    Doesn't plugging in the iPad to charge turn it back on anyway? If so, it makes the question moot.

    Plug in the charger, then turn the iPad off.

    My IPad seems to work better after being turned off for a while.

    I have been using the app "Boost Magic" and think it is worthwhile. Has anyone else given it a try?

    Always on, even when on charging. Any problem on that issue? I don't think this will make any harm.

    I leave it off as it charges faster with no drain on it...

    It allows for full as well as quick top offs. Also provides a history of your charging and tips on extending battery life.

    I rarely turn it off even when I'm recharging it.

    Essential, no. If it is off while charging it will charge faster as its not using power...
