Wifi Disconnect After Sleep?

So I know it's supposed to be a battery saving "feature", but upon resuming from sleep mode (assuming it's been asleep for a minute or so), it drops the connection.

Well aside from the fact I would like it to keep the connection in sleep mode, it takes a really long time to reestablish the connection. What gives? The iPhone has the same approach, but quickly reestablishes it's connection.

WiFi Disconnect Automatic After Few Time
Every time I leave my house with my iPad and come back home, my Wi-Fi cuts out. It can still be found but it either states that the password is incorrect or server times out. My internet only cuts out when I turn my iPad back on from lock screen. And the only way I can reconnect is if I turn everything off. Information :
Macbook Mac OS X (10.5.8).

Fixing WiFi/ Disconnect After Some Minutes?
I can connect my new iPad to my wiFi router (Actiontec) but after several minutes connection is lost. I need to re-sign in. I worked with Verizon to reset router per Apple instructions (kb/T53304) but nothing helped. Switching from WEP to WPA or WPA2 was useless.

Does Wifi Sleep When It Sleeps?
If you leave wifi on and you put your ipad to sleep, does wifi power down -- or does it continue to drain battery?

In other words, am I correct in assuming that if I want to cut down on battery use, I should turn wifi off every time I put the pad to sleep?

(I've got the iPad 3G, but use it in airplane mode with wifi turned on... Unless I put it to sleep in which case I turn wifi off... Am I doing all of this unnecessarily?)

Shuts Off Wifi When It Goes Into Sleep Mode
Currently Iphone shuts off wifi when it goes into sleep mode and I suspect the Ipad will do the same.Which means that push on the Ipad is going to suck? Anyone have any experience how the ipod touch does this?

Wifi Still Running In Sleep Mode
I know that turning on the wifi will consume more battery.

So I was wondering if my iPad is in Sleep mode, does the wifi turn off automatically? or is it still running in sleep mode?

Unable To Connect To Wifi After Wakes Up From Sleep
Hi guys!I have an issue about connecting to WIFI. My iPad 3G is unable to connect to wifi after it wakes up from sleep. If I keep using the iPad, it works very well. But if I locked it for a while, such as 3 or 4 hours, it will be unable to connect the same wifi network. The ipad displays still connect to the current wifi and the signal is very strong, but I can't access online. I tried to turn off the Wi-Fi in "Setting" and restart it. It doesn't work. And I also tried to "Renew Lease" in the "Setting". It still doesn't work. Restart the ipad still doesn't work. The only way getting online is to restart my router. After the router restarts, my ipad could connect to wifi and work very well. But my iMac, iphone, and iMac book doesn't have this issue.

How can I fix this problem? I'm troubled with this issue for a week. I really want to resolve it.

Is the ipad always connected to wifi or 4g/3g even when it is in sleep? During sleep and during use if you are not connected to a wifi network is it always searching for a network? How much battery life does push notifications use? Is there a way to turn them off? what about icloud and if you only have find my iphone on? is there a way to turn off push notifications when you are on a cellular network or it always on using small amounts of data untill you turn it off in the settings. I checked my router and it says my ipad is connected even when it is sleeping. Why is it?

Ipad Doesn't Connect To WiFi Router After Sleep Mode
If I have my WiFi turned off and turn it back on, my Router when I wake my iPad 2 from Sleep mode it doesn't connect to the WiFi Router. If I go into settings I can see the iPad 2 scanning but doesn't connect to my Router. If I close the Smart Cover and open it again, it connects to my WiFi Router. It never drops out after that. I'm leaning on it being a quirk but want to ask as I have till June 19th before I can return it to Apple.

Fully Charged - Disconnect
I know that Apple recommends that you should completely drain your iPad at least once a month, but what do you do when your charging it up. What I mean is once you see The iPad at 100% Battery should you disconnect it? or if not using it keep it charged until you need it. Heard some postings on the net that you should disconnect your iPhone/iPad once it hits 100%. If you dont will this damage the battery?

Reset Network - Constantly Disconnect
My wife & I both have an iPad and we use our home Airport Extreme based network.

My wife's only recognizes the 5G one, and gets disconnected constantly ("server not responding")I have tried both the network reset and the iPad reset, but the problem remains on hers.

Imac Keyboard Pairing Disconnect To Use
I have read a number of things about this pairing. I have tried a number of things, but they are way to involved to make this a realistic way of moving back and forth between imac and ipad. The only way I can do it, is to just delete the keyboard pairing from the imac and then pair it to the ipad. This is not an exceptable solution. I tried others who said just disconnect the bluetooth connection. It works until I try pairing the keyboard with the ipad. I get nowhere with the ipad, because the keyboard has reconnected with the imac?

