Sunday 24th of June 2012

Unfortunately unlike earlier Galaxy devices it is not easy to disable fast dormancy, but fortunately @lokhor from AndroidNZ has worked out how to do it (Root required folks). Check out his guide here: AndroidNZ: [At Your Own Risk] How to disable Fast Dormancy on the Galaxy S3I will port this guide to the forum itself when time permits, but it's a substantial amount of work so won't be for a little while [I think the benefits of the guide for forum users affected by the fast dormancy issue outweighs the fact that the guide isn't yet natively hosted on the forum, mods can feel free to remove if they disagree].
