Is there a way to maintain an edge or wifi connection while the phone is idle? I was hoping to use beejiveIM and backgrounder to keep a constant connection to AIM so that I'd be notified whenever an IM arrives. It works for a little while, but soon after the phone idles, the wifi or edge shuts off and I don't receive any new messages till I interact with the phone in some way. Is there a cydia tool or setting that allows you to maintain a constant connection despite the phone locking or going idle, or is this just a pipe dream for now.

Thanks
