    Aside from closing open Apps - by double-clicking on the 'Home' button and dealing with each App listed in then lower window that displays - how is everyone insuring that their Apps are indeed closed down?

    I ask this because the above procedure had always been done, but I just recently learned (at the Apple Store) that there were some Apps which were killing my battery, by running in the background.

    The iPad is not a multitasking machine. The application in the background, is just suspended. Not running. The only task that can run in background is iPOD. And regarding the battery - forget it. The application that draw current is a bright screen, and a running GPS applicaion

    Well, I have not tried to treat it as such (a Multi-tasking machine), and only know what the tech told me, at the Apple Store. He stated that I had Mobile Email issues, resulting in crashes, and that there were Apps causing a premature drain on my battery.

    They swapped my unit out, but I really haven't had the time to put this new one to the test, yet. I just hope that it isn't to be plagued with the same problem(s), and am trying to learn what all I could do to insure that wouldn't be.

    The processes that most drain your battery contains Push Notification, 3G-net, location service,etc. Most apps just suspend when in background and do not run or drain battery(iPod and some navi apps excluded).

    You may turn those function off if you want a longer usage.

    Also, Nathan ~ I have my light on the brightest as I love it that way. But some say that it does drain the battery quicker ~ you can dim your light considerably in settings.

    @ Marie.

    I have done that (lowered the brilliance setting) on this replacement, and have made sure that I have closed out of each program I had opened. I have had this one on almost ever since I returned from the Apple Store, last night, which means that it has been on ever since about 9pm, or so. I couldn't sleep, last night, and have been on this thing almost ever since. It is now nearly 6:45am, which translates into my iPad being on for about fifteen minutes shy of 10hrs.

    I've still not played any videos, and I definitely don't play music on my iPad (I have a dedicated MP3 player for that), but I HAVE played a few games on it - as well as a good bit of surfing & emailing. Right now my battery is at 43%, and I guess that things are indeed a bit better. As I stated, I have not watched any videos on it yet, but I will soon - as I am anxious to find what the battery's depletion rate would be, with some higher taxing duties being given to it. But methinks that I should be good to go now :).
