    Hi all.

    I regularly charge my phone overnight and always have every possible sych set to manual so I only update exactly whe I want to. However, when I wake up I find that the wifi has swithched itself on. I am thinking that I have an update turned on somewhere but cannot think which one it might be.

    Is this auto turn on wifi enabled from some other kind of process?

    Also, as you might have tried this, what is the concensus of the following method of charging the battery:

    I use Tasker to switch wifi on/off,

    The way it works is, if the screen is off so is wifi and when I switch my phone on wifi switches on.

    Do you have juicedefender/ultimatejuice installed? That has features that can auto enable wifi too.

    Hi,

    Don't have juicedefender/ultimatejuice installed.

    Although Tasker looks good, I wonder if it effects battery usage as at a guess it would have to be operating in the background waiting for certain triggers. I'm on a mission at the mo to get at least a days worth of medium usage out of desire. Possibly worth trying out though, feck it, I'll give it a go.

    Cheers. :9)

    I guess you could use Timerific to disable it before you sleep and then re-enable it when you get up again?

    That's currently what I do.

    Is there no way to simply turn off WiFi by default? I am about to get a Desire and this is kind of important.

    There is, all you need to do is click on the HTC widget, or go to the settings section.
    @OP check your apps to see if any have access to Wifi enabled services, if they do, then uninstall them.
    Also, the 'Network Notification' should also be unchecked. :)
