    official bug thread. - Page 2 - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com believe the Bionic has the same setting.

    I have been investigating this issue myself and have found that some of the battery saver apps that I had downloaded were controlling my wireless networks (even though I did not actually have those apps currently running) and every time I unlocked my phone they were turning on my WIFI. It was driving me crazy. Also the previous post regarding the system settings is also correct, in the system settings go to Wireless & Networks>WIFI Settings>Turn on WIFI> un-tick Open Network & Secure Network> Turn WIFI off.
    Hope this helps someone.
