    Here's my screen shot. How can I find out if something is accessing it without it being turned on in the notification shade?

    It's a bug we got with the Lollipop updates. The battery manager shows Wi-Fi as on no matter what you do, even if it actually is off. I have not had a chance to report it yet.

    Yep I have it too. Very annoying because I have terrible battery drain and haven't figured out why.

    Go into wifi settings. Click the 3 dots in upper right corner. Advanced then un check the always allow scanning. It will stop it showing always on under the battery stats

    This worked for me. It still shows up when I use it and occasionally when I don't (hard to tell on that tiny line), but at least it's not on solid.
