    Powering down the Xoom

    I'm sittin' here watchin' Wild Hogs and a thought popped in my head, is there any
    reason I should power down my Xoom?
    I recall on my now "hardly used" Droid, I would need to power down to to "give it a rest".
    Is there anything the would tell me that I need to "give it a rest"?
    What does powering down the The Mighty Xoom actually do?

    I power mine down every night. Since it can't receive calls or anything, I just like to think I save more battery and give the device some shutdown time. I sleep about 8hrs a night and have school the next morning so the device is untouched for roughly 12 or 13hrs.

    I never turn off my Incredible, but since it's a phone I of course leave it on. a wifi only device, i tend to let them take a break and power them down overnight.

    If anything, powering down refreshes the memory and it may be snappier than if you just leave it on standby overnight.

    My Xoom stays on all the time. I probably should power it down but I don't. Can't hurt to power the mighty xoom down.

    I rarely power mine down, there's no reason to.

    I have the 3G version and I usually leave mine on all the time. However, I do sometimes give it some sleepytime if I don't use the device for an extensive amount of time.

    When I go to sleep, my Xoom goes to sleep (but not powered down).

    I power mine down when I go to work or gone from home for a while. No need for it to be using battery when I am not there and my phone is receiving all the same information while i am on the go.

    This way it goes nearly a week without needing a charge...
