Almost every day I get a notification from my phone (Sony Xperia M, Android 4.3), which says: McAfee Security is preventing Stamina Mode. Stamina mode is something I want because it saves majorly on power. Now, since I have installed McAfee I have to charge my phone a lot more than I used to. How do I resolve this conflict?

Hopefully one with the expertize will pick up this thread, and add to the discussion. You have the option also to contact Technical Support ; Services and Support for Home and Office

This is probably due to the fact that the software needs to "call home" at regular intervals to make sure it's updated and in that mode all Apps are prevented from doing so..
I'm not familiar with that phone or Stamina Mode but I see online that it may be possible to allow McAfee through as per How Sony’s Battery STAMINA Mode works – Developer World
If that doesn't help I suggest you call Mobile Technical Support to see if they can help. Link below.

Thanks. I added McAfee Security App to the list "Apps active in Standby" on the Stamina mode page on my phone. I will see if this takes care of the problem.
Here is another Link regarding 'Stamina" Mode, Not sure if it will be of any help. As Ex_Brit stated, you may benefit contacting Technical Support. Sony Xperia Z: Common Problems and how to fix them | Digital Trends Of course your particular phone being 'Sony Xperia M, Android 4.3, am uncertain if this information will apply?
Thanks, I did contact Techical support, and the person there suggested I update the Mcafee app, which I did. So I'll see how it goes. Hopefully, stamina mode will start working again normally.
