When turn down the volume on my iPad 2 all the way down, It still makes a sound when notifications are received. Is there any way to globally disable notifications sounds ?

In Settings | General | Sounds, you can either set the sound level of the alerts, or choose that it will be affected by the Volume buttons (which is off by default).
