    My 2 cents: I just added a "Toggle Wifi" widget. Now when I get home, turn on the Maxx it is just a quick swipe and a press. Wifi on.

    Personally, with the kind of battery you have in the maxx, do you really need to worry about that? I used to on this phone, but with the extended battery, I've found that the benefit from toggling on and off isn't that much.

    Then again, I have wifi at work too, so most of the time off wifi is driving between work and home.

    Anyway, if it is that important to you, I second llama, as it can perform actions based on cell towers. Personally, though, I removed it as I didn't find any real battery savings from having it running.

    Setting Profiles (Full or Lite) is a great option as well. Supports GPS location. https://market.android.com/details?id=com.probeez.liteprofiles

    WIFI on/off with GPS

    I use Tasker, bought it when it was having a special couple years ago so not sure how much it costs now but man, is it powerful. I have just a few tasks set
    1. Turn on wifi for my home when im within 400 meters of my house
    2. Turn on wifi at work when I'm within 400 meters
    3. Turn on BlueTooth at specific time each day (on the way home)
    4. pop up sms message when I miss a call telling me who called

    This thing can do anything and I underuse it by about 99.9% but it does what I needed at the time. Worked with my OG Droid/Droid 2, Droid INC and now with my RAZR MAXX
