Default Phone goes into deep sleep?

When my phone is not in use, ie just sitting there on my desk during the day, the wifi turns off and I get no data. Therefore I get no e-mail. I still get texts and phone calls. Also any app that uses data will error out. When I wake my phone up to check on something I have to wait for wifi to reenable. Does anybody have this problem?

if its during the middle of the night, like 12-6 or so, its something recent HTC phones have always done. If mines plugged in, it doesnt do that though.

I leave it on the wireless charging station at night and the wifi stays on. It is during the day when I use it that this happens

Uh oh. I just posted a new thread asking if this problem existed in the DNA like it does in other recent HTC phones. I have the exact issue with my Inc4G. It's a stupid "feature". HTC says it's by design to save power.

The work around (at least for me and my Inc4G) is an app called REGPON wifi KeepAlive. IT works, but annoying to have to run an app to fix what shouldn't be broken.

EDIT: My issue is slightly different. My wifi stays connected, but won't send or receive any data. Maybe it's a different issue (I sure hope so).

Like I said in hilmar's topic, check your energy saving measures. In my case, the Longevity app was the cause of this problem. As soon as I got rid of it, the wireless stopped cutting out when my phone went to sleep.
