    Thanks for letting me know about this. I was wondering why when I download things sometimes they are just not there. Though I think you should have mentioned what the wifi sleep problem is in the article.

    Wifi should not shut down while you are downloading a file just because the screen is turned off, however the hack only allows you to choose to turn off wifi when 1) screen turns off 2) never or 3) when not plugged in.  I wonder if one of the Android apps for controlling configs might work on the Fire.

      No it happens with many devices ─ WiFi just turns off to save battery when in sleep mode. I’ve had this issue with both of my phones ─ SE Xperia Arc and Galaxy S, but you’re right about some Apps available in the Market (I don’t remember the Apps’ name) but it did help with the Galaxy S. So they may also work on KF.

    It seems like the Kindle Fire is a good device for the most part but it still seems to have lots of bugs.
