    I'm not exactly sure if I'm correct, but on my iPad, the wifi doesn't disconnect after you put it in standby, but the iPhone and iPod touch does. Any cydia apps that will accomplish this?

    Search for 'Insomnia' in Cydia. It will leave the WiFi on even if your iPhone or iPod touch is locked.

    Thanks, I'll look into that. BTW, am I right in saying that the iPad doesn't disconnect the wifi when you put it in standby?

    Not that i know, but would have assumed that it would turn off...otherwise its kinda wasted power (unless you are using it insomnia style for downloads etc)

    It turns off. Insomnia and KeepAwake currently don't work very well in preventing that.
