    So i was checking out the changes in CYDIA and came across a rather awesome SBSETTINGS mod!
    Its called KEEPAWAKE. What is basically does is that it keeps your WIFI on even if you switch off your screen.
    Its very helpful if u wanna download big files off CYDIA and dont wanna risk the problem of burnt/stuck pixels...
    Also its very helpful for people with PUSH mail. Now my ipod is just like a blackberry! Always online!!

    Also very helpful for people using c******* or dtunes.

    NOTE: I am in no way related to the developer. I just found this in CYDIA.
    hope this helps!

    If the wifi is on throughout the night, YES it suck battery juice. Its pretty useful if ur expecting a mail via push and keep it on for like an hour.
    And it has a toggle in sbsettings. You can switch on/off the mod whenever you like.
    and the mod will only work if you have wifi switched on. If u are going somewhere just switch off the wifi and the mod is plain useless!

    I download keepawake, but it doesn't show up in sbsettings
    however, i already have 4 icons, brightness, processes, SSH, wi-fi
    is that the reason why?

    You have to first enable it in the toggles menu. I think it's because of 4 icons already placed there. Try to remove one of them which u don't need too often like brightness

    Nice, I was using insomnia for a while, but a toggle in SBS is way better

    I use a 1G iPod Touch and I downloaded KeepAwake. After a day my text in my Lockscreen, SBSettings, and Backgrounder became hopelessly garbled. After having to respring about every hour to fix it (or reboot every three-ish) I was getting very frustrated. I looked through the packages that I had recently downloaded from Cydia, and the only one I downloaded in a while was KeepAwake. I uninstalled it and so far my problem is solved...

    I don't mean to keep people away from KeepAwake, just tell my experience. (idk if anyone else has had this problem)
