With the update to Android 4.0.3, I noticed that the wifi is always on.

I used to have the sleep policy where is turns itself of when ilse for some time.

Where did this feature go with ICS?

On a pretty much vanilla build on my EVO, I can get to it by going into
Settings->Wifi->(Menu Button)->Advanced. It's listed as "Keep WiFi on during sleep". Just be sure to tap on the left half of the "Wifi" menu item, since the right half is simply the toggle.

  • Indeed! Thank you! The button on the right was quite confusing. Also, I have a big thumb and whenever I touched the bar, I would simply toggle the wifi on/off.

  • As it turns out, the wifi is still on all the time! No matter which option I choose... Reset did not help.

  • @Matt: Hm, well that certainly sounds like a bug! Dec 20, 2011 at 14:03
  • Holy cow, how long had I been looking for that option! Many thanks @eldarerathis for the directions, I've now found it and set it. Nice. Mar 18, 2012 at 3:50
