To answer last post it is the original charger, yes. Been plugged into the wall outlet since I bought my tablet.
including OEM cable?

Maybe I'm lucky, but I've never had an issue with charging. I carry a Buffalo USB power adapter with 3 500mA slots and one 2A slot. The 2A slot will fully charge my TPT overnight whether it is on or off. I even use one of the retractable USB cables, so my TPT travel pack is quite compact :-) The dock does charge it much faster. 500mA power sources seem useless for the TPT.
If I turn my TPT off and then plug in the USB power, the screen turns on and it shows me the battery icon and then the screen goes back off.
I don't know what the red LED does because I keep my TPT in a folio, but if I remember correctly Lenovo fumbled this in one of the OTA updates and hasn't fixed it since.
Seanp, have you updated your ROM since starting to use the tablet again? The OTA updates may fix some of your problems, but it does sound like your first charge has to be a full charge and it may take longer. Give it a few days (I know that sounds excessive . . .)
My TPT did spontaneously wake before just as some people's powered off. I think it was a faulty power button in my case. Eventually the power button fully broke and I sent it in (witha 6-day turn-around and a full system board replacement). The system board was replaced, and now it wakes, sleeps, turns on and off just as it should with no issues (other than the still very weak, but finally functional GPS, unnecessary capacitive buttons I hit with my hand while using the stylus, a camera that never takes the time to find the focus, the lack of a full backup solution, no root, etc ;-)
