    I had a question if I have my Auto-Brightness on should I drag the Brightness Adjustment Slider all the way down to Zero ? Or Should I leave it half the way in between or where exactly ?

    Sometimes in a dark room the brightness may need a little adjustment on auto brightness.
    I always leave mine about halfway and press the home button twice and scroll to the left for quick adjustment. It does make significant difference to battery life.

    G'day magneto. No, no need to drag it to zero. At whatever slide position it's in, if you have Auto Brightness set to "On", it will adjust itself automatically eg when you go outside. But you can override this at any time with the slider even when it's on Auto Brightness.
    Regards, Andrew

    Well, I generally use it in the evenings on a lounge chair with a side lamp and the slider on about a third of the way along which gives me a good, economical (battery wise) brightness and nice for reading. I have auto brightness off but if you have it On you can still adjust to suit youself for reading if you sit down like me. But if you have auto "On" and if you moved to say a much darker room your iPad will get automatically brighter. I hope that makes sense.
    Regards, Andrew
