Your best bet, LEAVE IT ALONE when you turn the screen on and give it a little while to see if it does come back on after you start using the phone.
I did give it a little while. In this case it was 5 minutes without it making any attempt to connect. Normally it would be about a minute and during that minute it would scan and then attempt to connect.

There was a time a few weeks ago I was at a friends house and couldn't connect to his wifi. Two other iphones and another android in the house all connected fine.
Mine would scan, find it, attempt to connect, connect and then disconnect. And it was stuck in that loop all night.

The only battery app I have installed is battery circle. Not sure if it's the issue.
The phone has been this way since the day I got it, even before installing these apps.
