Press Menu button->Settings->Wireless & networks->Wi-Fi Settings->Menu button (again)->Advanced.

Under Wi-Fi sleep policy, choose the setting of your preference (I use "Never when plugged in". When not plugged, this setting turns off Wi-Fi when the screen is off.

Any advice is appreciated. Cheers!
Forget LG's advice (not battery savvy) and stop killing Wi-Fi. Just use my setting and plug the phone in (or extend the screen timeout) when you want Wi-Fi to be alive.

I have no problem getting Wi-Fi back from sleep mode (maybe because I don't use a 3rd-party app to manage it).
