Depends on the tablet, depends on the OS.
The WookieTab under Win10 goes into Sleep mode when I shut it (with the KB attached), press the power button, or do nothing with it for a few minutes. So it disables the WiFi, slows the CPU to a crawl, and does pretty much nothing except monitor the power button / KB Open latch magnet.
But an Android Tablet doesn't - it turns off the display, but keeps everything else running - checking the email every 15 minutes, looking for updates every 10 seconds if there is an Adobe product installed, you know the kind of thing.

So an Android tablet with the power button pushed still uses a fair amount of power, and this can flatten the battery. If you hold the power button, it brings up a "power off" option, which does exactly what it says on the tin.

What type of tablet are we talking?
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

Straw Poll

Have you ever taught anyone to code?
"Teaching" can mean from start to finish, or simply just helping someone learning to code work through a coding issue (like helping with homework or being a support tutor)
And how did it go?
