Should I turn Wifi off when I'm not using it?

Does Wifi drain the battery even when my phones on standby, or is it ok to leave it on?

My Android turns off wifi when the phone is locked.

but did you know that typing in lower case also reduces battery consumption (_;)

It can make a difference as it will keep on searching while there's no APs about. Though I have to say I still need to charge my phone every night and it's the difference between the phone being on 20% (wifi on) or 30% (wifi off) battery left at the end of the day.

IF ITS AN IPHONE ON STANDBY WIFI DEFAULTS OFF TILL U UNLOCK IT AGAIN!, WITH ANDROID IT MAY BE SEARCHING/WASTING BATTERY LIFE
