    Does anyone have this issue? When I plug it in and turn it off, it will turn back on no matter how many times I turn it off while its plugged in...

    So I tested this at work with my iPhone (which I assume would work similarly). I turned off my iPhone, then docked it to my power supply. The iPhone turned on automatically. Think this is normal behavior.

    Edit: Nevermind. I placed it on the dock and shut it down and it remained off. Yours does seem to have an issue. Will test with my iPad when I get home tonight.

    I know the iPhone will do this too, EXCEPT.... If you plug in your iPhone while its on, THEN turn it off, it will stay off.....

    If I do the same thing with the iPad, it will turn on even after I turn it off after plugging it in.

    I have had 2 iPads. Both do the same thing. If I turn off, then plug in via AC, it will turn back on.

    Why Turn It Off?

    Why do people power down their iPads/iPhones? The only time I power mine off is when I accidentally run the battery all the way down or to reset it. There really is no need to power either one of them down at night when charging.

    I turn mine off so I don't get calls while I'm sleeping

    The OP isn't shutting down just turning off the screen.

    Yes I do want to shut down. Also, keeping it off if I'm not using it saves power, even if its just a little bit. Guess its a preference thing...
