    iPads about a week old and seemed to be fine to start with. The past couple of days I've noticed that the battery seems to drain (excessively) compared to other user experiences. Last night it drained 25% in sleep mode. I even turned WiFi off (no bluetooth etc) before going to bed to test it.

    Can someone let me know whether this is abnormal.

    mine remains the same although my iphone...that drains a bit more.

    maybe try to recycle the battery?

    Mine loses essentially no charge in sleep mode. Steve himself said it should last 2 weeks in sleep. You have something defective.

    You didn't by chance use the Spirit jailbreak, did you?

    I think I've found the problem. I'd been charging via USB. Last night I charged via AC and this morning it has still retained full charge. I think there must have been some effect from using USB.
