I have a rooted NookColor. Everytime I put the device to sleep and then unlock the device on the next use, I have to disable the wifi and re-enable it in order to get wifi working again. I've tried downloading the SpareParts app from the Android Market and setting the wifi sleep policy to "never" but it still loses the wifi during sleep. Any suggestions?

Can you set the policy manually? I'm not sure if the Nook has a limited set of settings, but on my Galaxy S you can go to

Settings -> Wireless and network -> Wifi settings -> (Menu button) Advanced

and set it there.

It isn't built into the settings, but I can change it via the Spare Parts app to "Never" and it still cuts off. – Bryan Denny Jan 4 '11 at 19:12
Hmm. I'm just wondering if everything in that app necessarily works on your device. Probably hard to verify. – Matthew Read Jan 4 '11 at 19:26
Actually, it might have been because I enabled ad-hoc, I must have missed the part where it kills the wifi on sleep: – Bryan Denny Jan 4 '11 at 22:01

Issue only happens when ad-hoc is enabled. See here for more info:
