    I notice sometimes after I leave wifi on, and don't use my phone for say an hour or two, when I quickly go to market or the web, it uses 3g and then wifi starts after a period of time. Has anyone noticed this?

    Settings > Wireless & Networks > WiFi Settings > Menu Key > Advanced > WiFi sleep policy

    Set this to never.

    That might not be the exact path, it's been a while since I was on Stock.

    Does X even have that stock?

    The reason it does that op, is because 3G uses less power than wifi when idle. This is by design.

    I don't have an X; that's why I asked.

    True, but I find that the difference is negligible, and I would rather just be on WiFi all the time.

    Oh my B, replied from my phone, couldn't see your phone and assumed you had a X.

    3g uses less power than wifi?

    When idle, yes.

    It is better to use wifi though, the phone just automatically switches wifi off when you're not using it to save power.
