I have had my I pad for a couple of months now and it will no longer charge. I have read a couple of reviews. I have tried charging it with the wall unit charger it came with, I have tried to sync it with my nearly brand new Mac Book Pro, and several different electrical outlets, etc. Sometimes I can get it to say Not Charging and I guess it will charge in sleep mode that way, but i can barely get it to say that, only if I power the whole unit off, and then plug it in, then it says not charging. Any ideas out there I pad Other OS I pad...|ipad-charge
