If you are patient, it will work through the PC. Alternatively, there are patches you can do to your mother board drivers to correct this, however it is risky unless you are using the right driver and know what you are doing. If you apply this incorrectly, you can spawn some very lovely BSODs.

The iPad charges if it's asleep, albeit slowly. You can power it off (hold Home and Sleep until the prompt appears) to get it to charge quicker.

I left my charger at the office on Thursday evening, so I've been doing this all weekend, and it works
