    You mean it *won't* disconnect.

    This is now happening with my 920 as well, ever since I updated to GDR2/Amber. Honestly, it's nothing to become alarmed about. I'm actually preferring my Wi-Fi to stay on now that I see it's not affecting the battery life. I guess it's just something that happens after you get GDR2/Amber.

    I see we have a language barrier. When I said it's nothing to be alarmed about, I wasn't talking about the alarm. I meant that you don't have to worry about it.

    As chezm said, it should still disable when battery saver is on.

    Ya I just keep the battery saver off, since I'd prefer a connection to WiFi as frequently as possible...even with a 4gb shared plan.
