    I leave the iPhone on all day, and turn it off at night. I have a landline, so I like to give my iPhone a rest at night.

    With my iPad, I turn it off right after I'm finished using it just so I don't forget to turn it off (as I may not use it for days).

    iPhones and iPods are not meant to be turned off.

    Wow, I turn my iPad off after each use so I don't forget to turn it off. Since the iPhone is a cell phone, I leave it on all day and turn it off at night (especially considering I have a landline - I could understand people who leave it on who have no landline).

    No. Usually just put it in airplane mode while I'm sleeping.

    My iPhone is my alarm clock so it
    Stays on however at night it's airplane mode so I get no notifications and no extra radio waves by my head

    Nope, there's no need to turn it off. Don't really see any purpose in turning it off, actually.

    If I had a landline, I would shut my phone off. One of my greatest fears is having my house broken into without me having access to a phone. So my iPhone charges right next to me (I use the sleep cycle app anyway).

    I never use airplane mode because I am typically on-call from 8am - 7pm every day of the week.

    I guess to each their own, but I don't turn off any of my Apple products. Ever. Well, nearly so. Certainly not the portable ones.

    My iProducts get turned off about once every 6 months, normally out of necessity (trying to get an app to load, etc.)

    So all you guys use airplane mode while flying? I like to save a little battery so turn it off when I fly. Other than that on all the time.

    I guess I'm the only person in the whole world that turns their iPhone/iDevices off at night.

    Heck, like I said, I turn my iPad off when I'm done using it. :p

    Because I get a nagging feeling if I don't (for my iPad). I may not use the iPad for days at a time, so I like to turn it off after every time I'm done using it.

    With my iPhone I don't get that nagging feeling as much, but still like to turn it off at night.

    Your iPad will not consume much power when it is sleeping. Mine has been in sleep mode for weeks at a time before and I have woken it up and seen it with battery life only about 5% lower than it was before going into sleep.

    Only time I ever switch my iDevices off is when I need to restart.

    Otherwise always on...as as intended (that's why Jobs didn't include an on/off switch)

    Well aside from being an alarm clock at night, its also my primary phone, so I have no choice but to leave it switched on.

    +1 but I wish there were 3 profiles to use instead of the up/down switch.

    I don't have my iPad yet but when I do get mine, I doubt I'll be turning it off. The main reason I want to get it is to have quick access to my mail, internet, news, etc.

    With my iPhone, or with any phone, I like to have it working all the time. Never know when you might get an emergency call from somewhere in the middle of the night. Plus, when I sleep in on the weekends, I get a few calls in the morning. If my phone was off, then I'd never know that I got calls (well I would after, but I wouldn't be able to pick up the phone :D ) Not to mention, my phone also serves as my alarm clock on occasions. Even if I do get calls and stuff, I don't really find it distracting to my sleep. I guess it's personal preference.

    My iPhone is my primary phone. I don't ever look at my house phone (so maybe that's why I never turn it off).

    I leave my phone on 24/7 because I also rely on it as an alarm clock. The only time I turn it off is when I do my monthly battery calibration.
