    So I managed to pick up the iPad 4 and have set it up as a new device. It's running the same crap as I have on my iPhone, just the iPad-sized versions. However, I noticed that my usage and standby time are the exact same... so something is preventing it from sleeping.

    I downloaded the latest iOS update (6.0.1.) and restored it as new from within iTunes. I've looked everywhere I can, but it still seems to be doing it. One thing I've noticed is sometimes my WiFi is randomly dropping. Bug in iOS 6.0.1 or what?

    I can't find anywhere where an app is keeping it from sleeping. Help!

    I'm noticing the exact same thing on my new 4th gen iPad. I did restore from a backup of my first gen iPad, but I didn't notice this problem when I first began using it (in fact I remember the counts not being identical at first). I've tried resetting all settings, but I still have noticed the problem even with all my apps killed. I saw someone in another iOS 6 thread mentioned removing safari bookmarks syncing and reactivating it (something about bookmarks syncing getting stuck in a loop). I also activated Facebook integration between when I first started using my iPad and when I began noticing this issue. Do you have Facebook disabled and have you tried disabling the safari bookmark setting in iCloud (or deleting and re-adding iCloud). Let me know what works for you.

    CNNMoney App

    Managed to resolve the issue and find the app that was the culprit without having to restore (too bad I already did an erase all settings which didn't help). The runaway app was CNNMoney. Thanks to someone on the apple support forums, I managed to figure out that after you've run this app the only solution is to delete it (killing it will not stop it). When I deleted it, all I had to do was reboot and plug back in. Usage/Standby times back to normal
