Thank you for posting.
I'm unable to reproduce this behavior. I hosted a small database through FileMaker Pro, disabled the auto-lock feature on the iPad, connected to the database via FileMaker Go and let it sit for approximately 30 mins without a disconnect.
You mentioned that the host computer is connected via Wifi. Would you be willing to test it with the host connected through a wired connection? Wifi can sometimes be unreliable for hosting purposes.
Thanks for the quick response! I will try using wired connection, although if it's because wifi is unreliable for hosting then that sort of defeats the whole point of having an iPad (i.e. being able to walk around with it). If that is the case, what would you suggest?
Wait, never mind. I just re-read your post more carefully, and you were suggesting that I connect the HOST computer through a wired connection, not the iPads. That is much more feasible as a solution. I will try and let you know if it works!
