My wife has my 3 year old 24" iMac an it shows "Not Charging" when her iPad is plugged in. Whereas my new 27" iMac charges just fine. I thought it was only PCs that wouldn't charge.

it all depends on how much power is going to the USB, my macbook would charge it fine but not through a powered USB hub, it's all trial and error at the moment.

It *is* charging with the screen off. As soon as you take a look at the screen, it can't charge.

It's a lower powered USB hub inside the older iMacs, like most PC's.
