    My iPad on lock still drains pretty quick? Like over 12 hours drops 30% is this normal ? I have the 3G wifi version

    Sounds a little fast on the drain.

    If you have push notifications active on iPad and on WIFI, it has to keep wifi radio alive in order to receive those notifications. It also flashes the screen.

    I went through and wiped out lockscreen notifications from my ipad so the screen never wakes up when it's sitting locked in standby.

    That's a little alarming. I lose at most maybe 1-2% on standby over an entire day.

    Try turning off notifications and 3G? Or maybe there's something running in the background.

    It's locked by the smart cover. Is that why maybe? I.e. it's really awake?


    I would turn off 3G wifi notifications but isn't that a bit pedantic to do every time?

    No, my iPad is locked by Smart Cover all the time and it doesn't drain that fast. I'd take it to an Apple Store to have it looked at. Never mind fiddling with 3G, wifi and notifications, I have them all turned on, and it still doesn't drain when not being actively used.

    ^ +1. I have everything turned on and see very minimal decrease while on standby.

    How about before prescribing a Genius Bar visit he tells us exactly what he does have running? The guy might have some rogue app that's causing this, or he might receive a thousand notifications an hour. We just don't know enough yet.

    Even if that is the case, which I think is unlikely, Genius Bar has diagnostic software that can track down such issues. Much simpler than a bunch of forum posters trying to remote diagnose the issue.

    Notifications, push, email

    Check these things.

    Make sure nothing is running in the foreground when you close the cover.
