    Prior to 2.2, Y5 managed my wifi connection pretty accurately. The wifi would be OFF until in a known area and then it would flip on and connect. Now, the wifi is on all of the time, even if I'm not connected to a wifi network. It still connects when I'm in a known network area, but I can't understand why it stays on ALL OF THE TIME now...

    Anybody else? The reason I installed Y5 was to save battery, but not sure that's happening anymore if the wifi is on 100% of the time.

    Please be aware that you will see constant disconnects when attempting to launch your 3G mobile hotspot with the Y5 battery saver app installed.

    You must uninstall the app (don't just kill the PID) if you intend to use the mobile hotspot.

    Confirmed!
