    Is there any apps or settings that one can check to see if their wifi is active when the screen is turned off? I have a suspicion that my wifi is not being used when in standby. Thanks.

    Mine has recently begun turning off wifi at night, when I plug it in to charge and go to bed. I'm not sure what is going on.

    Mine doesn't appear to disconnect , meaning it's not reconnecting when I turn my screen back on. However, I'd like to see it it is truly connected when screen is off. I dont trust gsam as it shows wifi on but even when off it shows it as always on in the charts.

    I have to manually turn my wifi back on in the morning. It is really annoying.

    Go through your settings. Particularly your performance and battery selections.

    Double check power saving mode , and if you have phone restart enabled at night for optimization.

    Sort of - don't have power saving enabled for WiFi. If you do, it stops when the screen is off.

    Turn off data, leave on wifi. Send yourself a test email from another device.

    If you have WiFi set to power saving, WiFi shuts off when the screen does.

    It depends on the OPs settings here if he's using some power saving.

    And the original question was about WiFi shutting off when the screen does, so ...

    No it doesn't. I just checked this. I have the option to analyze wifi and save power enabled in developer settings ON. I did what someone mentioned. Turned off mobile data, turned screen off and sent a WhatsApp message from wife's phone to mine and it came through.

    Good to hear. Check again later, as certain features I. e. Doze, wouldn't kick in for a while.

    Power savings kicks in if you aren't using the app - as soon as you use it, it turns on.
    Even id the "app" is WiFi.

    I think the OP is saying he was not using the app on the trouble device during the test. It received a internet via Wi-Fi message while snoozing.

    If you go to settings→connection→data use →scroll down to WiFi data usage
