It had me wondering if my phone was faulty. I see that is not the case.
Actually, I just asked a buddy of mine that's all about iOS. They do the same thing. They power off the WiFi when there are no applications using it.

Also remember, Apple devices still don't do true multi-tasking (It's more of an emulated on iOS 4), and they don't have dualCore CPU's in the phones. So, yeah, they don't have to manage their battery as much as the real smartphones do.

It's not a problem for my nephew's toy phone to stay on when he's not playing with it either. That goes for the one he had from Hasbro as a baby, and the iPhone 4 he uses now that he's 21. Both are toys.
