    Not sure. Give it a while to see if WiFi does indeed stay on under screen lock. I know on mine that WiFi will sometimes remain on but most of the time is turned off.

    I thought Pre Portico, phone would keep WiFi on if something was using data? Even if phone timed out.

    If something is using data (running app, streaming audio, etc) then the WiFi connection won't be killed. It also doesn't get killed when plugged in to external power.

    Leave it off for a good minute or so before making a judgement, it doesn't disconnect immediately.

    Well, no, all apps are killed, after about 15 minutes of waiting, I woke my phone and wifi is on! Something is clearly wrong

    Well, it doesn't actually disable the switch. So when the screen turns off and the phone is idle, it will disconnect from wifi and when you turn the screen on, it will reconnect after a few seconds. Is that what you are seeing?

    Yes thats right. The point is that before reset wifi was switching off the I locked the phone. After reset I restored my apps, messages and other stuff that was on backup. I dont have Portico installed, there isnt any settings of keeping wifi on then screen turns off.

    Is it showing as connected the instant you turn the screen on or showing as on but not connected?

    No need to get snotty. You haven't done a very good job of clarifying what you see up to this point and many folks didn't realize how it even worked pre-portico. I was just trying to bring a clear picture to the thread by asking questions.

    Hope you find a fix. But if you don't, what is the concern? I would have loved this "glitch" pre-portico.

    Yep, I tried to experiment with this "glitch", I plugged the power source and after a minute plugged it off. Now the phone turns off the wifi then I turn off the screen... :( Thanks for trying to help. My english isnt very good, sorry for any mistakes I did. Maybe it was just some kind of bug or something...
