Tried that, made no difference. Search for fix my wifi still gives nothing. Now that I found that other app it seems to be doing the job nicely of holding onto the wifi during sleep. I tested it for 16 hours straight on sleep the whole time and my ebuddy maintained the AIM and MSN connections the whole time. Previously they'd be dropped after anything from 30-90 minutes of sleep.

I can never know now I could try uninstalling wifi buddy now that it's set to never sleep, but it's working and I don't want to do things that might stop it working.

If you have an instant messenger app running (making you contactable to your IM buddies) it's severely impaired functionality to lose that connection while the screen is taking a rest. Maybe ebuddy doesn't send/receive data on a frequent enough basis when no chats are in progress and that's why it gets dropped. Either way, I'm happy now with my wifi-keeping app

It's possible that during those weeks where it worked, it coincided with me not switching the phone off at all during that time. One off/on cycle and wifi buddy loses the plot

edit: update, looks like paypal will be an option in Q2 sometime.
EDIT2: it seems that wifi buddy holds onto the connection better when I have ebuddy (IM app) running. I'd not started ebuddy the last couple of days and it was only the last couple of days I was losing my wifi connection every time the phone slept. I hadn't spotted the connection between them. Now I'm back keeping ebuddy running it seems that wifi buddy has a reason to live.
Oh well. Happy again :D

Okay. I have only used one WiFi as my connection which is my Home WiFi. It is a linksys WiFi G 2.4 GHZ router with WPA/WPA2 PSK being used by my Home WiFi.
My Nexus one doesn't receive any notificatios as soon as the screen auto locks itself.
I'll be testing on other WiFi connections and will post soon.
PS : No issues with the 3G/Edge data.
Update - My university's wifi also gives the same issue.
I have seen people using Desire's ROM on N1 and having no issues.
Is it the firmware issue? I have a phone swap ticked from HTC but I wonder if it will help, if it's something with the firmware.
