    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.

    Default Re: Who actually turns off their Playbook?

    I do. Painful as it may be I turn it off...... at least once every other day.

    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.

    Relax Book Nature (and there are other Relax Books like Rain) is an app that lets you choose your nature sounds and set the timer. I have several of them - they're wonderful.

The same would be true with the PlayBook.
    The auto on/off is a great feature. I used to use it when I still had a land line. But now, having young adult children who may be out all hours, I want to be reachable in an emergency. So I use Bedside Mode that turns off all alerts except the ringer for voice calls. Then I can also use my phone as my bedside alarm clock too.

    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.

    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%

    Default 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 OS

    I turn mine off all the time, but then I do not have a cradle for it.

    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.

    Electronics do not affect modern aircraft avionics....fact

    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
