    Question Wifi turns off - interrupts music stream

    Hey all,
    I have been having this issue with my wifi and havent found a solution for it yet. I listen to music streams likes pandora and XiiaLive, but shortly after my screen turns off the wifi disconnects and the music stops to rebuffer with 3G. Once I turn my screen back on, the music stops again to reconnect to the wifi and rebuffer. A half hour of this and it gets pretty annoying. I like to use wifi rather than 3G when available. I have my wifi sleep policy set to never. This is not router specific and happens on any wireless that I am connected to.
    Any ideas?

    Weird. Never happens to me...I use wifi or 3g depending where I am and it never stops with the screen turning off or on. Is your phone stock or rooted and romed?

    My phone is stock, I haven't rooted my phone yet, still on the fence about that.
    The wifi doesn't turn off immediately with the screen, usually 10 mins afterwards. Ill try having it plugged in and see if it gives me the same issues, I'm not sure if the battery usage is timing out the wifi.

    This happens to me as well. I will connect to my router and after a few minutes of idling, the wifi won't disconnect, but actually turn off. Sleep policy is set to never as well- stock. I'm thinking of trying for a replacement since I haven't found a solution yet.. anyone have one?

    I tested having the phone plugged in and listening to music, as far as I could tell it never disconnected. The sleep policy must not be getting over ruled by the phone ideling. I had mine plugged into my computer and not the outlet, not too sure if that would make a difference tho..

    It's not a single handset issue. WiFi will D/C after about 10 minutes of idle. It does it everytime for me, rooted, stock, stock rooted, doesn't matter.

    So I guess the only way to listen to pandora, xiialive or any other music stream via wifi is to have the phone plugged in so it doesnt go to idle. That kinda sucks, but Im usually listening to music while on my computer or something so outlets are nearby.

    Actually, all you have to do is edit the wifi sleep policy.

    Settings > Wireless & Networks > Wi-fi settings > Press the menu button and select 'Advanced'

    Under 'Wi-fi Sleep Policy', select 'Never'

    That should fix it

    In my first post I listed I have the wifi sleep policy set to never, but that doesn't seem to work. It works only when its plugged in to ac/usb.

    I thought of this after someone said that it doesn't do it when plugged in, battery saver turns off when plugged in

    Battery saver will disrupt all sending and receiving with wifi after a preset time if you have it enabled, such as email updates and music streaming.

    When you change the battery mode out of performance mode a warning pops up saying that data transfers may be interrupted when battery save is enabled. so this is where to change it

    Settings>Battery Manager>Battery mode>Performance mode

    or make a custom battery saver (the small settings icon to the right of custom battery saver)

    so it will not interrupt wifi when it will be streaming, set the times of day it will be steaming. I have been streaming on battery for 30 min now with no interruption.

    update:
    I have been streaming for a few hours now with no problems.
