    I've noticed recently when I take my D1 off of the home dock in the morning, that the wifi has turned itself on. Has anyone else noticed this? Any idea what's causing this?

    I would check what applications you have installed as some have the feature to turn on or off wifi, and might be doing this as a result of being in the home dock.

    I can't think of any apps that turn wifi on or off.

    I've started having the same issue last Friday.. I don't have epoc installed or any other that I would think would turn on wifi. I even did a hard reset and it's still doing it.
