iPad with Skype problem

I have a Mini iPad and my husband a newish standard size. Both have been upgraded to IOS 8.1.2. Since the upgrade Skype does not stay signed in when iPad is in sleep mode so doesn't wake-up the iPad if someone calls. In fact, even opening Skype and keeping the iPad open, Skype often signs out and without constantly checking, you are not aware of this. I have read various opinions about this problem, but no one seems to have an answer that works. Do you use Skype on your iPad, if so, can you offer any advice.

Skype never signs itself out on our OS computers. This makes me think it is IOS that could be the problem.
