    When the Ziio goes to standby it drops wi-fi. Now, on my Android handset I simply had to change the option within the Advanced wi-fi settings to keep the wi-fi alive. Sadly, that's not worked on the Ziio.

    Does anybody know of a way to achieve this or is it a simple fact that the Ziio will drop wi-fi when in standby (which makes downloading podcasts automatically a bit difficult!).

    Yep. That's the one I've set. But I turn the Ziio back on from standby and there's no wifi - I have to wait for it to reconnect.

    i have a ziio 7 inch. It gives me the same problem. I have tried multiple apps like wifi lock etc but none seem to work. What i do now is, under the "sounds and display" settings I put screen timeout to infinite and then run the clock app and dim the screen. That way I can keep my wifi connected and listen to Pandora.

    Maybe try this app (modified from http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/coby-tablets/6763-wifi-auto-negotiate.html#post40503 )

    You can setup something with Setting Profiles Full - Android app on AppBrain
    or http://www.appbrain.com/app/setting-...z.liteprofiles

    Market search for 'Setting Profiles Lite', and install it

    Setup a profile by hitting the menu button and choosing add profile. Name it whatever you want. Put a star beside wifi, and check it.

    Next, go to the rules tab and hit menu and create a rule for screen off (choose screen on, and check inverse). Add an action to 'Activate profile', and choose the profile you just made.

    Hey guys, I've made a free app that should provide a fix (more of a workaround!) for this problem, it stops the device from sleeping if you have wifi on, and turn the screen off.

    I would be interested to know if it works on the Ziio.

    The ZiiO doesn't have Market access. Are you able to provide or point us to an APK file that we can download?

    It works! Feel free to add the ZiiO to your list of successful Android devices!

    I'm about to publish a review of the ZiiO and will publish a link to your app as part of it.

    Again - congratulations!
