    Here are the pages from Apple regarding the charging of batteries.
    Please note that you can get up to 1000 cycles, and more important a single cycle is the Accumulation of the charge.
    Meaning if I charge every day 10% . It means within 10 days of such charging i make just one cycle

    I leave mine on standby. It's one of the the best aspects of the iPad- being able to have it ready to go at all times.

    I rarely do a full power down reboot of my iPad unless I find an App is acting up and rebooting clears the issue. Since I stopped using Safari I never have had an issue requiring a reboot. Go figure.

    I love how half of the responses (including mine :p ) have nothing to with the op's question... He asked when should he turn it completely off, and a bunch of people start arguing over when to drain the battery and charging... Lol

    Anyways, I don't think there's ever a need to, but I do mine every few days or so just cause I'm used to windows computers, and my ocdness makes it feel quicker upon booting back up.

    I never turn mine off and run the battery down once a month or so.

    I turn it off when I download a large game to clear the ram.

    I realize that all of you are correct and I am wrong. I assume Apple made an error on this page:

    Apple - Batteries

    Everyone can learn, even you experts that are quick to say NO, don't drain the battery.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Rats makes me realise how lazy I've been.
    Have only turned mine off three times in the last six months and it's been in daily use. Haven't noticed any impact on battery life though.

    I know!! Isn't that funny! I asked once on a thread, "How many iPads do you have?"

    Folks told me how many iPhones, Ipods, Apple computers they had too! It is a trip when off topic we go!

    No No. You are correct. It is what Apple says and many good folks I know. Stick to what you know is right, doesn't mean everyone does it. ;)
