I leave it on, much like my iPhone. Both stay plugged into a charger most of the time. There are various levels of "off". The lowest power draw is what you call off. You can use airplane mode to lower draw significantly when you are not near a charger or prevent connectivity to other devices etc.

When I go to sleep, I turn it off. When I'm not using it during the day, I Leave it in sleep mode. Sometimes it doesn't like to stay turned off when I'm shutting it down while on the charger at night.

I leave it on. I started out turning it off with the idea of preserving battery life, but the amount it drains in sleep mode is negligible and it lasts a couple of days under normal use, so I no longer bother.

I always leave it on as I love the fact that in the morning I can grab it and with a swipe and a touch I can have the market futures right in front of me where ever I am. Not tied to the PC anymore!

Arrant nonsense. Mine's been in nearly continuous use since I received it 28 May (Canadian release date). It sleeps when I sleep, goes on the charger when the 20% warning pops up, or when I'm asleep if it's below 50%.

Hasn't been warm enough to melt margarine, let alone solid state parts.
