I can't remember the last time I turned my Playbook off. Must be over a year since I've done that. Does rebooting count? I've done that many times, but haven't actually purposely turned it off.BB then, now, forever...yeah, I said it.

Re: Who actually turns off their Playbook?
I do. Painful as it may be I turn it off...... at least once every other day.“Today a young man on Acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed into a slow vibration. That we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream within the imagination of ourselves… here’s Tom with the weather.” BH

I never turn mine off either. I just do a reboot usually once a week just to refresh the system or when something gets wonky (most of the time it is my AOL mail)...otherwise it is always on the rapid charger and just sits in standby overnight.Lovin' the Playbook and hatin' the cynics!

I turn mine off once in awhile just because.Sent from me using my fingers. Be pantless in 5K. Febreze - for more than smells.

That power button is just too hard to use on a regular basis. Too small and no tactile feel when you activate it. I had to RMA my first PB because of it. Otherwise, I might turn it off more often. It also takes way too long to boot up. Standby for me!

I only turn it off when getting on planes. And not because of "evil electronics kill navigation systems brouhaha", but because I want to have as much juice as possible before getting on the plane and enjoy my PB for as many hours as the battery will hold.
Also; Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones + PlayBook = Entire plane is jealous.

I never turn it off unless is strictly necessary like when you have to make a hard reset or my battery is super low, like under 4%
Why don't we do something, let's post since when our PB's are on, just go to About and then select Hardware and check out your Boot Time, mine is Nov 12 23:20:34 COT 2012Sent from my spectacular PlayBook!!

Turning off PB
I turn off my PB at the end of the day (night). If I don't use it for an hour or so I put it on Standby. I make it a point to recharge the PB when battery charge goes down to 30% The number is not empirical, just my habit of making sure there's sufficient charge to do things on the PB.

Rarely, if ever. I reboot it about once a week when I know I won't need it for a few minutes. Basically the same as my BB. Always on, charging at night. Periodic reboots. The only time I can think of that I regularly shut it off was when we were camping and I wouldn't be able to charge it for a week and would be using it infrequently.
BTW, I'm at 496 Recharge Count battery health of 84%. IIRC, the high was 91% when new. I don't notice any difference in usage length. Any degradation of the battery has been offset by improvements to the OSI'm still alive, walkin' in the sunshine And if I die, I'm dyin' with a smile on my face

What really rise my eyebrows is that after months and months of not a single turn off and just a reboot because of the update, the 1.6 years old PlayBook is still running like the first day back in April 2011 QNX has such an amazing stability... Just wonderful. And if BB10 is anything like the PlayBook, guys write it on stones, our next phones will never suffer those awful battery pulls.I rock a BlackBerry Z10

Actually is pretty true, they do effect older aircraft in some ways (usually aircraft over 10 years old). Day in day out I see aircraft engineers and avonic technicans using mobile phones, iPads, playbooks etc while working on aircraft systems and when an aircraft goes out for a test flight I have been often asked to go out on the flight and use my mobile phone with wireless hotspot on and use the playbook while they assess any issues.
In fact one company I know of is retro fitting their aircraft with wireless access so people can use PB's and iPads etc while traveling.
I do however agree with the ban on using mobile phones on flights, I'm sure the person sat next to me won't want a punch in the throat after the umpteenth call during a 5 hour flight

I'm a PlayBook off kinda guy myself for no particular reason other than it's what I'm used to. On the other hand, my partner leaves hers on all the time and I've found that mine is less glitchy, charges faster and goes a significantly longer time between charges. The only inconvenience for me is that I go through that protracted boot up once a day, about the same amount of time it takes me to get a pot of coffee going first thing in the morning
