Angry WiFi Sharing When Sleeping

Please Login to Remove!

If my playbook is sleeping or hasn't been used for a period of time (say 5 minutes) I've noticed that if I try to ping the device or connect to the wifi share I'm unable to do so. The only way I can connect is to go to the playbook, open the browser and go to a web page. As soon as I do that the device responds to pings and the wifi share connection works.

Anybody else have this issue? It happens on both playbooks we are trialing in our office so I don't believe its a hardware issue on the device.

Default Re: WiFi Sharing When Sleeping

I have had no issues connecting via WiFi even my PB has not been used in 5 minutes or so. After the initial connection mind you. Sleeping or on Standby, it should still work.
