Action Taken:
1. Settings
2. Wireless and Network
3. Wifi Settings
4. Click Menu Button (next to Home Button) and Select Advanced
5. Select Wi-Fi sleep policy
6. Change it from "Never" to either "Never when plugged in" or "When Screen turns off".
Mine have ALWAYS been set to that, even on my Captivate. No, it does NOT fix the problem. You have to actively turn OFF WiFi and turn it back on, when you need it.

P.S. Keep up the Tweets. They're WORKING!
