Is this something which could be supported by now?

gnome-control-center -> power seems to offer a setting to manage wi-fi
power saving but in the end this is just a wi-fi on/off switch which
immediately brings the device down/up (bug 1751954).

Looking through the details of an existing NM wireless configuration profile 
there are no related (power saving) features exposed on the GUI. "nmcli 
connection show $UUID" lists a 
   802-11-wireless.powersave (default: 0)

Is this what brings the interface down after some ~ 10 minutes of user
input inactivity / ~ 5 minutes of blank screen? If so, could this be
exposed on the GUI?

  networking eventually brought down due to inactivity

Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  For various reasons, I like to be able to ssh in to my nexus 4. I have
  noticed with current saucy (and raring before it), after some time of
  inactivity the screen goes blank (fine), but then occasionally after
  some more time after that, networking is brought down (wifi) if there
  is no network activity. If I continuously ping the device, networking
  stays up. If I keep the screen from blanking, networking stays up. The
  current behavior is different than the behavior on android, where I
  can get various notifications for facebook, email, etc when the screen
  is blank.
