had my Playbook for a week now and like it a lot, can't wait to see what will be in 2.0.
i have a question though about the battery. Last night I 'switched off' the playbook rather than standby and lost a load of battery over night. Is this normal? I would have thought that it would be using very little power in 'off' mode.

Well yes, it is normal that PlayBook absorbs Battery Life even in STANDBY mode, because in this mode, it just keeps your screen on Sleep mode, but the device still keep updating your Mails and BBM.
So its better that you Shut Down your device completely for saving the battery life.
Hope this resolves your Problem!

What the OP states is that his PB is draining battery even though he shuts it down (turn off) overnight and not in standby mode.
This doesn't seem to be normal if you only leave it shut off overnight.
I leave mine in standby mode but check the power level in the evening and recharge if needed.
A few days ago I left it in my car overnight and the cold drained the battery flat and it was a pain to get it back up as it would not get out of standby.
Had to charge it for a few hours and then do the 3 button reset.
I hope that OS2 will include a fix for this and if the battery is dead allow it to be recgarge and get up and running instantly.

I'll try the full shut down again tonight and make sure it's at 100% before I do so to see if there is any loss.
Itching for the 2.0 upg.
Watched the vids on CrackBerry - looks promising!

I suggest you do this:
You get your PB fully charged tonight, then shut it off, check out the next morning, if your battery lost much then i think you should get your battery changed,
I have to agree with this poster. I had 82% charge last night turned itbon 24 hours still at 82%.
