Raspberry pi 2B+ loses Wifi connection / USB Wifi dongle

I'm using Venus OS 2.73 on a Raspberry Pi 2B+ with a Wifi dongle.

Wifi works fine, but after a while Venus OS goes offline and shows "error" on the Wifi, and I have to manually reboot the Pi. I know, there's a "power saving" mode in Raspberry Pi regarding Wifi and normally I would add to my /etc/network/interfaces

wireless-power off

But from what I see inside that file, connman is used for Internet connectivity, which I don't know and I didn't find powersaving options in connman man-pages...

Is there some way I can deactivate power saving - or do something on my Pi losing Wifi? (the router is right next to the Pi, so signal is strong enough.

strangely enough, power_save seems to be off anyways:

root@venus:~# iw wlan0 get power_save
Power save: off

Hi binderth, I seem to have the exact same problem, once every 24 hours wifi stops working and can only be restarted by reboot.
did you find a solution to this?
