    The title says it all.... Do you ever turn off your iPad, of course from time to time it requires a reboot, but how often do you shut it down/restart it on your own.....

    I've owned mine since Saturday afternoon, and it hasn't been turned off yet :)

    I'm on my iPad1 right now. I've owned it since its release date and never turned it off.

    I've owned my 3 for a couple weeks. I haven't turned it off and don't see any reason to do so. Why would one want to turn off an iPad?

    Is it bad to turn it off? I turn mine off every night (same as my iPhone usually)....... I have two kids to take care of so if I turn it on while they are napping or playing I will usually turn it off after since I know I may not get back to using it later....

    Shouldn't do it any damage. Good chance it will charge quicker if you use the off time to plug it in to an outlet. It's good to do a reboot every now and then to tidy up memory, so just look at it as an extra long boot up.

    What if you needed to make an emergency call at night? With the phone off your ability to do so is impeded.

    I never turn my phone off (unless I'm getting on an airplane or resetting for some reason). I've turned my iPad off only if I thought I needed to reset it for some reason (or on an airplane). Otherwise, there is no reason to turn them off.

    I turn it off on an airplane during takeoff and landing, but outside of that it is on 24/7 unless of course it needs a reboot.

    I've never thought about emergency calls. I figure I would just use the house phone but if that was out I would be in trouble. I just thought it was better for the device to not be on 24/7

    I do a shutdown every couple weeks to make sure it goes through a reboot procedure on occassion.

    More often than not, I forget to turn it off.
    But it still work well after being powered.
