softAP Sleep ?

is there any solution for ESP8266 or ESP32 sleep in the softAP mode during communication ? I need to communicate with only one client at same time (for example with a smartphone) and send measurement data from softAP to a client. The client should see a network SSID of the ESP softAP in his list of access points. I don't know how to save energy, because the device will be small mobile and battery powered (max 3 hours @ 100 mA on battery).

Next question is about the Station LightSleep. I have tested it, and I think, that the client stay connected to an AP, but he is disconnected from the server after entering the light sleep mode. Is there any solution to stay connected to a server ?

Thank you,

Can you keep running during sleep?
