My PLaybook doesnt seem to be taking a charge. I left it charging all night with 10% battery life and it is still at 10% this morning. I turned it off when it was charging. Does this shut down the charging process?

I should have searched the forums. Read that the Playbook has to be turned on to charge
#1 THATS IS THE DUMBEST THING I HAVE EVER HEARD. HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE SOMETHING HAVING TO E TURNED ON TO CHARGE
#2 WHEN I WAS WATCHING THE HOW TO VIDEO ON THE BLACKBERRY SITE I THOUGHT IT WAS A WASTE OF TIME THEY EXPLAINED HOW TO PLUG IN AND CHARGE THE PLAYBOOK AS CHARGING IS GENERALLY AKIN TO "TAKE THE TABLET OUT OF THE BOX.
BUT IF THEY WERE GOING TO TAKE THE TIME TO PRODUCE A VIDEO ON CHARGING, IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN WISE TO MENTION THE THING HAS TO BE TURNED ON TO CHARGE

Granted, I didnt read all the threads why being turned on is required, so maybe thats not the dumbest thing in the world as I mentioned.
BUT IT IS A MAJOR ERROR THAT THE FACT WAS BURIED ON PAGE 29 OF A USER MANUAL AND NOT ON THE OPENING VIDEO.
Sorry, but my capital letter frustration is meant for RM, not you haha

if that is true, I have disproven it.
I had battery level of 86%. put it on a charge and then turned it off. I returned 45mintues. booted it up and it was at 97%.

The charging can only happen while powered on.
possible you were in standby and not powered off

Hmm.. when I first pulled it out of the box, it was at 57%... did the update, then i powered it completely off.. plugged it in... a couple hours later, i booted it up (took forever) and was at 96%...
Since I've yet to see any of these posts indicating why, can you quickly explain the reasoning? If it's something like "protection from over charging" i call BS.. that's a hardware feature, not software.
I'd tend to agree that 1) it's rediculous, 2) it is charging while off (not in standby)
