A11 major problems with Gmail notifications

Rising Star II
Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:
Model Name:
Firmware Version:
Rooted or not:
Frequency of Occurrence:
APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app):
In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.
After updating to A11 I started to see major issues with the battery optimizations, mostly on Gmail app, but once I started to investigate I see it overall. Email notification come with hours , if not tens of hours delay , which was not the case on A10. I noticed that even whether app is not updating in timely fashion.
It looks like phone goes to hibernate and not resumes for notification only once in a couple of hours if not more. Strangely but whatsapp is working fine. I have disabled all battery optimizations and I saw some improvements but not that good as in A10. Yesterday for instance, I lost a couple of important emails since they Gmail App only synchronized once in 10 hours....which is unacceptable.
Factory reset does not help since I have done it at least 7 times due to various issues since A11 update a week ago...

Please help!!!! I don't know what else to look for!

Yeah the miracle of notifications lasted less than a day. I started again the reboot dance....

So, still nothing found at ASUS ?
I'm really losing hope and I'm starting to look for a replacement by the end of the year if Android 12 does not fix this...

At least rebooting works for you, for me it does not work anymore so I'm stuck with some apps never updating in the background, that I have to update by launching them myself.

could you try to lock the affected apps in the task manager by long pressing and choosing them to lock?? I don't think it will help but it's one of the things I did in the past
I was also affected by this issue but since last update I haven't rebooted the phone yet as there was no need to do so at all (uptime 14+days ATM)
I also added these apps into the OptiFlex list but I don't have them included anymore
I think you all have these obvious features set as follows:
battery=> battery mode => performance
battery => autorun manager enabled
battery => App hibernation disabled
battery => Adaptive battery disabled
battery optimizations disabled also for Google Play Services and Framework
I hope I didn't forget any other obvious settings which would potentionally cause delayed/not showing notifications
