    This is getting to be annoying. My playbook has been acting strange lately. Whenever I turn it on, wifi is automatically turned on, even though I turn it off before i turn off the Playbook itself. I usually use bridge to connect to the internet and rarely use wifi. Even if I put it on airplane mode, when I turn on the Playbook, wifi still is on.

    Sounds like a glitch. Have you restarted it using the power - and + all at the same time until it restarts? If that doesn't do and wipe might fix it or debrick but that will erase everything.

    Sounds like you have a resident app which insists on using wifi. Suggest using Advanced App Manager which is good for killing Android apps. Have occasionally noticed on my PB (yes I have one) that this very forum we are on now does not leave when I flip off the card.

    Done it several times already. I even did a security wipe and reinstalled the software.
