There are some mentioned somewhere that GN 10.1 2014 drains more battery while in sleep mode compare to iPad. Out of the box, between ipad and GN 10.1 2014, I agreed that ipad drains very little when in sleep. What people does not know is. IPad turns off wifi everytime when it goes to sleep. This saves a lot of power. All Mac laptops do the same. GN 10.1 2014 on the other hand ALWAYS has wifi on regardless. Which continues to drain battery while in sleep mode. The good news is. You can turn that off. While in seeting, wifi, click on menu button and select advanced. You can set the "KEEP WIFI ON DURING SLEEP" to never. This will save the power. With is setting, I see very little battery drian from my GN 10.1 2014 when in sleep for a long period.

Interesting tip. But I'm finding the battery life on this quite good even with WiFi on all the time. I'm getting 7-8 hours with moderate use. My only issue is that it does take what seems a very long time to charge after drained down to about 10%.Im a Teldy a TEchnical oLDY .

Sounds good. Too bad there wasn't a setting based on time. This way we could set it to "never" during the night but always during the day or whatever hours we chose. This way when you pick up the tablet during the day and then put it down for a while, when you picked it back up everything was good to go.
Might try it anyway. Thanks.

The iPad still receives notifications instantly while sleeping so if WiFi was truly off the whole time, you would not be seeing any notifications.
The place where the iPad saves the most battery is with iOS and the limited background processes that can occur, while your note may have 20 services running in the background, the iPad will have maybe 1.

I don't think the ipad turns off wifi when it sleeps. When I'm home, I receive iMessages instantly, as well as email, game and news notifications when the unit is asleep. If WiFi was truly off, this wouldn't be the case would it? Also, when I am arriving at work in the morning, as soon as I get close enough to the building to start receiving a WiFi signal, my sleeping ipad will automatically connect to the company wifi and give me any outstanding email, news, game notifications that came while I was not connected to any WiFi during my commute. So, to me, this tells me that not only does the iPad not turn off WiFi while sleeping, it actually continues to search for a signal while sleeping.
Not sure if that is the power nap feature that allows push notifications while in sleep? That is probably app specific that take advantage of power nap. I know my gmail wont come through till I unlock thd ipad. I know OS X has it, I am not totally sure if that made into ios. It is certainly a good discussion topic.
