    Default iPad charging.

    I bought my wife an iPad last yr for Christmas. I have my Macbook Pro and iPhone 4s, so i don't really fool with her iPad much. I connected the iPad to my PC yesterday to update it to iOS 5. I looked at the iPad and in the top corner i saw "not charging". Will the iPad not charge when connected to a PC or Mac?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    It will if the screen is off. It's because the USB port on the computer doesn't provide enough power to charge while the screen is on. It's why the iPad has a different charger than the iPod Touche and iPhone.
