    Getting mail while in sleep mode

    Should the iPad 2 be able to receive mail while it's asleep? I ask because when I close the cover, I hear the click that it's in sleep mode but I occasionally hear the mail sound that mail has arrived (it has).
    Just curious as I don't want to turn the ipad off for 2 hours or so if I'm not using it but I also don't want to deplete the battery any more than needed.

    Yes - the iPad can and does receive email when in Sleep mode. It 'wakes up' very briefly to check the mail - depending on how frequently you've asked it to check - and, if there's mail plays the 'You have mail' alert (unless you've set it to Mute) and then goes back to sleep again. The battery depletion is minimal, so no need to worry.

    Thanks for the uber quick answer.
    Another part of my learning curve.
