If I want to conserve battery use I can turn WiFi off and would also like to turn GPS off.
Is GPS always on or only when you have maps open?
I think it's always on by default, but there is a free app in the marketplace under tools for GPS on off.
Resistance is futile.

If you long-press a blank area of your screen, click "widgets," then "power control," you will get a widget that allows you to control the power to the wifi, bluetooth, gps, email push (I think), and auto-backlight.

If violence wasn't your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.
There are only 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary and those who don't.
You can handle it however you want to. I only have it notify me when I receive email directly from certain people. I find turning sync off and on too tedious. YMMV, of course.
It amazes me how so few people know about the stock Power Control widget, even more so when they are recommending others to download another one they don't even need.
You can also turn off GPS by:
App Listing (where all your apps are shown)
Location & Security
Use GPS Satellites switch
This certainly takes longer than the widget, but is availble with a stock system and no additional apps.
