Here is what Samsung Tech Support found:
Original Problem:
TECHNICAL INQUIRY - POWER - POWER CYCLE

Problem found:
WON'T DOWNLOAD SW/PRL

Solution:
S/W UPDATED - PASSED ALL FUNCTIONAL TESTING UPDATED WITH NEW SOFTWARE

The Tech admitted that there is a bug in 2.3.6, and tried to explain the correlation between the phone continuously doing a PRL update search and why it only happens when WiFi was on (my interpretation of the conversation)
Not sure what all of the above meant but it appears that a fix is forthcoming for this bug. I should have my GS2 back on Wednesday so I will keep everyone posted.
