I'm using ES Explorer to copy files from LAN to Local. If it's a large transfer that will likely run past the time when I allow the phone to sleep, there seems to be a good chance that the transfer will break and the transfer in the notification area just stops. I can't remove it, and the transfer icon in the notification bar continues to be animated. Force stopping ES Explorer gets rid of the transfer.

How can I prevent large transfers from breaking? I'm using GNex / ICS / Android 4.0.1. I don't recall having this problem with ES Explorer on my Legend 2.2 or CM7

If you still have this problem: Have you set your Wifi to turn off when the display is turned off (Wifi policy in Wifi extended settings)? If so, may be switching this to "never" could help. – Izzy Aug 26 '12 at 18:40
Yep I have Keep Wifi on during sleep selected. Thanks for trying though :) – DanH Aug 27 '12 at 9:53
You're welcome! So in this case it might be worth contacting the developers of EStrong. They are usually quite responsive -- and should at least have an idea. Especially force-stopping should not be the only solution (this could be consider a bug, as the app is "hanging"). – Izzy Aug 27 '12 at 10:46
