Wifi Draining Battery Problem

The wifi on my galaxy s is draining my battery at an alarming rate.
With wifi on it drained about 30% in 5 hours :( ,if i turn wifi off it uses about 2% in 5 hours.
I have noticed that if i go into settings/wireless and network/wifi settings/and turn on wifi and also turn off network notifications it still says it is scanning very few seconds where the wifi networks bar is at the bottom of the menu.
I think that this scanning is whats causing the battery drain,so how can i stop the scanning ?,it is already connected to my wifi network at home,so it shouldnt be scanning if i have network notifications disabled..should it ? thanks
