I’ve heard that some people are misunderstanding the timeout option, so by default it’s now disabled. The free verison does not have a time limit on how long it will keep the connection alive.

There’s also some minor UI changes.

Android market users should use the Market to update, non-market users may use this link.


This app is designed to fix the problem where Wifi becomes disabled every time you turn the screen off.

Advanced Wifi Lock prevents your phone from sleeping whenever wifi is enabled and you turn your screen off, which allows Wifi to stay connected. This method should work for any Android device.

Confirmed working on the ZTE Blade/Orange San Francisco, Creative Ziio, Nook Color.

Other Features:
• Optional timeout so you don’t accidentally leave the phone awake for too long
• Ability to automatically disable wifi if you get disconnected from your wireless Access point (e.g. out of range)
No ads!
Full Version Includes:
• Widget to quickly enable/disable
• Customisable timeout

Please Note: This app uses a wake-lock to prevent the phone from sleeping, leaving the phone in a wake-state for too long will use excessive battery power.
