    I've had my ipad only a few days and i noticed the bluetooth is on and i didnt change anything - so by default - but there is no icon in the menubar.... anyway, i turned it off.. maybe battery drain?

    Anyone else notice this? Or am i missing something?

    The new ipad, like the iphone 4s, supports bluetooth 4.0. This is supposed to no longer be a big battery drain, so Apple have enabled it by default, presumably their testing supported the theory of little to no power drainage.

    Leaving the BT on would use very little battery unless you were actually using the BT feature. Apple is really good about making these feature go to "sleep" when not in use.
