Ipad around the house question

Hi all, if you just use your ipad in your home only do you have any sort of case for it ? Or a sleeve type case or just keep it naked ?
Im trying to decide if i should put it in something when not in use.

I keep my in the original box when not in use until my cases arrive. It seems like it would scratch easily so I'm being carefull.

Mine currently resides in a Speck Candy Shell and sits wherever i happen to put it when i'm not using it. Often on my pillow or the ironing board in the kitchen.

Nope, no case needed. No scratches or problems since launch day.

I use the MacAlly Bookstand when I'm going to be doing typing. Otherwise, it goes naked, and I use a TwelveSouth BookArc stand by my bed to keep it out of the way when not in use. No issues.

I keep mine in a Yoobao leather case, like this:

Works and feels great in use around the house, and also looks great and protects well when taking it out in public.

I have a Yoobao case also, but I think any apple case knock-off that is well-made should do the job (including the apple case, of course).
I like the functionality and some protection that the case provides, and the ability to prop it up on my lap/table/anywhere is great.

I have tried a few case but I hate the extra bulk and awkwardness of use. I have powersupport screen protector and a SGP carbon skin on the back. I use it a lot in bed and I find it much easier to use without a case. Sitting on the lounge or desk I simply prop it up on my reading glasses case since I always have them with me.

I have a slim Cygnett slip protector which lives in my manbag for transport.

Mine sits in a belkin grip vue... That way I can pretty much set it anywhere. I also have a belkin pleated sleeve to throw it in when I take it out. I have been very happy with the set up so far.

Ditto. With infants around it stays in the Apple case all the time.

Mine's naked. I think I'll get a dock though for when I'm not using it.

Mine went naked for the first several weeks while I decided on a case. I wanted a case for help with typing more than anything else. I had no scratch issues from using the naked iPad. When I took it somewhere I slipped it into a pocket/envelope I had made out of a spare Domke camera wrap, which is a padded square you can fold into all sorts of contortions. I use those to turn regular bags into DSLR bags so I had several lying around, but I would buy one just for the iPad to travel around in in the future if I was going to keep the iPad naked otherwise.
