Running Nookie Froyo off of SD and having an issue with the market. Apps sit there and says "Downloading" and never go anywhere. The notifications bar will show it crawling along as far as total percent goes. Rebooted and no change.

Seems like it could be a wifi issue, I've had issues with it not holding the wifi after waking up from sleep.

Any ideas?

Well, for one, there's SoftLocker to keep WiFi going even when it sleeps. That helped a lot of my Market download issues because, yes, WiFi turns off and it seems that the Market has some issues recovering from a lost connection.

The Froyo SD installation instructions, and others, have mentioned that Market downloads seem a bit laggy. They do eventually get there, particularly if you use SoftLocker, set a higher timeout, or just fiddle with the screen to make sure the NC doesn't take a nap.

You could also verify you are signed in to Google Talk. Sounds strange, but this solved my NC Marketplace issues last night.
