    Why won't my wi-fi stay connected after about 5 minutes of the screen being locked? It will come back only after I go into the settings and just look at it, don't have to select anything.

    Have you set it to not sleep?

    HomeScreen->Menu->Settings->Wireless&Networks->Wi-Fi settings->Menu->Advanced->Wi-Fi Sleep Policy...

    Wow, I never knew there was an advanced option. Thank you, that should take care of it.
