  1. I don't have an advanced button, step number 5 of turn on. I don't think I noticed my phone doing this until I started seeing up this Google Cloud. It switching off of WiFi when it goes to sleep has me at only 50% after 11 hours of the backup. Almost half of that backup was done without WiFi.

    1. Hi RudeCock,
      Thanks for coming.
      I'm so sorry to say, seems I've been missed something. To find Advanced option, in the Wi-Fi menu, tap the Menu key then select Advanced. From here, you should be able to find an option to keep Wi-Fi on during sleep.
      Hope this helps :)
