    Default Wifi keeps going to sleep

    I have my wifi to always keep awake during sleep, but it keeps disconnecting after a few minutes of the screen being off, no matter what I do, even if there is data traffic.

    Say for instance I'm streaming Pandora or TuneIn Radio via wifi, after a few minutes of the screen being off the wifi will cut off and switch to mobile data. I even tried turning mobile data off and the wifi still cuts off, then the content I was streaming of course cuts out until the screen is turned back on and wifi connects again.

    Has anyone else had this issue? This issue has happened to me across numerous ROMs.

    Must be an issue with your ROM. Post it in the developer's thread.

    It has happened on different ROMs, that's why I thought it might be a problem with my phone. I'm going to flash back to stock to see if it still does it

    Not sure if this is the same issue or not but my phone will say 3g when I wake it up sometimes. It will take about 3 to 4 seconds for the wifi icon to get back in my status bar. Every other phone I have had I never had this problem. And yes I have it set to Always stay on in sleep mode. However I don't have any disruptions when streaming pandora or anything along them lines.

    I was having the same issue, Verizon suggested turning OFF the leave Wifi on when phone sleeps, and now if phone shuts down for a few minutes, as soon as I wake it up it reconnects to network. Works great.

    There's no reason to do this. When wifi turns off, data turns on. Data uses more battery than wifi does. Leave Wifi on.

    i had the same issue when i changed my data back to 3G, even though I had wi-fi on. then i put it back on 4G and the issue still happened. After I rebooted my phone it started working properly and the Wi-Fi sayed on continuously. I have the stock rom, rooted. not sure why this happened randomly.

    I was running rootzboat and it would do it, and now it is doing it on cm9 Lang,so rom might have something to do with it. Going to flash back to stock this evening and see how that works.

    I know I said that earlier but I saw the cm9 rom and I couldn't help it.

    I am having the same issue on my GSM GNex, running AOKP Milestone 1 ROM. Before that I ran McR and had the same issue. I will be going back to stock. Should I go to 4.01 or 4.02?

    I have the same issue as well. With the Keep awake during sleep set to always, I have to continually stop and restart wifi to get signal. After reading these posts, I switched it to never and haven't had an issue since yesterday morning. Thanks!

    When I had AXIOM 2.3 installed I never encountered this. But even on stock it happened to me rarely.

    I've been on stock for a few weeks now and I'm still having the same issue... It must be a bug or something, but it seems that not everyone is experiencing it.

    I have been having the same problem since I got the phone. Bone stock, have "keep Wifi on during sleep checked" as well. If I didnt have unlimited data I'd be more annoyed at this.

    I have a similar problem. But not on all wifi networks. I notice at home I stay connected all the time. At work it comes and goes. The only difference is that at work the SSID is hidden. Before you think that can't be the problem we had the same issue with a bunch of Macs and iOS devices at work. They're on a different wifi network. The network guys did some research and found that Apple devices have troubles with hidden SSIDs in some scenarios. We made their SSID visible and the Apple folks are now happy campers.

    Odd, but true.

    I just posted on the other thread, my wifi sleeps when my screen sleeps but it seamlessly wakes when my screen is back on.

    I guess if it had to pause to reconnect it every time, that would be bad.

    I listen to in tunes and I believe it stays connected until the radio sleeps (I set it to an hour). But I'll double check tonight

    Stock. Unlocked bootloader and Rooted and I have the same issue. I didnt notice it until after I downloaded the switch pro widget though. Gonna uninstall and see what happens

    Edit: *faceplam* I went into advanced setting and set to always on. Flawless now

    It seems like when I have the radio going with the screen off, it keeps the wireless connected, then when the radio turns off the wireless sleeps. That's the best way because it's seamless, but you guys weren't getting that kind of management

    Set on "always," when I come out of sleep, it is on 3G and then connects to wifi. But I have now set it to "never" and it goes straight to wifi. It's as if it is doing the opposite of what it should do.

    Curious as to just what is happening when it is asleep but not overly concerned since my data is also unlimited.

    I am my second Galaxy Nexus due to other issues. The first one did not have this wifi sleep issue, but my current GN does ( I installed a VOIP app on the second that was not on the first... not sure if this has anything to do with the wifi sleep issue). I think I may have found a work around. I changed the setting to never and tested a few times. Then I changed it to always again and now wifi remains on while the phone sleeps. I have tested it a few times and so far it is still working. I will update the post if the problem reoccurs.

    I'm now having the exact same problem with my GN.

    However, I only started having this problem when I replaced my wireless router from an old G standard to a newer N standard. Surely enough, if I decrease the wifi speed on my new wireless router (NETGEAR WNDR3800) from "up to 300 MBps" to "up to 54 MBps", the wifi shutoff problem goes away.

    Strange.
