What exactly do you mean by "turn the battery off"? Are you trying to turn the tablet completely off?

Turn the brightness down as far as reasonably possible and turn off all the radios (WiFi, Cell, Gps, Bluetooth etc.)

Thank you for your good suggestions. I already turned the brightness down, now I will check the others and see what they are set at.

You can also disable any automatic syncing of any live widgets like weather and disable mail syncing/auto checking.

Any one app you are having problems with finding the settings in, just ask. You can also just put the tablet into airplane mode which will still allow you to read anything on the tablet but will disable a lot of other "stuff".

Thank you. I think it is in airplane mode but I can't find my way back to the settings that show the battery, wi-fi, etc.

Airplane mode does not disable use of the tablet but it does disable communications. It's not the same thing as blanking the screen, (sleep mode), or turning it off.

Thank you, I am beginning to think I am just too old to learn how to use it, but I am going to keep trying. lol
