Hey people,

Really suffering here at work where the wifi causes a wakelock that destroys my battery. Any chance the community has found a fix to this issue? It doesn't happen at home on either of my two routers. No matter where I am at work, however, my battery goes down like mad when connected to Wifi.

There are multiple threads with the same issue if you do a search. Basically it's not something a kernel or a custom ROM at this point and most likely relates to wifi somehow.

That particular wake lock is triggered any time the phone is awoken from deep sleep to send or receive data on wifi. If you are having issues with just one particular wifi network, that is likely DHCP/dynamic IP related. There are reports of issues with certain wifi routers that are using dynamic IP addresses causing DHCP queries to constantly wake the device.
