Xperia Z turns wifi off after a while

Xperia Z turns wifi off after a while

This is starting to bug me.

 

Xperia Z will turn wifi off after a while when I turn off the screen.

This would be fine if the stamina settings were activated, but they are not. So wifi should stay on all the time.

I've also disabled location settings but this makes no difference.

Leave it a few minutes in standby and the wifi will turn off.

Take the phone out of standby and the wifi will turn back on and reconnect to the AP.

 

Any ideas?

Thanks

Have you checked the Wi-Fi sleep policy?
Settings > Wi-Fi > Option dots > Advanced > Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep.

Go to POWER MANAGEMENT in SETTINGS and check if the Location-based Wi-Fi is ON. Turn it OFF and it should resolve the problem.
