    Does PUSH email still occur while iPad in sleep mode?

    I have my email (Exchange) configured for push mode. Does the iPad continue to accumulate inbound email via push when it is in sleep mode? Or does it get email once you wake it up?

    In sleep mode WiFi is off but 3G is on so, if you have 3G, your emails come in at night. I have my iPad by my bed at night and, if I forget to hit the 'mute' switch it can wake me up as the IPad Forum reported posts stream in!

    Wifi shouldn't turn off in sleep mode. As long as the iPad is not shut down completely, will the push emails delivered straight to your device.

    My iPad still receives and plays the incoming mail sound, when it is in sleep mode, i.e. display off and it doesn't have a SIM card inside, so it has to be connected to the Wifi.

    If Wifi was on, before the iPad enters sleep mode, it stays on.

    Not everyone has to agree with your point of views, but at some point they need to accept Them!

    Tim, you can also plug in your headset before you go to bed. The tone goes off but you just don't hear it.

    Sort of related question... The most frequent setting I can set gmail to check for emails is 15 minutes... Any way to make this 5 min or less?

    I want it to notify me as soon as emails show up.

    Simply follow these instructions to setup your gmail account as exchange, it will support push, so that your emails will show up on your iPad immediately:
