This simple app can help you increase the standby time of your device: WiFi Automatic automatically disable your WiFi radio when you don't need it and thereby lowers the battery consumption.
It is designed to be used with WiFi-only* tablets - these devices normally don't require a constant internet connection if you're not using them and turning WiFi off can save a lot of battery power.

You can also specify to automatically turn on WiFi again, if you turn on your device. Also, the app can regularly scan for available networks to connect to and re-disable WiFi if no suitable network is found. This way, you are always connected to your WiFi network when using the device.

This app has a similiar effect like setting the "WiFi sleep policy" in Android to "always", except that you can now exactly define the timeout between turning the screen off and actually turning off WiFi.

* if your device has a cell radio, it might switch to 2G/3G which may consume more power then staying on WiFi

The app is open source: https://github.com/j4velin/WiFi-Automatic

    One thing that bugs me about this is that WiFi always disables itself when screens off and ignores the settings i set Update: WiFi still turns off instantly, instead of waiting 5 mins when screen is off

    Only 2 features are missing: 1.I would love to be able to set the Wifi on interval in minutes and not hours. The second missing feature is a "disable" button. Sometimes I just don't want the app to do anything, and there is no easy way to disable it. The only way is to un-check all the menu options. It's not that hard, but it could be easier. Will vote 5 stars once the minutes thing is fixed ;)
