I've had the auto shutdown problem thinking it was a software problem. Brought it back to the service center under warranty. They changed the battery to a higher capacity. The problem turned out to be the battery. It was under capacity, therefore,the auto shutdown. My unit is now doing well. The first batches of M5 had this defective batteries

Wifi is still there when you lock the screen bit notification will be blocked to save up battery. When you turned on stamina mode it ia activated but you can turn it off manually in settings. So Even if you lock the screen you can stillreceive notification. Try to read the manual before you post

Dear User,

Xperia m5 is a very nice phone, you'll get everything you need.I got disappointed 3 times at first, I received 2 defective phones which has a version 1 battery which is causing the auto-shutdown at places where LTE and 3G signal is low. It won't start unless you connect it with a charger/ powerbank. Most M5 units have this problem, don't replace it unless there is a green circular sticker on the box, it means the phone has a version 3 battery which will not trigger the auto-shutdown. In my case I went to Sony Centre and changed my battery to version 3 at no cost, now it works perfectly
