Sometimes when I leave home I forget to turn my WiFi off and it keeps connecting to any open networks wherever i go. I went into the WiFi settings and there are only a few options there and I tried all different combos but i still keep auto connecting. What am I missing?

Under WiFi settings, goto Advanced, and uncheck "Scanning Always Available", by default this is on, even when WiFi is off.

I think I misunderstood your question...if it's actually connecting to the network, it's because at some point you've connected to it before and it's a saved network. Next time it connects to it, go to WiFi settings and forget the network.
