    It's 50/50 for me. Depending which part of the day i'm charging the iPad. If charging at night, for sure it's off.

    I don't know why anyone would turn it completely off to charge. It only has a rudimentary charging system when it is off... It's only meant to give it enough of a charge so the device can power up for a proper charge.

    My iPad is always on. When it is charging it is charging at night I use it as an alarm clock. I have never charged it during the day, as thenbattery always lasts no matter how hard I try.

    I do do the hard reboot where you hold power and home once a week to clear the memory though.

    If it's a buffet style restaurant I don't think you'd really need to worry about the rules of etiquette so much. Leave them on a napkin on the table.

    I usually charge mine over night, in standby mode.

    Never. I normally charge my iPad everyday when I sleep, and I always turn it off during those times. Though sometimes I do end up forgetting, but then it always goes off on standby mode after 5 minutes anyway.

    Every night I take mine out of the case (to avoid trapping heat) and plug it in. I've never turned it completely off, but after reading this thread I'm going to try and remember to turn it off now and again - I didn't know about that memory leak phenomenon. Thanks!

    Always left in standby when charging. Used to charge every night, but now I've got a case with an extra battery in it, it gets charged about twice a week as always has full charge. Only time the iPad itself gets a flat battery is after about 18 hours use. Reset about once a month, just because...

    I never power down my iPad. It's on 24/7. Either during the day or at night I'll plug it in, n put it to sleep when not using it. Never had any issues.

    Mine is plugged in now because I ran the battery down last night as suggested by one of our famous IPF moderators.
