If your iPad is fully turned off (as in, you did the "slide to power off" maneuver), then you will not receive notifications until you turn the iPad back on.

However, if you put the iPad to sleep, by press the button opposite the Home button, then it will continue to check for or receive notifications.

Hope this helps.
