Hi all,

I've been using my phone in a way that it disconnects the wifi when locked down (I have a data-plan so notifications are coming through edge usually).
And I've just realised that it's a bit annoying (actually no big deal^^) that when I want to check something relatively fast,
I need to wait a few secs (depending on the wifi, ~3-5 secs) to get connected again.

I wonder, how much more does the battery get drained when the phone is always connected to wifi?
Is there a "connected but idle" state?

Thx
