Re: Ipad automatically turn off wifi after screen off

Are you referring to a normal W-Fi network or Personal Hotspot? If you're talking about a Personal Hotspot, that is normal behavior, but if you're talking about a normal Wi-Fi network, make sure your try the following (in order): reboot your device, delete and reconfigure the network, reset network settings.
