Apparently they no longer charge when turned off (except in China).
I never turn mine off, so didn't notice the change.
In any case, the battery is not being discharged if the phone is on while charging. Some power from the charger is used to run the phone; the rest is used to charge the battery.
Before charging, I'm around 40% then i turn it off while charging, and when I turn it back on in the morning, it reads 100% and is fully charged.
That's how it should work, but there are some reports of it not, and there is the Apple reference to it only working on Chinese iPhones. Maybe it's just some iPhone 4s. My 3GS with 4.1 does charge when off. (Connecting the charger turns it on, so you have to turn if off after connecting.)
