Default Wifi will not stay off!

When I'm on the road I like to turn wifi off to conserve battery power... It keeps turning itself on! I have the option to notify me of networks disabled...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Had this problem when I first got the phone in July even though I thought I had all wifi buttons off..drove me crazy. I figured out how to put a stop to it since I don't live or work anywhere near wifi and thus, rarely needed it or even miss it.

All of a sudden today, it starts doing the exact same thing without me making any changes!

If you are on the SPRINT network with a Galaxy S3, try this:
(Don't know if the directions are the exact same for an LG Lucid)

Settings-->Wireless and network section-->'Data usage' but click on 'More settings'-->'Mobile networks'-->'Sprint Connections Optimizer'--Remove the check mark that's in the "Automatically select the best mobile network" box.

You can always always reverse this option when/if you want Sprint to auto search for the best wifi in your current area.

I am using Juicedefender to control my data when I am away from a known wifi signal. You can set it to automatically turn data off when you are on a wifi network or when the device is on standby, then when you wake it up, it starts it up. It is usually ready within 3 seconds.
