Xperia U not releasing WiFi connection

My U connects to the wifi at home, but then won't 'release' the connection when I'm anywhere else. So I have to swich the phone off and on again to get another connection.

Any ideas?

Know issue with ICS. Do a factory reset and it it doesn't help then try repairing via PC Companion.

Well, doing the factory reset worked, although it was a pain having to reinstall everything. But three months later it did it again - why? Solution the same?

Sony never fix this issue, the only way to fix it is root your phone....
