    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.

    Using BB 1.0 with Wireless Tether right now with the screen off. No issues with it at all.
