    hello!

    stupid question but what exactly is 30day standby?

    how fast does it wake? can processes still run in the backgroud?

    how does it compare to an ipad? what about the air?

    Answer

    30day standby = laptop is still turned on, but you are not actively(in hibernation/sleep state) using it or having any background app. running. The battery should still have charge within those 30day, after 30 days then there should be VERY LITTLE to no charge left.

    Wake time = normal wake time if you still have battery by the 30th day.

    Can Processes still run in the background? short answer: no.

    How does it compare to an ipad? it works in the same way, your computer/air/ipad hibernates/sleeps until you want to use it.

    yeah, eventually, but it depends on the settings you set for "computer sleep" within system preferences->energy saver.

    Yep. It's called power management. But it won't turn wireless off, if you're actively transmitting something (like AirPlay or torrents), because net transmission counts as busy time, not idle time.
