    So at first I reasoned that apple must be turning off wifi when you shut off the screen like on the iTouch, so there was no way to receive push notifications after its been off for an extended amount of time. This was confirmed to me when I left my aim username signed in and after about 2 minutes of being off I stopped getting push notifications.

    My question to you guys, if this is the case.....how the hell did Find My iPad make it start ringing the second I send the message when it had been off for four hours?

    I'm extremely interested to know, any help would be great.

    I don't know, but push email doesn't seem to be working on mine even while I am using it. I can hear my computer upstairs get the email through, my iPhone vibrates, but iPad nada. :(

    The only thing that I could think of is that the WiFi isn't turned off, it's actually in a deep low power/sleep mode that it can turn on every once in a while to look for information. If it access Apple server during that time, it'll get that iPad notification since it's prioritized over any other push notifications.

    I get push notifications even when my screen is off. I haven't unlocked my screen since last night and I've received several push notifications already this morning (from over night). I'm using a Linksys router.
