    Hmm, kind of unusual, assuming that you left it in sleep mode, are you using a proper charger accessory and are you charging through a socket that supplies enough juice?

    That's very weird, I haven't encountered this before so I can't help much, I'm sorry.

    But you can try to download ASUS Ai Charger in your Desktop or Laptop and try to charge your iPad from there, tell me how it works.

    And I guess someone else will have to resolve this issue.

    Let the iPad run until it shuts down. Then try charging it again without interruption and using the charger and cable that came with it. It should take 4 to 6 hour for an iPad 2 if everything is working correctly.

    Apple recommends that you do this about once a month in order to keep the percentage indicator calibrated. If it still does not work and your hardware warrantee still valid try contacting Apple.

    Maybe it has something to do with the charger, I had an old iPad charger, it bent at the top where the plug was, and the charger couldn't charge because of it, so I had to replace the charger, because it was very difficult to get it to charge, it took me like 10 minutes each time to get it to charge, so I would suggest checking to see if there's anything strange about the charger.
