    I recently got the S-Pen Tab A to use at work as I am a PE teacher and do not want a laptop in the gym for attendance and grading.

    Our school has a WiFi connection that requires re-authentication after 3 hours (it helps keep the students off), and my Tab A has been requiring me to re-authenticate after it enters sleep mode.

    I have the WiFi set to stay on even during sleep, so why is this happening?

    I'm having to re-authenticate every time I pick it up rather than twice per day.

    Anyone know how I can change this?

    Do you have any power saving modes turned on? That may override that wi-fi setting you mentioned.

    HI Matt, if that is your real name......... seeems suss.

    I would check out this thread to start off with. http://api.viglink.com/api/click?for...l.com%2F2g9mqh


    If you go into battery usage is your wifi staying on constantly or dropping out?

    Rick Astley totally cleared the dance floor, I guess.

    Check the Settings>Battery graph, and see if it shows wi-fi remaining on constantly, even if the device is asleep. That can help us figure out if the problem is due to wi-fi inappropriately turning off while asleep.

    Yeowtch.

    I can't understand why some manufacturers take away certain features, like the ability to expand the battery graph to fullscreen, thus showing information about the cell signal, wi-fi radio, and awake state. Try installing a 3rd party battery monitor like GSam to get that info.

    Your device probably turns off wifi and when you go back to use it, probably have to request for a new ip so it needs that authentication thing your school has.
