I am not really sure about this but I will give you some thoughts, so you can look further. I believe that although both your G4 ibook and G4 powerbooks are plugged in, your USB 2.0 ports do not have power so your iPod does not charge as it should. Now I think that your G3 ibooks have a USB 1.1 so maybe there would still be power on those while its plugged in. Same thing happens to my Mac mini: My iPod is charging when its on but it stops when its off although its plugged in.
Someone more experienced in how exactly the USB ports work in G4 and G3 models would be able to give you an answer.
Hope I helped!
