Default Wifi Won't Go Off !

Hi Folks,

I can't get my Wifi to switch off when the phone goes to sleep. I've gone into advanced and changed the 'keep wifi on during sleep' to never. I also have turned off 'Scanning always available' so apps can't scan but it STILL won't go off when the phone is asleep!! I rarely use my data allowance with my contract so my 3G is always off and I would like my wifi off when I'm not using the phone aswell but just can't get it to go off

Any help appreciated, thanks in advance

Change it to
Keep WiFi of during sleep=always
And
Tick off =scanning always available.
Your Wi-Fi should switch off during screen lock. Don't expect it to turn off immediately though.

As I said in my post it says 'Keep wifi ON during sleep' not OFF ......and I have it set to never which is correct.

Hmmm u r right it says on. What i observed is it takes a bit of time to go off to make sure user is not going to use it soon.
