My wifi comes back ON automatically, why?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, once I turn OFF wifi on my SP5m, it sometimes comes back ON automatically, even though all my "internet applications" are shutdown/closed. It's as if an internet connection would still be needed somewhere on the phone?!... but once I turn it OFF again, it stays OFF this time! Why would it do that? How can I make sure it stays OFF once I actually turn it OFF?

Thanks all

FYI, I'm also using WM6 (perfect english edition), anyone else has such a bug? It's a pain because I always have to double-check that wifi is OFF before putting away my phone, otherwise it reconnects to my wifi network and drains my battery ;)

I don't know why it switches itself on either but you can enable your phone to automatically disconnect WLAN after a variable time once your backlight goes off.

Settings>Connections>Wifi Settings>Power Management.
