No, it was on LAN, just wifi, on the router that doesn't have any sleep actions engaged (i.e. it's on always). I'll give it another shot -- I think it was in one of the directories with long list of filenames.
Other than that, I use "Toggle SSH" app for turning sshd on and off. I'll check SBSettings, though.
Captain's log, supplemental.
It appears the sshd does stop working a few minutes after iPad turns itself off. I didn't really check the timing, but WinSCP reported that the connection was closed.
The log is e.g.:
After I chose to reconnect, it would just wait (or eventually time-out); and a second or two after pressing the Home button to turn the iPad on again, the connection would be established again.Waiting for data timed out, asking user what to do.
Host is not communicating for 15 seconds.
Wait for another 15 seconds? ()
Data has arrived, closing query to user.
Network error: Software caused connection abort

Error changing directory to '.....'.
(I now use SBSettings toggle, and I've uninstalled "Toggle SSH" app.)
