If I leave my wireless control connected to the system, will it still charge after it's off?

No it wont. You can however plug it into the USB port on your computer to charge it. I do it all the time with my controllers and even my bluetooth mic.

I never understood why sony didn't make it a feature to be able to charge while the system is off. I also own a PS3, 60Gb. If you bought a powered USB hub you could also use that to charge. (Afaik)

Yeah Sony dropped the ball on that one. The good thing is I have my laptop on 24/7 so I can charge my controller or my mic.

energizer also has stands made for the PS3 and the Wii you just sit the wii motes on the stand and they charge until charged reed means charging and green they are done same concept for the PS3 except they plug into the stand and hang there, the only thing they are pricey lol i think around 30.00 at walmart

here is what they look like http://reviews.cnet.com/power-devices-batteries/energizer-power-play-charging/4505-3509_7-33351193.html
