Default Sleep Vs Shutdown ? Sony Xperia Tablet Z

Hi what mode do you keep your tablet in when not using it ? As this whole last week, my tablet has been sleeping and im thinking is it worth me leaving it on sleep ? While im not using the tablet ? As i do lose about 6% battery over 14 hour period.. So my question is shall i shut the Sony Xperia Tablet Z down or leave it too sleep ? What do you guys and gals do ?

I keep my me in sleep mode all the time but just toggle the Airplane mode On when I am done for the day. It will dramatically increase your battery life! When ready to use just switch it back to WiFi.

Hello,
That's right that "shutdown & start" decreases battery, but long sleep gives me problems like slower wifi or unstable, slower apps, lags,...
I think it depends which apps/widgets you have.
We use multi-users.
The tablet is not rooted, everything is "Sony official" (not like on Xperia S that needed to be... refreshed).
Regards,
Vinz

You can always shut it down before you start charging it and when it's done you got fresh start and full battery.

Hi !
Updated answer
With the updated tablet
Since the new version of Android, you probably noticed that shutting down takes a long long time...
So, now, I use Sleep mode BUT I cut Wifi before. It changed my way to use the tab because my battery is better and I didn't notice any lags, Wifi problems,...

I leave mine to sleep, loose 0% overnight with stamina mode enabled, If i shut it down and restart in the morning it looses about 3-5% during shutdown and rebooting.

Stamina mode really does work! Don't forget to enable it. I think there is no need to go into airplane mode but I do it regardless and battery life is really good!
