    I was wondering the same ~ I knew they advocate the once a month thing, but have I missed the power down weekly?

    Never heard or read that before....

    I'm on day four with it and it still has 20% left. I believe its the first Apple device that's ever held true to the advertisements. I'm shaking my head after buying a NEW Trent Mobile Power Pack before the pad arrived. I thought I would drain the pad during a long flight to Europe and I now see that isn't so likely. Oh well, live and learn.

    I think the IOS is very stable. I feel the same way about my iMac too. I think the idea of shutting down is PC thinking.

    Nevertheless, I still think at least occasionally you should shut it down. Do it when you feel like it or just don't do it at all. If it starts to slow down or something then shut her down.

    Thank you very much for the input guys, this helped a lot. I really appriciate it, I will be powering down when I feel the need to. (once in a while) I'm sure this will help a lot of other people wondering the same thing.

    Off the whole night especially when charging?

    My ipad 2 can't be turned off when charging.

    I'm going to have to call Apple and ask for it in writing. Dad burn if I can find a link. When I first got mine and my wife's there was a problem with her account and the Apple guy sent me an email, after we got her iTunes account straightened out , with tips and tricks not in the iBooks 4.2 manual and they were a couple. The flick up on the keys was another.

    I turn it off every night. Just to save my battery. I'm finding it quicker to turn off than closing all running apps one by one after double tapping the home button.

    How does that save your battery?

    You don't have to be smart to understand, that if the device is in sleep, stand by or any other mode other than turned off, it consumes power.

    And if the device is turned off - it doesn't consume, but saves power.

    Do you agree? :)

    PS: I'm even not talking about those scenarios when some applications (which are still in memory) trie to connect to the internet for whatever reasons (downloading email etc.). Data connection in sleep mode also consumes battery power.

    In the link I just posted below another poster suggested the same but a later post cleared up the misunderstanding. I stand corrected and apologize for the unintentional misinformation
