    On 4.0.1, wifi would stay on even after locking the device, but that doesn't seem like the case for 4.1, any fixes ?

    Try insomnia, get it off cydia. I don't think wifi should stay connected anyway, at least my 4.0 device doesn't.

    It stayed connected all the time on 4.0, 4.1 fixes that.
  5. Insomnia is only for <4.0

    I prefer wifi always on because at my university we need to login every single time. It's a big pita. Any other fixes/alternatives? I couldn't sworn the always on wifi was a feature of iOS 4...

    Keep wifi on iPad iPhone etc

    Download and enable backgrounder. Goto settings. Select wifi. After your device has found and connected to a router enable backrounder and exit settings. This should keep wifi on being that your settings are open in the background and cintinually finding your router. Hope this helps.

    I don't know if it's just me, but I'm on 4.1 and have wifi while locked...I just had it locked earlier and could still ssh into it...

    Turn off auto lock and leave it on the lockscreen.

    Pro = Wifi doesnt go off Con = Invest in 6 backup batteries
