Default WiFi battery drain....

Please Login to Remove!

I've never been a big fan of leaving Wifi on, on a Blackberry. As Im using the Torch on T-Mobile, I figured I might as well, as OTA i have only EDGE while in the US.

On my iPhone 4, leaving the WiFi on actually consumes LESS battery than 3G. However, on my 2 day test with the Torch so far, staying on WiFi seems to drain the battery quite a bit.

As well, does anyone know how the device works when WiFi is on, but, not connected to anything? Does the WIFi "sleep" when not connected, therefore not draining the battery nearly as much as if connected? Or does the WiFi on, not connected, still drain the battery quite a bit?
