Is it best to turn off my iPad when not in use?

I use my iPad a couple of times a day. Reading, checking email, etc. Should I turn it off e
After each use or can I just leave it on?

    if you will go hours before checking it again than yes, because that will drain battery. i recommend going to settings, general, and then setting auot lock for 2 or 5 minutes. i think auto lock is the way to go.

  • if you are not using it for long periods maybe, Ive gone to work and left my ipad on for the most part! and the batterie was still good! What you want to do though is Turn the brightness of your screen down, that will save on batterie Power as Well!
