    Hmm, I would try this:

    Settings > Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi settings > Menu > Advanced > Wi-Fi sleep policy > set to NEVER, hit Menu, hit save

    Default policy is to turn the Wi-Fi off when the screen turns off. *3G is actually said to suck more power than WiFi. So there's no sense in turning the Wi-Fi off when the screen is sleeping, especially if you are mostly in a Wi-Fi area.

    Thanks but thats not what im looking for i mean bugless beast has a built in task killer which kills all my currently running apps when the screen is off after a while which pisses me off. Wont switch roms because its so good but just wanted to know if anyone else could help.
