    I just got my skype account on itouch and have paid for the service. have a backgrounding app to run skype in background. my problem is, when i lock my ipod it cuts out wireless and skype. my question is, is there an app that will fake lock it so that the screen just cuts out and is disabled until i click the home button to quit the app and have it go back to the front page? that would solve all my problems and i could finally have an awesome wireless phone.

    Not a fake lock app but:

    Jailbreak > cydia > backgrounder. Runs skype in background, phone rings when you get incoming call, even when phone is asleep. You still need to manually open the app whilst its ringing but its a start.

    halfway there. i have backgrounder. but it doesnt ring when the ipod is locked. thats why i was looking for a fake lock app that could save battery from the screen being off but still have my wireless open if i am around it.

    Get insomnia from Cydia. It's an app that leaves wifi on while it's locked.

    try getting "keep awake" in cydia. Insomnia will drain your battery very fast.
