    Which task handles the WiFi connection?

    I have Task Manager installed and I suspect that particular task is in the Task Manager's auto kill list. Because whenever I press the the power key to go into sleep mode the WiFi icon disappears.

    I disabled Task Manager to test that scenario, sure enough the WiFi icon still there when I get in and out of sleep mode.

    can anyone tell me which task handles the WiFi connection so I can add that to the ignore list in Task Manager.


    *** update
    found the solution...
    . go to settings
    . wireless controls
    . wi-fo settings
    . menu -> advanced
    . wi-fi sleep policy -> this default to 'when screen turns off', select 'never'

    this allows your wifi never goes to sleep until you manually turn off wifi
