    WiFi keeps shutting off when phone sleeps

    Starters:

    ROM: Rubix Focused 1.9.5

    I just did a data wipe to clean out my contacts, and now my wifi turns off every time the phone goes to sleep. I have set the option to never turn off in
    Wireless and network>wifi setting>(menu button) Advanced>wifi sleep policy, but it still turns off when my phone goes to sleep.
    It was not doing this before the data wipe... Any suggestions?

    Nevermind I didn't read the top part. And I used to have the rubix rom so I don't think that's the problem.

    I know, it was working fine, but my contact list was screwed up because i mixed Backup assistant, and google contacts.. had like 43 of everybody, so i just wiped data, and bam, my wifi started doing this...

    Very interesting. But I had the same result when I first installed GummyJar 2.1 and when I connected to wifi it wouldn't stay stable. It kept connecting/disconnecting. The problem was that the bandwidth was at its limit. It worked fine after I waited 20 minutes. It was just a coincidence it occurred the same time I installed the rom making it seem like it the rom's fault.

    No, not disconnecting. I mean my wifi is getting turned off. Like going into setting>wireless>and turning off the wifi radio. When the screen on and the wifi is on, i have no issues at all. but when i hit the power button to turn off the screen, at somepoint my phone decides to turn off the wifi....the wifi used to just stay on until i physically turned it back off myself

    UPDATE: ok.... for some strange reason, deleting the power control widget off my homescreen, then placing it back on worked, and fixed the issue.... Very weird...


    Edit: I put the power control widget back on,turned on wifi, turned my screen off, looked on the internet for a bit, turned the screen back on, and my wifi was off again... so not fixed.....

    I forgot where but there is a setting where you can select your phone to turn wifi off when you lock the screen as a battery saving option I forgot where it is though. I'll try to check for you
