    Should I turn off the device when i am not using it for a long period of time--like over night?

    It should be charging @ night. It takes a few hours to fully charge.

    I tuck my iPad in at night on her charging dock....and then she's ready to go the next day. During the day if I'm going out and about I do put her into sleep mode (as opposed to full shut-off mode) until I am ready to use her again.

    I've noticed the iPad's battery to drain relatively quickly while in sleep mode. I am very impressed with its battery life though!

    I haven't seen that happen on mine. You must have push notifications turned on?

    Haven't noticed that. Haven't charged mine nor turned mine off in two days and it's still at 56%. Amazing battery life

    It's a 12 hour battery playing movies back to back.
    You don't have to turn it off.
    It's not that serious.
