By leaving my bluetooth and wifi on even if i'm not using either, will this deplete my battery life more than if I keep them off? Anyone know? Thx

bluetooth definitely. Wifi only if you're surfing or checking the icons like weather, stocks, youtube.

I've been leaving both of those turned on and I haven't noticed any shorter battery life than with them off. Your usage may vary, just try it out and see.
I haven't noticed any difference with wifi enabled so far, haven't turned on bluetooth yet though.

I've noticed a huge difference if I leave bluetooth off. It is constantly trying to pair w/ other devices and that drains the battery. You can't turn the pairing off.
