    Go to Settings>Wi-fi, tap Menu, then Advanced, and make sure "Scanning always available" is unchecked.

    Also if you're on Sprint ensure the "Sprint Connection Optimizer" is turned off. If it is on it will keep randomly turning your WiFi on. It is Sprint's way of trying to get people off the network and on WiFi.

    Yeah, I already did that. It wasn't that. I think it's that Lookout security app from T-Mobile. It usually happens when I restart my phone. My GPS & WiFi turn on. It's so that if my phone gets stolen or lost I can pinpoint its location. But WiFi did turn on once automatically when it recognized a WiFi connection I had previously used at a friends house. I don't know how that happen.

    Lookout has a bug with the Note 3 and 4, and they haven't fixed it yet. Android Device Manager does just as good a job finding and wiping your lost phone, and doesn't draw any power. And there are other antimalware apps - Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and anti-virus apps - Kaspersky Internet Security, Avast Mobile Security & Antivirus, AVG AntiVirus Security or Avira Antivirus Security.
