How do I keep my wi-fi on in sleep mode

It seems to me that the wifi on my phone goes off when the screen gets locked. That way it's not syncing and I don't get notifications. Can this be changed so that it stays on all the time except when you manualy turn it off?

(htc hero, android2.2)

thank you

Yes. Settings -> Wireless and network -> WiFi settings -> (menu button) Advanced -> Wifi sleep policy -> Never
