... let's the user disconnect wifi during sleep. Since the screen is off, your two biggest battery hogs are off. Maybe the 7 has that setting or part of JB?

For the N7 I'd prefer that it didn't shut completely off because if I can find a dock that'll let me put it on the nightstand as an alarm clock showing weather and possibly some news, stocks, etc, that'd be amazing. And if such an app doesn't exist it might be my first thing to write, but only if the N7 will stay aware when it's in standby mode, unlike the Fire.
Sam, didn't know if you found a dock, saw this one the other day. It says it works with or without a case.http://www.mobilefun.com/35866-google-nexus-7-case-compatible-desktop-sync-and-charge-cradle.htm?utm_source=froogle&utm_medium=comparison&utm_campaign=froogle&referer=FRNot sure about status. If you click on "Notify me when product is back in stock", they'll send you an email.
I took mine to work last night and left it on standby for 12 hours today. When I checked the battery it had only lost 1% so I think I'm just going to leave it on like I did with my iPad.
Maybe I missed it, but the manual does not show where you can disconnect wifi during sleep.
Good eyes! Glad you found that, it will help a lot.
