    Hi, I just got my iPad2 a couple of days ago and I was wondering if most of you turn off your iPad at the end of the day or just leave it in sleep mode? Thanks for any info.

    Since I use Alarm Clock to wake me up in the morning, does it stay in sleep mode.

    Good point! I use that app as well, so it must be sleep mode because it has to be left in the app to work.

    I have never turned mine off once, I see absolutely no reason to as it uses no battery whatever in standby.

    When I first got it, I charged it and then left in in standby overnight. 12 hours later, the battery read 100% and it's been running ever since.

    I never turn off the 6 PC's and 1 MAC in my LAN either.

    Mine hasn't been shut down since I got it, well maybe once. There's really no need to shut it off, it uses no battery and is ready to go for you in the morning.

    Interesting .. To be honest I am also very tempted not to turn it off any more and have it ready when wake up right away. So I have noticed when I click the power button once the display turns off, is this the sleep mode ? Haven't found any other way of putting it to sleep but the question now is. If I place it into my sleeve case would there be a cooling problem? Would it be damaged in time. I ask be because it is m first iPad and to. Be honest ive never searched for any info on how these devices cool, do they need any cooling at all ?

    I have only turned mine off when there is a serious problem that requires rebooting - which is maybe once or twice in the month and a half I've had it.

    I've never had a cooling problem either when using it for several hours at a time in the case, or letting it sit asleep in the case. It hasn't left its case once since I bought the case about 3-4 days after getting the iPad. It never really seems to get warm, even with several hours' straight use.

    Damn.

    Mine looses 1%/hour on sleep mode. Perhaps I should update to 4.3.2, but I am still hoping for a release of comex 4.3 iPad 2 jb :(

    Do you leave your data on?

    I know after checking my T-Mobile account that the iPad consumes small amounts of data even when its in sleep mode. I only turn data on when I need it.

    Yes, 3G and Wifi is always on, in case one drops out.

    Tonight, both will be turned off for better comparison ;)

    If you have wifi at home (obviously I don't know where you are using it) shouldn't it default to the wifi over the 3G....I'm just asking as I don't know.....I only have the wifi model?
