    I have a hidden wireless signal (SSID) at home, with no wireless security.

    Although it is easy enough to add a hidden network by entering the name in the "Other" field, the iPhone refuses to automatically connect everytime I am within range. In fact, it disconnects everytime I lock the screen.

    Any tips on keeping the connection active?

    I did not have this problem earlier when i used my iPhone under firmware 1.1.1 and 1.1.3. But since i upgraded to 1.1.4 I have the same problem as you describe (took a restore to 1.1.4. and used ziPhone to unlock/jailbreak). Hidden wireless ssid will not auto connect. Since this worked for me before there should exist a solution to this problem.
