    My ipad2 battery drains even when it is off. Does anyone else have this problem? I can charge it to 100% at night and by morning it is down to 90% without even using it. I am using the smart cover to turn it on and off -- I have the setting for the cover on "ON".

    As long as you have wifi, bluetooth, and/or g3 turned on it's still using power. Charging overnight might be a better idea.

    I don't have bluetooth, g3 turned on. My ipad1 is the same configuration, but it never drained when off. Just curious about the ipad2 because it could drain completely eventually without being used at this rate.

    That's not right. You should bring it back to Apple and get them to look at it.

    I'm no expert but i would try shutting off the smart cover on / off function, because i don't think it's really completely powered off with that function on.

    It's obvious;y just in sleep mode thereby still drawing battery life.

    Do you have a lot of push notifications turned on? Mine drains 10% over a few hours because of it.

    The iPad is always in sleep mode unless it's completely powered off by pressing and holding the physical power button on the side.

    Mine went from 100% to 65% charged sitting on the shelf, off, for 2 days.

    Theres also possibility that, thanks to damn multitasking, some of your apps are still on the run, hit the home button twice, the apps now popping up on the bottom are apps still running and draining battery life. Push and hold these, like deleting normal apps you can close them and battery will life longer again.

    I took the ipad2 to the Apple store as suggested, but the best I could get from the geniuses there is that a 1% to 2% drain per hour during sleep is normal.
