I was told to turn off the auto schedule. It's in setting. I did this but it still turned on. I had to delete all my schedule settings every time I go away and want to keep it at a temperature. Maybe I'm missing something but it's a pain to have to read structure the schedule after I return
One possible work-around is to change the mode to Heat-Cool. Each mode has its own schedule so changing to H+C would have no schedule set and would maintain whatever it was set to. Switch back to Heat mode (or Cooling mode) to resume your programmed schedule. No need to delete it and re-program again.
