How do I handle a performance review when I'm likely to leave the company in the next month or so?

I have my annual performance review tomorrow. My boss has given me reason to expect that I'll be receiving a raise and perhaps even a promotion. There are several issues with my current role that I think I could easily negotiate to be fixed within the review.
Here's the challenge: because of these issues, I have been interviewing for a new job and am likely to accept an offer in the next 2-4 weeks.
Given this possibility (probability), I'm hesitant to waste my time or my boss' negotiating for perks I won't get to enjoy. At the same time, I don't want to count all my chickens before they're hatched. I'm also worried that NOT negotiating will raise red flags for my boss, as we've agreed to table some issues until the review.
Thoughts on how best to handle this delicately?
