WiFi enabled and Battery drain (M6 II)

Many of the Canon cameras have the option to Enable or Disable the WiFi.
Has anyone noticed faster battery drain when leaving always the WiFi enabled ?
Even when enabled I’d assume the WiFi will go into sleep mode when is not connected to a device. In other words, zero battery utilization.
I could do a test to find out, but wondering if someone know the facts about this.
I do not know on a Canon, but on a Nikon Z series I disable WiFi if not using, this way the WiFi radio transceiver is not drawing any power from the camera battery. Airplane mode is much of the same which I use a lot.

I recommend hitting "You Tube University" and pulling a search on such and quite sure all the best camera computer menu settings for many uses (like Landscape and Low Light) has been posted up.

Hope this helps?
