Hello..I've noticed that when i'm in my parent's home where i have a cheap Access Point i get minimal Android OS battery drain, whereas on my home,using a Belkin WiFi Router (Surf 150N is the model),Android OS keeps the device awake a lot.Is there a setting which must be tweaked in order to minimize that drain?Or should i try a new Router here in my home..Thanks for the help in advance!

Does your WiFi stay on during sleep?

Thank you for your time.
Yes I have it enabled all the time,with some sync'd accounts and battery saving location..The same settings I used in my parents' house.Android OS drain was like 10min keep awake in 2 days..Now it reports that it is about 2hrs in 30hrs overall after last charge..I get that thing for a while now,and I started thinking if it's because of the WiFi router I use here.If you need,I can copy the settings I use..On the cheap AP,I haven't changed a thing.
