Many iPad users have probably realized that when they connect their iPad to the USB port for charging and leave the iPad off things work fine. However, when the iPad is charging and the user tries to use the iPad power demand can be too high for some machines.




If you own a Gigabyte mainboard, the company has announced a new driver update for the device that will allow users to charge the iPad and use it at the same time. The update is called the On/Off charge update.


It can be downloaded on the Gigabyte site now and works with Intel X58, P55, H55, and H57 mainboards. AMD 800 chipset boards are also supported by the update.
