ScreenShot not Working
Hope someone can help. I used to be able to take perfect screenshots by pressing two buttons simultaneously. Now, when I do it, the screen goes black and locks the iPad. I have top unlock it again with the slider. Any ideas how to fix it?

Sounds like your home button is acting up. You could try using a soft home button
Go to Settings/General/Accessibility/Assistive Touch. Turn it ON.
At the top of the screen, you will see a white dot appear. Touch it, and it will expand into 4 software buttons. One of them is HOME. Touch it and press sleep/wake at the same time and it should grab the screenshot. I just checked it and it works.
Only trouble is, the software buttons appear on the screenshot.
Just wondering if you are holding the On/Off and Home buttons in for too long when doing a screenshot? Because that is an early stage of what happens when you reset the iPad (something Apple recommends should be done about monthly anyway)

When taking a screen shot you should be holding down those same buttons very briefly, but not so long that the screen blacks out. May not be the answer, but just a thought.
