Default Decreasing the WiFi sleep interval on ICS?

Back on Froyo and GB, you were able to add/edit the wifi_idle_ms string in order to change the value of how quickly the WiFi radio would go to sleep after the display turns off. However, modifying the same string (/datadata/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db in the secure table) under ICS doesn't appear to have the same effect. WiFi remains connected for the default 15 minutes even after the screen is turned off.

Is there any working fix for this?

Please don't create double post about the same issue.

If you don't read the forum, why should the forum read you?

My post in Q/A is a completely separate issue.
My post in SlimICS was to ask if anyone else had the same problem (if it's a known issue).
My post here is asking if anyone has an alternate method of achieving this.

But your condescension and insight is greatly appreciated

Refer to your other thread. As b-eock said, do not double post. In addition, this thread is a question, which is properly placed in Q&A, not in General.
