    My iPad2 has never charged when plugged into my computer. I believe that is how it is supposed to be. I always plugin mine to the wall. It has been fine. I don't think a regular USB port can provide enough power for the iPad2.

    My iPad charges fine on the computer. Perhaps it's a USB issue.

    Don't accept that he computer can't give it enough power. It should charge when connected. Make sure you're going directly into the USB port and not using anything else.

    I found this in the ipad2 manual:

    Charge the battery: The best way to charge the iPad battery is to connect iPad to a
    power outlet using the included Dock Connector to USB Cable and 10W USB power
    adapter. When you connect iPad to a USB 2.0 port on a Mac with the Dock Connector
    to USB Cable, iPad may charge slowly while syncing.
    Important: The iPad battery may drain instead of charge if iPad is connected to a PC,
    to a computer thats turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, to a USB hub, or to the
    USB port on a keyboard.
    If your Mac or PC doesnt provide enough power to charge iPad, a Not Charging
    message appears in the status bar. To charge iPad, disconnect it from your computer
    and connect it to a power outlet using the included Dock Connector to USB Cable and
    10W USB Power Adapter.

    Not all computers will charge the iPad2 through USB.

    Here's the link to the manual if you would like to read it for yourself.

    It does charge, but if and only if the power button is pressed and the screen goes black.
    It won't charge when the screen is active.
