    No, wifi turns off while sleeping to save battery.

    Nope.
    It does that to save battery. When you're not using it wifi turns off.
    Leave it plugged in the charger and it might retain the connection longer even when it goes to sleep.

    Persistent wifi only works if it's plugged in to a power source (even if the status says otherwise).
