[Q] WiFi turning off when device is sleeping

My WiFi is intermittently disconnecting when my device is asleep. I wake it up and the WiFi is often 'disconnected', but connects automatically once it's awake.

When I wake my phone, there's no WiFi connection and there's a little '?' next to the mobile signal icon - but when I wake it up, the WiFi connects and the '?' on the mobile signal disappeared.

'Keep WiFi on during the sleep' is toggled to 'always', so I really can't understand why it's doing this.

I've had Lollipop for about a month now, but it's only started happening today. I've 'forgot' the network, restarted the device and reconnected, but it's still dropping out when my phone's asleep.

Cheers

I am actually having this same problem. Never happened with KitKat but lollipop I notice it. Also have WiFi set to "always" bit still doesn't work.

If rooted, and using Titanium backup, avoid backing up the wifi settings. Just touching the two files with TiB, breaks wifi connectivity.
Search Google on how to actually setup TiB for this.

Are you on the 5.1.1 radio? Mine has been doing this ever since updating. It has done it on stock 5.1.1, CM CAF 12.1, and the M Dev Preview.

Did Anybody fund a solution to this? My Nexus 6 turns WiFi off almost every time the device sleeps. Ive checked and Keep WiFi on is set to ALWAYS

I've been having this issue as well. I've contacted google and they've sent me three replacements. Same issue on all of them.

I thought it could be my router, but this isn't happening to any of my other 8 devices. I also see this problem when I'm on different Wifi in different locations. They're getting a specialist to look into my case now :confused:

Same issue in Marshmallow

Well ever since i updated to Marshmallow i am facing this on my N5.
First i thought its because defult battery optimization that comes with this. So i removed "Google connectivity service" from optimization but it din't help.
"Keep wifi on during sleep" flag is set to 'always' as you guys..

Can't say bug or feature but its annoying..
