    You can try looking into your mail app. See if it's set to push. that means your iPad reaches out every so often to look for mail.


    Also look in hte settings for notifications and see if there's stuff turned on that you don't need.


    If you have iOS7 then there can also be background app update and background app refresh that may be running without you even knowing they're running.

    There are a few things that can run battery down.

    Make sure Bluetooth is off.  (Each time you allow location settings in an app, it turns Bluetooth back on)

    If wifi connection is weak and the iPad searches for connection, that can run it down.  Update or replace your router.

    Close apps running in the background.   Double click the home button, swipe pages up to close app.

    Change notification settings so they are less often, manual.

    Put your iPad in airplane mode when away from wifi connection.
