Losing wifi while in sleep mode

    I've got Sirius Satellite radio on my phone, which requires my wifi connection, but as soon as my Droid goes into sleep mode, it disconnects from my wifi network. Is there any way to prevent this, other than turning sleep mode off? I'd like it to stay logged in even while the phone is in sleep mode if possible...

    Thanks in advance. Phone is an LG.

    Do you have any task killers on anything to save battery life

    In your WiFi settings, go to Advanced and change the WiFi sleep policy to never turn off WiFi.

    Thanks! I didn't even know there was an Advanced wifi settings tab. Duh...

    Oh, here's another quick question... any idea why this app (or maybe it's the phone itself) is so quiet when plugged into my stereo? I've got the stereo cranked to max, the media volume on the phone cranked to max... It's barely half as loud as my stereo is capable of. I'm using a headphone jack to component (red and white) converter. I use the same thing with the headphone jack on my laptop and that works fine, it's good and loud.
