the only operation that removes it fully - so that you can switch it on & read while it continues to charge - is to go the My computer select drive right click select eject route.
Your initial post referred to unplugging the Kindle, not leaving it plugged in to continue charging while you use it. And using the system tray to select "safely remove" will disconnect the Kindle as far as file read/write operations go, so that it can be safely unplugged from the PC without risking corrupting the file system.

or is it safe to just pull the plug once all transfers are complete ?

found it - thanks - have had the keyboard for years & never knew what that strange button to the right of the space bar actually did, until now ! that's going to be really useful in lots of circumstances.
