I wanted to receive notifications on some news articles and likewise i have some apps for which i want to get some notifications too so i always put the wifi on. Its been 2 days since I started noticing it. Please help to solve this.

    Phone: Galaxy Note SGH - i7i7.

    Thanks

    Don't have an answer for you, but wanted to welcome you to the site. This problem is one reason I don't use WiFi much.

    Hi sumchans and welcome to the site!

    I'm not familiar with the Galaxy Note's settings but should be fairly similar to my Nexus... Open up settings and click on Wi-Fi then click advanced. You should see something like this:




    Be sure to select "Always" to keep wi-fi on during sleep state.
