Do you turn off the camera after previewing, or do you let it go to sleep?

Just turning off the camera after each use goes a long way to helping battery life.

I normally turn it off if I know I'm not going to take the next shot soon, but I will have it on or leave it in sleep mode if I know there is a series of shots coming. But I always thought turn a camera on & off will eat up more battery as vs if I just leave it in sleep mode. Not correct?
