    Other than the Insomnia tweak, is there another tweak that keeps your wifi connected when it's locked and on battery?

    As was discussed here: Waking the device: cellular vs wifi - Wifi isn't really disconnected when a device is locked - it's in a "hot standby" and is not a bug - it's a feature designed to help save battery.

    I have the same question.

    Please don't tell me that it's not a bug or how it is saving my battery. I am not complaining about this feature, I just need to find a way round it. I want my phone to sleep and stay connected to the wifi.

    My best answer so far is to tune into a radio station using a radio app. Because it keeps streaming, the wifi is left on. However, something like an incoming call will probably switch off the app, so it's only a partial solution.
