Default Wifi constantly turns on.

Constantly have wifi turning on.

Have not updated to KK and have just been bypassing the install. Not rooted or anything, completely stock. Started happening a week or so ago and my apps automatically update through google play. Is there any ideas?

I've checked/unchecked/rechecked every single option in wifi/data/network that may pertain to keeping the wifi on. None of them have worked and it still does it. Is there any way to figure out what app is ticking wifi on and off through a log file or anything?

Check your GPS settings, set them to GPS only. If there's an app that use an active GPS for location services, and GPS is set to WiFi + GPS, it turns on the WiFi.

As for auto updating apps, you can disable that in Google Play's settings. (Which does mean you need to update them manually).

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
