    I turned Autobrightness off anyways, as my sensor is blocked/covered by my leather case....

    I was consistently having trouble re-acquiring my wifi connection at home after using the sleep button. Since turning off the auto sensor, not a problem.

    Turning off auto-brightness was a huge improvement for me too! I totally could not start a Netflix movie on my iPad (but Netflix worked great on my MacBook on the same wifi network) until I turned off auto-brightness. Now Netflix works fine on the iPad.

    Autobrightness never seemed to work anyway, so I'm happy to turn it off.

    I read about this before and was having connections issue up north, I turned of auto brightness and set to full brightness and didn't have any further issues. But since then I have enjoyed the iPad more being at full brightness all the time. The only times I want it dimmer is when reading and the brightness controls are right there and any changes you make there are only temporary. Heck, I no longer see the need for additional brightness controls now.

    Also if you have SBSettings installed on your JB iPad you can just swipe the status bar and they pop up.

    Good to know - I was about to JB mine, but then I thought about the problems I have running beta 4.0 on my iPhone, granted the latest is pretty decent, but not as reliable as the fully tested software.

    Haven't had a single reliability issue.

    Is yours a WiFi or 3G, Matthew?
    I'm about to try the JB just for the SNES simulator.
