Settings-power management. But I think you have some 3rd party apps acting up. Did you install any task killers?

Can you check if the same occurs in safe mode?

I had the same problem with FON app ... well, I did not know it was FON app till I read this post. Now I have verified that it only happens if the app is not running but it is installed. Not sure if you have to log in first (because I am FON user), but after starting it and logging in  it seems that wifi is working fine.

 

I will raie a case to FON.
