I am currently waiting the arrival of my Nexus 10 32gb and was looking up anti-thief apps and came across Cerberus. I have a couple questions about it, I've read it's mostly for android phone's but was wondering how would it work for a tablet. The main things are, does the Nexus 10 stay connected via wifi in sleep mode? Sense you can't use the sms commands for that app and would only be able to send commands through their website. If your wifi is off or it's not connect it just seems like that app would be useless. Does anyone use this app? How does it work for you? What app do you prefer for anti-thief?

I have it on my phone and tablet, and am thankful I've never had to use it, at least when not playing with it.
Its a WiFi and GPS tablet, so SMS is out of the question. However it needs to be connected to at least a WiFi, for you to locate or send commands to it, of any kind. When you ask for GPS location, and signal is sent through WiFi, then activates the devices GPS, so you can view where your tablet is at.
The app is useless is device is off, or not connected to the internet. However, its the best tool out there, short of beating down the burglar's door and taking it back.

Thanks for your reply, I found that out after doing some more digging. I know all they have to do is turn it off (hoping they wouldn't because of the beautiful display lol) either way it's better to have something just in case.
Edit: I have another question. If you always have your wifi on (even in sleep mode), how much more power will it use vs turning wifi off during sleep?
