    Because the iPad is still "running" in sleep mode. That's why you get the instant on when you press the sleep/wake button. The only way to prevent battery drain is to turn it fully off.

    It does seem high, and mine definitely loses more while sleeping than my ipad 2 ever did. I've checked the settings and turned off unneeded things. As I said in another thread, I'd think while sleeping the ipad 3 would lose less battery (assuming 4g is off) than the ipad 2, because the battery is so much bigger and the screen/graphics are obviously not used while sleeping.

    All your running apps in backround off that you don't need so they are still not running

    Push the center home button twice to see all apps that are recently running, then push one of the icon until their jiggle.
    After that you will see each icon have cross sign on the top left, you can close them by push the "x" sign.

    Apps that were recently running do not consume battery. That's all that "multitasking" bar is -- a list of recently run applications. Yes, some of the most recent apps are still in memory, but they are otherwise suspended and consume no CPU. If memory is needed, they are removed. Sometimes, if an app isn't behaving correctly, closing the app like this will help because it will force it to be removed from memory. But doing this does nothing to help battery and is a common misconception of how background processing works.

    There are a few exceptions to background apps -- apps that play music, for example, or some GPS apps. But by and large, when you hit the home screen, the app is suspended.

    I've left mine on all night and still found 100% the next morning...maybe you are running with blu-tooth on or you have weak wireless.
