You are confusing the ClockworkMod screen with superuser screen. If you shutdown your phone with the USB cable plugged in, you will always be taken to the ClockworkMod screen because the original HTC Recovery module that contains the Battery charging icon is no longer there (replaced by ClockworkMod).

If you search this forum, there is a new version of ClockworkMod that you can install that will give you the battery charging icon back. I believe the version is ClockworkMod 2.5.1.7.

The other option is just leave the phone powered on when you charge it.

Unfortunately the process is not that easy on an Aria. The actual process involves unrooting your phone by installing a 2.1 RUU and then running Unrevoked to re-root the phone. During the Unrevoked process, you would be able to choose a custom recovery to install and at that point you would choose the download zip.

To me it's not worth the effort. I just leave my phone on all the time while it's charging and that way the phone will go into sleep more and turn off the screen.
