DontSleep Wifi

This little application won't allow your Pocket PC to go to sleep.

Ever got frustrated when you are connected to Wifi and you get disconnected because your device goes to sleep mode? Then this application is for you.

Just launch DontSleep and either click on CLOSE to exit the application or HIDE to use it.


DontSleep Wifi will automatically turn on your wifi while preventing your device from going into sleep mode.

Thank you! I need this as my device disconnects to wifi when going to sleep (battery mode)

Keep creating useful apps! :)

Thanks oldSAP, however, my problem is that although I *do* want WiFi to turn off automatically (to save battery), when it does reconnect, it may not always detect my home network first (shows up as unavailable) and instead it shows a list of other networks in the neighborhood ("Multiple Networks Detected"). Now here's the weird part: If I go to "WiFi Settings, even if my home network is shown as "Unavailable", I can force it to connect by right click - Connect!

Another issue is, is there any way to automatically turn on WiFi at startup, or do you know of any program that can toggle the wifi? I've tried a few but they don't seem to work for my phone. (Like CommManager, the applets in Home2, etc)

Thanks, and great blog you have here :)

thanks dexter,
you may want to try to create a shortcut link file of DontSleep to the startup folder so that your wifi will turn on after boot up (hopefully it works)

Hi, will it not consume much of your battery life if you put it your startup? thanks

Thank you very much for this app. So simple and very useful.

It works perfectly on my HTC Touch HD.

I just have one small issue: when I click on "close", it refuses to close.

Do you know how I could solve this issue ?

Thanks oldSAP for the app. As the previous poster, I'd like to playing around with writing a Windows mobile application, and am wondering if you can open the source code for this app.
