Why does my phone keep using data at night when I am asleep

I have noticed on my phone bill that I my phone keeps connecting to the Internet using data, even though it could connect to the wi fi if needed.

It shouldn't be doing this unless your WiFi is switching off by itself during the night.

 

To ensure you don't waste data then switch of mobile data during the night, that way if you lose your WiFi connection it can't then use up your mobile data until you switch the data back on again, or just use WiFi till not required.

My understanding is that wifi is disabled when the handset screen is off, just to save battery.
