Yes it is OK to use the device when it is charging.

But more details are needed to debug the problem. 

- Could you share with us the version of software you are running.
(Control Panel -> Device -> About Product).

- Have you installed any 3rd-party applications? (Application Manager ->
Show installed applications)

- How do you switch OFF the device?

- Can you install xterminal and send us the output of /proc/bootreason?
