Power nap for iPad. (If you don't know what power nap is I suggest you google it, it's a new feature on mountain lion)

Maybe a simple version of power nap, that when my wifi iPad is locked. The wifi goes on at least once every hour to sync new mail, notes, other iCloud stuff and my most needed, iMessage! I have iMessage to sync with my Mac and iPad. It is a pain in the ass on the iPad when I unlock to use. I have to wait for all the iMessages I had on my iPhone to sync! But on the Mac since I have power nap on, all my iMessages are synced up.

What do you guys think? Am I dreaming too much or looks like a very simple feature or very simple fix to the fuc*ed up iMessage syncing.

It should already work when it's locked. As long as it has an Internet connection it'll get emails and iMessages and stuff. Mine does...
