    Or do you shut it down at night or when you aren't using it?

    I leave mine on 24/7. I probably reboot it once every few weeks or so.

    I have the 12.9 and leave it on 24/7 except for when I need to recharge it. Then I will reboot it.

    No, I do not. Having said that. if I know I'm going to be using it good deal that particular day then I'll leave it powered on until I'm done. I don't use my iPad Pro as much as I use my iPhone so therefore there is no need for me to keep it powered on 24/7.

    Haven't turned it off since I've gotten it. Figure that's what standby mode is for.

    I leave mine on all the time and reboot about once a week. I did the same with my Ipad 3 and it's still going strong today.

    It seems most people just leave it running over night. Mine gets shut down every night or rather, it gets turned off when I'm finished using it. Don't want the battery to go below 15% and possibly cause some damage. Plus that poor processors needs a rest lol.
    My Macbook i leave on but i put in in 'Sleep Mode' at night.

    Mine is on 24/7, generally there's no reason for it not to be. I don't understand the concept of a day when it won't be used much!!!

    That said it's definitely worth the occasional reboot because iOS is good but not flawless. I noticed recently one of my apps was downloading some in-app content really very slowly; at first I assumed it was probably a server issue, but when it persisted I rebooted my iPad and as if by magic got a 10x improvement in download speed.

    Both my iPad pros and my 7 plus are left on 24/7. Only my 15" rMBP is shut off when I'm done with it. I think because it's almost 3 years old and the battery almost certainly would drain every time.

    OK, only when I remember I turned off, so let's say every 48 hours, I think no matter what the battery will suffer if it stays on all time and charging also.

    I never turn my iPad Pro or iPhone 7 Plus off. I do reboot them from time to time when I feel the need arises. Otherwise they just get sat down from time to time and charged as needed. I of course charge my 7 Plus everyday but my iPad Pro, both due to better battery life as well as not being used quite as much, doesn't need to be charged every day. I've been using iPad since the original one and I have never seen a benefit to shutting them down on a daily/nightly basis.

    Same as the "do you leave your phone on thread" I reboot my iPads once a week to clear out cruft and cache.

    What is cruft and cache?

    I understand what cache means but what is cruft? Now I know what it means. Had to ask Siri to find the meaning.

    I leave my Air 2 on all the time and reboot occasionally.

    This is an interesting question, I'm curious why you've asked. The idea of shutting down at night is pretty old-school computing.

    My iPad Pro 9.7 can lasts more than a week without recharging (if I’m not using it heavily) so why would I shut it down?

    Ditto. Mine reboots when there are updates. Other than that it stays on 247.

    I never turn mine off. Not unless I feel like it needs a reboot. And that is pretty much never.

    The same. I can't think of any reason why you would power down other than to reboot.

    Shutting down will kill your device battery. never do that again.

    How does shutting down kill the battery? I understand not wanting it shut down for months at a time but I'm not sure shutting it down at night and then turning back on during the day would have the same effect. Just curious; I literally never shut down my devices unless they need a reboot.
