It's really odd, when i set the "keep wifi on during sleep" to never and turn off the screen till the wifi is off and then turn on the screen again, it says that the wifi is off but the internet is actually working, im even not able to enable/disable the wifi setting when this occurs, i tried resetting my phone but it didnt work? is this a hardware issue? should i take it to store and ask them to fix it (still got a few weeks of my warranty left)?

Is internet connection made by data cell phone? (eg. 3g)
That way you will still have internet, but Wifi is off.

If not, did you try a reboot?
Sometimes the wifi on my device looks 'stuck' too, not being able to change it correctly. After a reboot everything is well then.

if your on 4.3 or 4.4 there is an option "scan for wifi (even when wifi is off). disable that. although im guessing you already have.
2nd bet is Mobile Data... though. if your actually on wifi. go into your router. it will say all the connected users on your wifi.
