    Everytime I plug the ipad to charge it switches on automatically, is there any way to charge it while it's off? (So it will charge faster).

    Maybe i'm missing something...

    Heh it always does that when you plug the cable in. Ignore it and it goes back to sleep. Tiptoe quietly away.......

    Yes, plugging it in wakes it up.... but
    It should turn off after a few minutes.

    Or you should be able to press the Sleep/Wake button and turn it off

    I don't want it sleeping, I want it completely off, so next the morning I need to hold power button and it will boot with apple logo etc.

    It is just Called a sleep/wake button.

    That is as "off" as the iPad gets.

    No, holding the off button for 4 seconds switches it off completely. That's diffeerent from sleeping (no energy being used at all).

    Never bothered with that.

    The standard top right button is all I use as the power consumption when sleeping is negligible.

    Is it? If you leave the ipad unplugged at 100% battery at night, what percentage do you have in the morning?

    You will still get 100%. I always do that. My iPad's battery last for 11-12 hours. With wifi on. Amazing isn't it.

    I've never checked it since I'm almost never at 109% at night. If you are at 100% at night why don't you just turn it completely off one night and reboot in AM and see what percentage you are at. I leave mine on sleep at night (I am never at 100% at night unless I've had it plugged in while I used it---sometimes I do that if I'm close enough to the charger) and if I want to reboot I just do it manually. Works fine for me. I don't feel the need to reboot more than once a week but I guess there's no reason you can't do it each morning.
