press the power button one time, it would turn off your screen to save battery life
I am tethering with a Dash 3g and WmWifiRouter in order to connect to 3g via wifi. I find the app keeps my screen on. How can I change this to save battery?
This is a real problem if I want to leave WmWifiRouter on for sporadic Internet access.

you may need some practice for turning off screen. you cannot hold power button ,it would turn off the device , just brief press the power button .
you should be able to read system version from system settings
I am using HTC wifirouter , it works fine when screen is off.
you may try it
CoolPhone, I tried to send you a private message, but I get the error "CoolPhone has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space."
I was wondering if you could take a look at my post immediately above.

Actually, I am using HTC wifirouter which was pulled off from other HTC devices, I cooked into my customized ROM, it responses screen off button.

I can share the HTC wifirouter OEM pack (to cook rom), but not for installation.
get into xda-developers to see 3G dash cooking menus ...

@ tmotk, T-Mo Dash 3g runs Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.x Standard, aka SmartPhone edition. HTC WiFi Router will not work on this platform as it was written for Microsoft Windows Mobile PPC Edition.
As far as using WMWiFi Router, Version 1.35 will turn the display off. Also I thought I read on the WMWiFi Router web site that the latest versions do give you that option in program settings. Read the (Change Log) and (FAQ) @ web site.
Another app that worked well on the Dash 3g, (does what you want) was "Walking HotSpot"
Remember you need to use apps built for the Windows Mobile Standard platform (Non Touch Screen). Some apps may work cross platform, most do not
