    I never had a use for Bluetooth before I got the PlayBook and paired it.

    I tend to leave the bridge as well as BT on even when I'm not using the PlayBook.

    Does this drain the battery? Leaving Bluetooth on even when no BT device is in range?

    Same for wifi?

    Thanks!

    I think Bluetooth uses a small amount of energy when left on. Mine is always turned off until I need it.

    About the Wifi connection. I'd say it does also use energy as some people turn wifi off / on with an NFC tag on their front doors. (With our Bolds & other NFC BB's)

    I will have to watch the battery use with both on and off.

    No probs.

    Someone may have even tested the battery drain with a battery app or the new battery analyser.
