    Default WiFi Sync Issue

    I'm having a problem with WiFi sync on the PC but I don't think it's iTunes related, I thing it's iOS5. It seems as though it loses it's link with iTunes whenever the iPhone goes to sleep for a while. I turned WiFi off and on and it reestablishes the link right away. That would make me think it's a polling issue in iOS5. What do you guys think?

    The whole wifi sync has been FUBAR throughout the beta process. Haven't turned it back on since Beta 3 when it kept forcing me to set my phone up as new over and over.

    On second though I guess it might be iTunes related because if I shut down iTunes it loses the link. This is causing an issue for me as I want to have iTunes startup in the morning when my computer auto boots to do the sync.

Anyone know what the deal is? Also I have the latest version of the iTunes beta and has the iOS 5 GM installed on my phone.
    Make sure 'Sync this iPhone over wi-fi' is checked in the Summary section in iTunes. If it is not there, make sure you are updated to the latest version of Snow Leopard if you're on a Mac.
