I had an old (but much loved) HTC Desire in a drawer at home and thought I'd try let it serve as a Spotify Connect device attached to my Hifi. With the new Spotify Connect feature you can remotely connect to and control another device on your network to play music - perfect for me - without needing to buy a pricey new receiver with the feature built in!

It works remarkably well, much better than DLNA from my HTC One, with one caveat: after a period of inactivity it no longer shows up in the list of Connect devices in Spotify and I need to physically switch the screen on and select the Spotify app from the task list.

It's running CM 7.1 and turned Wifi power saving off in Wifi advanced settings.

Any idea what else I could do to force it out of any power saving mode, seeing as it's connected to mains at all times?

I plan to do this exact same thing when I finally get spotify connect (phased rollout is so annoying)

are you leaving the screen on?
