From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen.

Don’t Sleep Utility
Windows Mobile phones have a very useful power saving feature, when your device is in sleep mode, your wifi is turned off.
This new tool puts a stop to this feature by keeping your device from going to sleep. The tool is made for people that need something done on their device, but can’t get it done because it keeps going to sleep. This application keeps the device screen on and active until you turn it off by clicking the close button.

Ever got frustrated when you are connected to Wifi and you get disconnected because your device goes to sleep mode? Then this application is for you.
Just launch DontSleep and either click on CLOSE to exit the application or HIDE to use it.
DontSleep Wifi will automatically turn on your wifi while preventing your device from going into sleep mode.
Continue on to the application thread.
