    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

    So, its not fixed, but the problem lies with my power control widget being on my home screen. If its on my homescreen, when my screen turns off, wifi turns off.... But if its not on my screen, wifi will stay on until the battery dies....lol

    There could be a registery error from when you restored everything. But I feel your pain since I use wifi all the time and know the hassle of not being able to use it.
    For now you could just not lock the screen until you permanently fix it.

    No, but I may just switch ROMS to liberty to see if that helps... Weird thing is, if I leave the GPS on in the power control widget, Wifi does not turn off when the phones asleep. But if its just Wifi left on, it will eventually turn off.... Very weird...

    SOLVED!
    From Motorola Droid X :: WiFi Sleep Policy - Optimal Setting?

    Motorola Droid X :: WiFi Sleep Policy - Optimal Setting?

    "If you go to Settings->Wireless and Networks -> Wifi Settings and then hit the Menu button (the one with for squares on the bottom left) and go to advanced there is an option for Wi-fi Sleep Policy. It looks like the default is to turn off wi-fi and switch to mobile data when the screen turns off? Is this the optimal setting? Wouldn't you want it to never turn off (assuming you are in range of wifi)? That way any alerts etc. are all handled over wifi instead of data?"


    Solved the problem for me with Rubix Blurry 2.0 dancedroid
