Turn off or sleep

Probably a dumb qn, but i presume that when finished reading you just put the device to sleep as opposed to powering off totally?

Personal choice but most go for sleep... my 505 hasn't been off in 3+ years except when I needed a reset...

I prefer sleep mode as well. Turning my reader on and off every time I put it down seems too much work. Plus, I have some really cool wallpapers to show off while my reader is enjoying some well deserved rest !

I put my 350 to sleep, after 2 days it automatically shuts off fully, so works well

Sleep is the most convenient choice to me when finished reading.

I don´t do anything. Just stop reading, and storing it away.
So the reader will switch into the sleep mode automaticially, also shutting off later on.
