    On my Moto G (CDMA Boost Mobile) when it is on wifi streaming, The wifi turns off when the screen goes to sleep. I have changed the settings for it to wifi stay on but it still does it. I have tried an app that over rides and that did no good. As I purchased this phone to replace an ipod touch it is a major inconvenience.
    Any suggestions?

    Thom, I change the advanced wifi setting , Keep wifi on during sleep, to always. I also tried installing "Keep wifi alive " from the google play store. This worked great on my Nexus 7 tablet. It made no difference on the Moto G
