    I usually charge my iPad overnight and I prefer to have it switched off. I have noticed that if I switch it off, then plug it into the charger, it switches back on. So I tried plugging it in, then turning it off, but that doesn't work either. It just switches itself straight back on again.

    How do I get it to stay turned off whilst charging?

    I've heard many people say the iPad won't shut off during charging, but when I plug the charger in and turn the iPad off, it stays off. Try it again; there's a possibility the charger came off slightly and was pushed back, thus turning on the iPad.

    Plug it in first. Then hold the power button down until you get the "slide to turn off"prompt. Then slide it. I know, Apple should have made it easier.

    That's what I am doing. It shuts down, then 10 seconds later it starts up again!

    I like to have it off too so I don't get woken up by notifications from iPF! :D I will get the most random stuff around midnight.
    If the battery is below like 20% it will turn back on. Weird, but that's what I have found. I used to run it under 20% and it would turn back on. But now I charge it every night and it doesn't get below like 30-45%. Experiment and see.

    My iPad does this too at the moment. I'm sure there is something installed which causes this. I had it for several months, then it stopped doing it for several months, and now it has been doing it again since 4.3.1. I've seen it happen on both stock and jailbroken iPads, so I don't think it's anything to do with jailbreaking.
    I'm stumped as to what it actually is though! If I ever find out I'll let you know.

    Mine's done that since brand new (~6 months), I just figured it was supposed to do that. Never really bothered me enough to look into it.
