So I got tired of turning my WiFi off manually to save internet usage. (Satellite internet limitations are awful) I looked for an app that did what I wanted but couldn't find one so I created an application in Tasker. When it runs, it turns off the WiFi while the screen is off. Hope it helps somebody else as it has me.

I uploaded a screenshot below.

this feature is stock on all androids. it located under wifi/avanced wifi/ keep wifi on during sleep. it just needs to be set to "never" or "only when plugged in."

I realize this. However, I wanted something that was a bit easier to toggle as I only wanted it to be on part of the time.
