    Hey all,

    I've noticed something weird with WiFi recently - it's set to be always on, even on standby. But when the phone hits battery saver mode, the WiFi either switches off by itself, or switches off the moment I try and connect to a network.

    Has anyone else noticed this/is it normal for the 'always on' setting?

    That is normal. It is part of the 'battery saver' mode. Switching off Wi-Fi saves battery...

    It's normal for battery saver. Battery saver terminates background processes. The only way to keep WiFi going is to disable battery saver. Or just charge more frequently. ;)

    Aha! Thanks :) I had a feeling that might be the case, but just wasn't something I'd noticed before!

    I would charge more frequently if I could afford a second wireless charger - and trusted the night shift not to 'borrow' it from my desk :(

    Or plug in once in a while... I believe Nokia including a conventional charger with your phone. ;)

    O', the convenience of wirless charging is just too great! With the amount of time I spend not at my desk during the day, if I plugged in my phone every time I sat down and unplugged it when I left I'd wear out the charger pretty quickly, with a wireless charger I just have to put it down in the right place....
    ...in any case, the battery normally lasts well into the evening anyway, it's only an issue if I'm really hammering it.
