Can't power off but need to change screen
I have an iPad 2 with a broken screen. I am unable to power it off because the digitizer is unresponsive in the area of the red 'power off' slider.
I have discharged the battery as far as I can but it obviously still has power in it because when I press and hold the power button the battery symbol with flashing red showing battery empty appears.
My questions are:
Is there any other method of powering off the iPad?
Are there any serious consequences of changing the digitizer whilst there is still power?
All answers gratefully received.

Is this a good question?
