This Mod is working perfect on my S3 Stock ICS.
I used to have a clumsy semi effective workaround with Tasker using macros to imitate button pushes. I abandoned that long ago. But this mod works great. Now Tasker can easily disable/enable Location preference at screen off/on without that daft popup consent notification.
Thanks MohammadAG

Love this!!!
I find that having "Use Wireless Networks" causes a lot of NLP collector wakelocks, but I like using the functionality of Google Now and other apps that could utilize the network location.
I set up a Tasker Profile so that when I open Google Now, it enables the wireless network location. (normally that would make a prompt show up every time I open up google now, but this removes the prompt and makes it all work amazingly well.
Thanks a lot!!

What would be even better is if you were able to disable the background location polling...

NlpCollectorWakelock causes so much battery drain on my device (even though I don't have any apps that use network location in the background, this is strictly Google building out its databases) that I have to keep network location turned off.

Your module saves us from having to tap to agree when we turn it back on (or saves writing a Tasker script to do it automatically), but a fix for the underlying problem would be even better

Is this module enabled (and have you rebooted)?

EDIT: Disregard this, I confused this thread with another.
How does it not work? This mod only maximizes your lockscreen widgets, similar to what would happen if you drag it downwards. Isn't that happening? Can you post a screenshot right after you turn your screen on?
