    I noticed on my iPhone 5 that if its sleeping, iTunes wont see it until i wake the phone.

    I also have an iPad 3 and iTunes see it when his sleeping.

    Not sure if its a bug or by design.

    I've found WiFi on my iPhone to be utterly abysmal in terms of maintaining a network during sleep.

    If I take it out of my pocket and wake it up, it can be many minutes before it will pop itself back on a known network.
