    Is it possible to disable wifi autoconnection to increase battery life.

    "Forger this network" is not the solution because it loss password data !

    I don't think manually connecting increases battery life; I think it actually decreases it.

    You could tick that option under the networks which asks you to join a network when you turn on the Wi-Fi.

    My personal (non-scientific) experiment show that keeping wifi on drastically decrease battery life.

    This option only work for unknown network !

    Disabling autoconnect wouldn’t turn off wifi though. Even when you’re not connected to a network, wifi is still turned on unless you turn it off. What you want to do is go to Settings > Wi-Fi and turn it to “Off”. Then when you want to use it, turn it back on.
