Is normal for the tablet to turn on when power is plugged in everytime?kinda beats the purpose of trying to fully charge it if it turns on and uses power every time it pluged in.I have capacitive ChildPad: kasty-arnchilpadc-40-04-1G.zip installed to.Thanks
I don't have a ChildPad, but I believe it's normal: most Archos and Arnova tablets behave like that.
You should be able to turn off the screen but doing a quick press on the Power button, the tablet will still be on and charging. Even if you don't, the charger will provide more juice than the tablet consumes, so it's charging in the end

I have two childpads - resistive, they both turn on/boot when the power lead is plugged in. Pressing the power button briefly turns of the screen. One gets to 100%, the other only seems to make it to 99%, although both show the green "charged" light.
We tend to leave them plugged in as there is significant battery drain when on standby and the boot sequence takes to long to shut down each day.
We don't use wifi on them as they are for the kids who are 2 years. Wifi is off by default.
Also I use "Auto AirPlane". This puts the pad into airplane mode when it is in standby - just in case I was checking my email on one and forgot to turn off WIFI.
Standby probably loses a few percent an hour so no good for occasional use over a couple of days - the battery would die. Not sure what others??
I have an ASUS transformer and it goes for days, in and out and standby without needing a charge. Child pads are never far away from a charger ....
Anyone like to share their battery life?
Ie 100% battery -> Unplug and put in standby <- how long before 0% battery??
This bugged the life out of me too as the eerie glow all night while charging was a nuisance and seemed to take hours to charge fully.
Figured it out eventually 🙂
Go to settings, developer options then on the right of the screen
3rd option down "stay awake" uncheck this box as this says screen will never sleep when charging.
