    4.1.2 stock JB

    Default Wi-fi weird behavior

    I dont know if it affects sync or any other app while device is in stand by mode..

    Sometimes when i wake up my gnex i don't see my wifi indicator and half second later i see wifi indicator pops out then it turns grey and only then back to blue mode. Skype icon turns to offline then back to online. Anyone experienced anything like that? Running stock JB 4.2.1 wifi sleep mode is always on.

    I have this same issue. I have the WiFi sleep policy set to always keep on, but it still does what you described.

    Yes, that started in 4.2 or 4.2.1. It is supposed to save the battery by "sleeping" the wifi when the phone is in sleep mode. I don't know that it is technically turning the wifi off so much as turning off the wifi search. In any event, without further explanation from Google it does give the appearance of a bug.
