Hey, i just thought I would add my 2 cents. Since getting my iPad a month ago, I noticed my battery life dropping fast, wifi acting weird, and generally sluggish performance. After searching Apple forums (literately for hours) reading countless suggestions I can say with absolute certainty that a restore (if done the right way) can significantly help problems associated with 5.0.1.
I would suggest doing the following. It is not a restore as you know it, but rather a flushing of the settings that carried over from previous updates after installing 5.0.1. It is easy to do and in my case completely fixed my problems.
For anyone new to the thread be sure to go through these steps to address the battery after updating to iOS 5.0.1:
1. Reset all settings (settings app-> general-> reset)
2. Go through initial setup steps (lang, wifi, siri, enable location, etc) and choose setup as new phone (don't worry your apps, data, contacts, mail will still be there). Do NOT restore from iCloud or iTunes (It can copy back corrupt settings)
3. Turn off system location services timezone and iAd
4. Fully discharge battery (until you get the spinning wheel and it shuts off)
5. Fully recharge battery (overnight if possible)
In my experience this improves the Standby battery drain issue significantly in most cases. It reduces drain from 2-4% or more per hr to 0.5% or less. It has worked for many, many users now. If it does not work after a few try's you may have a real battery or hardware issue and should contact Apple. Good Luck!
