    Not really sure how exactly to phrase this without sounding awkward or anything, but the first few days I had my iPad, I charged it over night with the iPad completely turned off. However, in the morning, when I turned it on, it would have the connect to iTunes display. Nothing would be deleted on it or anything if I did connect it to iTunes or anything.

    I just eventually stopped turning it off to charge. Does anyone know why it does that exactly, or a solution? I would really prefer to turn it off at night, but if there's no solution, then I suppose I'm fine with leaving it turned on...

    Thanks. :)

    Charging an iPad normally turns it on, but I don't know why you'd be getting the connect to iTunes display.

    I'd suggest just plugging in your iPad and charging it without turning it off. Less complicated that way. Hopefully that resolves the iTunes display issue.

    you don't need to completely shut it down every night. Just put it to sleep and let it charge.

    Simple fix, never power off.

    It really uses VERY little power in sleep mode. Unless you have a lot of push apps and email checks. Even then you will only use a few percentage points on power.
