You're probably thinking of time-shared multitasking (although the term "time-shared" itself is quite obsolete), in which several programs appear to run simultaneously (to human perception) because the tasks are time-sliced within the CPU in quick succession.
When you listen to music you use the musicplayer daemon. You can have real multitasking but then you'll have to jailbreak your iPadOriginally Posted by peled

I have had this same problem twice now on seemingly random nights with no noticeable change in my use behaviors (always had it set to autolock never as I am a developer). This morning I decided to google it while I wait for it to charge and this post kick started my brain. What happened to me (and I am guessing is probably the culprit for you) is that you put your ipad to sleep the same as you always do, but that you had received a pop-up notification (in my case a calendar reminder that I had just started using more of). In my case the notification was set to a day before a 4:30m event and I was at my mother-in-laws until later in the night and hadn't looked at my ipad until the following morning, over 13 hours later and plenty of time to drain a battery.

I saw a report somewhere that using a Bluetooth device can deplete the battery faster than normal, but I don't know if this is true.
It may be, as I do know that my Bluetooth headphones will last around 8 hours if BT is used, but as much as 10 hours with BT switched off and the phono cable used instead.
However, the battery in the headphones has a much smaller capacity, so BT is likely to consume a proportionately larger amount of its power than would be the case with the iPad battery.
Can someone help me. I have a apple ipad for a year but before a week my ipad was turned off due of battery loss power (0%).
After a week I have tried to charge the battery but my ipad doesn't charge but every 3 or 5 seconds show white screen with apple in the middle.
Thanks for understanding
Are you using the iPad charger, or trying to charge it via a USB port on your computer?
Yes I am using iPad charger 10W USB Power Adapter.
The fact that it shows the white Apple logo every few seconds is an indication that the iPad is trying to power up but that the battery charge is too low. You need to make sure it's switched off and then charge it for several hours and try again.
how can i be sure that ipad is switched off because when i put the ipad in charger every time show the whit screen with apple in the middel doesn't stop showing this screen every 3 or 5 seconds.
