Default [Q] Is my WiFi always on?

I'm starting to second guess my self here and thinking I've been reading the battery stats all wrong this whole time. The WiFi bar is consistently full and blue when my WiFi is off. Does this mean my WiFi is always on?

Yes it is. Go to the wifi settings and change "Scanning always available"
