Probably just a random occurance that keeps Wi-Fi connected, because we certainly don't know exactly under what conditions Wi-Fi decides to connect and reconnect.
    I agree, but something is keeping my WiFi on, and the only thing I did was install the update to extras+info and reboot.

    Its odd but I don't mind the results lol

    And I'm not streaming or doing anything with my phone, just locking the screen and setting it down.

    Yes, don't you understand? When the phone is plugged in, it will always stay connected to WiFi. It has always been this way.

    Do this, cell data off, WiFi on, unplug your phone from the charger, wait about 10 mins, check. If your WiFi is still on, then we're on to something.

    And regarding streaming music, if you start streaming on WiFi, it will continue streaming on WiFi for as long as it is still streaming.

    That was the trick of apps that keep WiFi alive. They tricked the phone to think it was constantly streaming music.

    That is good to know, I suppose I misunderstood the posts ive read. I for the life of me cannot fathom a problem with an idle wifi connection disconnecting but apparently it is an issue for some. I am glad for them that it will be resolved in the near future.

    People here are so rude, just because your device isn't staying connected it doesn't mean others aren't. This isn't an android forum so please stop with the arrogance. And fyi, my 920 stays connected. And NO its not charging

    Extras+info should keep the wifi online for 10 minutes after turning the screen off, also there will be more options to these wifi settings with portico update.

    I did test my Lumia again and I found that, the WiFi stay connected for some period (assume that not more than 10 minutes).
    Then it turn off as usual.

    For me, I never said that the OP is lying or fool us.
    But, you share your experienced, and I do share mine.

    Maybe, I need to wait for MS update. - -'

    ok. So I figured I will chime in as well. Perhaps its just a coincidence, but here is whats happening with me.

    Almost every day I listen to music streaming through Nokia Music at work. The phone is never plugged in or on a wireless charger. While using the company wifi, the music would stop after a few mins in play while in standby. Every single time that music would stop playing and the wifi would be disconnected, unless I used my phones data connection.

    Today I updated extras+info on the phone. I did not reboot, but simply updated/installed and tried to stream in wifi. After 5mins in standby the music stopped playing and my wifi connection was not connected. Now here is where it gets interesting--I powered down the phone and powered back up. While playing Nokia music again--the connection has yet to disconnect and has been playing for the last 35mins.

    I honestly, am not sure what is driving this. Just thought it was interesting that I have been doing the same activity almost every day for almost a month and the music would stop. Now today it keeps playing on wifi. Just my thoughts... Not sure what the deal is.

    i tested out my device. even restarted it before the the test. every 30min my email settings are set to push notification to me, so saying i get an email after 30min with my screen locked doesnt mean my wifi is still on. it's going to do that anyway. but i did wait 20min and wake my phone with the power button. the wifi icon was up and full on the lock screen. but after i unlocked the screen the wifi icon would go away and come back with no signal then like 3sec later it would have full signal again. that means it's reconnecting every time.

    My wifi is not staying connected. I let my phone sit there for 10 minutes, and afterwards I opened it up, the Wifi Symbol was grey and not white then it started to look for a signal.

    I figured I'd give this a test also and it appears mine isn't staying connected either after the update and a restart.

    I ran a ping test and locked the screen. It managed to respond about a dozen times before it started timing out. I woke the phone and after about a second or two the pings resumed. Once I locked it again the above pattern repeated. It seems to only stay active for about a minute or less.
