    Okay, i know there are a couple of similar threads before this,
    but the ipod i have atm is a brand new ipod touch 4...

    whenever my ipod autolocks after 2 mins, my wifi disconnects when i unlock it. The wifi icon is still there, but my IM apps like beejive and nimbuzz disconnects. Also when i try to load pages in safari, it says 'safari could not open the page because the server stopped responding'
    The only way i could connect back is either to renew lease in network settings or wait for 5 minutes for the IM apps to connect to the wifi again...

    i thought os4.1 says wifi doesnt disconnect when asleep? my push notification is on, and also idle settings for beejive is set at 12 hours. I tried resetting network settings to default but still the same.
    Anyone facing similar problems? anyone knows how to fix this?

    and i dont think theres a problem with the router wifi since my laptop doesnt disconnects then..

    I have this same problem. It's also why the iPod doesn't die so fast.

    but it is a problem when you want your IM apps to be on and receive messages when the ipod autolocks/sleeps

    You can fix it with Insomia from Cydia once 4.1 or 4.2 or 5.0 are released and jailbroken.

    Haha, yeah. I meant when it comes out and it is jailbroken. Sorry for the wording. I'll go back and fix that. I'm sorry.

    No, it's not out. I meant that when it is out and it does in fact, become jailbroken. My wording was bad, my mistake man.

    any apps that do that without the need for jailbreak? I'd still like to keep my warranty..
    And seems like only a few people have this problem? could it be a defect on our side?
