    As per the title, my Wi-Fi always seems to stay on, even during Airplane mode. I always put my phone in Airplane mode at night, and from the attached screenshot of battery usage, it's clear that doesn't really turn it off.

    Wi-Fi always on, even in Airplane mode-2015-08-11-08.10.36.jpg

    I'm aware of the setting "Scanning always available" and it's OFF. Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep is set to "Always", but unless I misunderstand this, I believe this is only supposed to keep Wi-Fi on when the phone's screen is off and the phone is locked. Does "Always" actually mean even in Airplane Mode? If not, I'd be very grateful if someone can suggest something I can do in order to resolve this.

    My phone and OS details are in my signature.

    Many thanks!

    I think that could be a glitch just in the battery stats. Sometimes I've seen the same solid bar in my phone with airplane mode on as well. Take a look at this thread, same problem with two different Motorola devices.

    Did my Wi-Fi always on?

    Hi all,

    It could very well be a glitch. I struggled many days to fix this doing all imaginable things. I posted in another thread here at AC, but what solved this Wi-Fi on always in Battery stats, was that I toggled Extreme Battery Saver on, then off. So far after several hours of power use, it remains no Wi-Fi bar in stats. That's whether plugged in or not. Hopefully, it stays that way overnight, because I had been loosing nearly 30-40% more battery than was usual.
