When I hook up my pad to my laptop, in the upper right corner is says "not charging". I thought it was supposed to also charge through your computer when hooked up, not just by the ac charger. Do I have some setting not correct? Thanks folks for all your support. :)
I charge the iPad with the wall charger and use the computer to sync. If you search "not charging", you'll find numerous posts exposing why.
The iPAD needs almost 2 AMP s to charge.

It is "Asus USB Charger 1.00.06"
Works great. But nevertheless, it is recommended to use only external charger .
I used mine on the LAP Top just as a 2nd choice.
Instead of saying, "Not Charging", it should say, "Charging, but really slowly". The thing to be careful of when keeping your iPad hooked up to your computer, especially if its a laptop is that if you have the power saver mode set to put the computer to sleep or in hibernation mode, it will (in most cases) stop charging your iPad. I have my main PC set to shut off the monitor after a certain length of time, but the computer itself always stays on.

That would be cool. Nice one C4.
Must be a plist we can edit somewhere to enable this cool hack! I'm off to search for it now...

Well thanks folks for the reply's. I have been using the ac charger to crank her up to full. Didn't realize the pad needs that much juice to charge from a pc. Gotta love this forum! :)
