    Welcome to Android Central! Go to your system settings and search for "wi-fi scanning" (if your system settings have a search option). It's part of the Location settings, so if you don't have a search option, go to Settings>Location and look for Improve Location Accuracy, or tap Menu and look for a Scanning option. Turn off wi-fi scanning when you find it.

    It's showing that it was on at one time and consumed some power. That's going to stay there until you charge the phone again.

    But it might be that older-style battery graph with the bar at the bottom showing when wi-fi was on or off. If it's a solid bar going all the way across while the actual wi-fi toggle was off, that could be due to wi-fi scanning.

    True - but that would be while the user was on that page - wifi is not supposed to scan at any other time if scanning is turned off (unless an app turns it on - Smart WiFi Toggler may).

    If scanning is turned off, right -- but if the wi-fi scanning option is turned on, is the wi-fi radio kept on at some low level so that it can always be looking for a wi-fi network to get location data? Or is that only supposed to be intermittent? My understanding is that if wi-fi scanning is on, that means the wi-fi radio will actually show up as constantly on in the older battery graph -- even if your wi-fi toggle switch is turned off.
