    Does leaving wi-fi setting on run the battery down faster?

    Yeah, it draws power, but I've never seen it draw enough to really make a difference.

    If you are connected to a wifi network, you will save battery over 3G.

    The Power Control Widget makes it easy to turn on and off the items that draw power.