Disconnect The Syncing - Download Data
I hope this is the right forum and someone can direct me clearly. I have both and Iphone and Ipad and must admit I am not a "techy" person. Recently while on holiday in Europe I used the Ipad with an Italian sim card ( which worked just fine) however when I got home I found out I was charged horrendous data roaming charges on my Iphone. I am assuming that the data downloaded to the ipad also went to the phone automatically. I have Mobileme. Is there a way that I can temporarily disconnect the syncing when I travel, which I do a lot? Am I wrong in assuming that the data from the Ipad downloads went to the Iphone automatically?

Disconnect From Network When Sit 4 Feet Away From Router?

IPad 2 :: Bluetooth Disconnect But Not Forget ?
I can't be the only person wondering this, but is there a way to disconnect from a Bluetooth device without forgetting it?

I have Bluetooth speakers and Bluetooth headphones and I like to switch between them frequently. Evidently, in order to do that I need to forget the first device, then repair. This becomes a big pain because I need to flip the first device into discoverable mode again to find it and pair with it.

My phone and my computer allow me to stay paired to both, but only actively connected to one, it's easy enough to switch between them that way. Surely my iPad can do that as well?

Won't Go Into Sleep Mode
After using an App made specifically for the iPad and then try to turn off/put my iPad to sleep, it does not react at all. If I then start an App which was designed for the iPhone, then pressing the button on the top of the iPad leads directly to the iPad switching to sleep mode.

This does not happen with all iPad apps. Any ideas?

Sleep Or To Power Off?
I went to my Apple Tech Support people and they got my I Pad up and running. The head of tech support there said I should just leave the I Pad in sleep mode and don't have to turn it off. I've been reading different forums and there seems to be differences in what people think.

can I keep it in sleep mode? or must I shut it down?

Use Airprint When Mac Goes To Sleep
Yes, Printopia works flawlessly in printing wirelessly through Air Print off the iPad. EXCEPT when your Mac goes to sleep! Then Air Print and Printopia don't connect.

Do we have to live with this, or else keep the Mac on all the time (not very green), and never allow it to go to sleep automatically? A bit disappointing.

IOS 4 Update Causes With Sleep?
Since I updated my iPad (which worked flawless since it's June purchase) to IOS 4.2.1, I am having issues with sleep mode. Often when the it comes out of sleep mode, it is in recovery mode and will not wake using the normal method. The only options I have to get it to start is either reboot (hold down on & home) or connect to a computer and let it detect the iPad in recovery mode and restore. Is anyone out there experiencing this?

IOS 4.2 Battery In Sleep Mode
I noticed the battery in my Touch was dropping overnight after upgrading to 4.0. I have been turning off the Wi-Fi when I am not using it and it has been holding a charge.I just upgraded both my wife's and my iPads to 4.2. We are both experiencing problems with battery drain while in sleep mode. I charged my iPad to 100% then let it sleep for four hours. When I powered it back on it was at 96%. Without using it, I checked again in two hours and it was at 94%. My wife's iPad is the same. I turned off the Wi-Fi and will check again in a couple of hours to see if it is still falling. It's obvious that something in the new iOS is continuing to draw a lot of power while in sleep mode. That would suck if I had to remember to turn off the Wi-Fi and 3G every time I stop using my iPad. Anyone else seeing the same problems with their iPad's and iPod Touch's?

Eat Powers While In Sleep Mode?
I picked up my iPad after 3 days of inaction and it was down to 55% battery. Odd, I thought, perhaps I beat it up at the weekend and the battery got low. Plugged it in and charged it up to 100%, hit the sleepy switch on the top.

24 hours later its at 80%. It's done nothing unless elves have been playing youtube vids on it whilst I'm at work, it's really sat in the same spot asleep waiting for me to find something fun to try.

What's it doing with all that battery power? I can leave my iPhone out 4 days and it's still charged and that has a battery the size of .. well the size of an iPhone.

Do all iPads eat power when asleep?

I know that the option was kind of hidden on iPhone (under clock>timer or whatever), but I can't find any similar option on the iPad. I downloaded some app that purports to function as a sleep timer, but it's not ideal.

Battery Drain During Sleep
My new Ipad 4G battery drains about 10% while sleeping overnight. Location services is turned OFF, mobile data OFF, Mail fetch and push OFF, Fetch set to Manually, Icloud Inactive, the only thing that is on is WIFI.

Just on a test, if I turn on Airplane mode and turned off WIFI, it only drained 1% overnight. Why does WIFI take up battery life during sleep if almost everything has been turned off?

Ipad 2 Won't Go Into Sleep Mode
my ipad 2 won't go into sleep mode.I hope I'm using the right terminology here. By sleep mode I mean I can have my ipad cover open for several minutes and the screen won't go into a sleep mode or go blank even though it is not being used all.

I know before it used to go to sleep within a very short time - now it dosn't sleep at all.
Is there a setting for this somewhere - I for the life of me cannot find it.
