Whenever I connect my iPad to my Mac - I get Not Charging next to the battery icon.

Is there a technique I need to charge it as I don't have much battery charge left?

are you plugged directly into the mac, or via a usb hub?

Hmm I had this problem whenever i plugged it into my Belkin Dual USB port wall charger. As soon as I used the factory iPad one it worked. Same with the USB on the side of my keyboard, it didn't work either. Haven't tried directly in the back though.

Only newer Macs with the higher-powered USB ports will charge it. You might be able to charge it with the screen off.

Yeah it should charge with your screen off.
