    I can plug my iPhone into the wall charger, then turn it off ( in hopes it charges faster, plus so emails don't 'ding' while I'm sleeping)

    I can't do the same with my iPad. Every time I try to turn the iPad off while it's charging, it starts to shut down, but then immediately turns back on. Is this normal?

    I think the reason is pretty obvious.

    My iPad shuts down just fine after plugging it in.

    I think thats the key.
    I remember reading somewhere you have to plug it in, THEN turn it off..
    Or turn it off, then plug it in.. haha.. it was one of the two ;)

    Should be plug in and THEN turn off. Works for me. Also to the OP... why not just silence your iPhone at night?

    Works correctly, or turns back on after you shut it off?

    If I have it on when applying power, then try to turn it off, it will restart itself. Not sure about the opposite case (yet).

    Turn it off, or put it into sleep mode? I don't think turning an iPad off will make it charge appreciably faster.
