    The WiFi isn't persistent; it deactivated after something like a minute after you lock the screen. If you want to disable wifi manually, than you can use SBSettings to disable it.

    Although it may not be the ideal solution, turning off notifications would aid in your battery dilemma. That's what I did when I was on iOS4 (I don't depend on notifications from my iPot).

    I'd also like to have a mod to disable the persistent WiFi. It kills the battery soo fast. >.<

    I liked how 3.1.3 was, where (I believe) it connected to the internet once every 15 minutes to check for a push notification or something. Much more battery friendly, and works just as well, if not better.

    Just install SBSettings and use the WiFi toggle.

    For me 15 minutes was not often enough.
    There should be an option in the settings for if you want wifi to stay on, or if you want it to check every 5, 10 or 25 minutes.
