    Got exactly the same problem with the Mobile Network widget on my wife's phone (Slightly worrying if we take the phone abroad and start roaming)

    In the end I gave up trying to fix it and just left it switched on, and then downloaded another widget to override it - Not really a fix, but it seems to have done the trick.

    Maybe you could do the same for WiFi?

    I seem to have resolved the problem by deleting the widget and then reloading again - it now works as it should.

    I have an app called juice defender that turns WiFi off when you switch your phone onto standby and turns it back on again when you turn your phone on. This saves battery and it also does other things to save battery to.
