    Here is what happening when there is the "unlock problem"
    1. The functional iPad is locked(using the sleep button or autolock)
    2. When trying to unlock it, by pressing the sleep button, it doesn't do anything(black screen).
    3. Pressing home + sleep (hard reset) does nothing
    4. When connected to charger/usb in that state, it produces a constant and periodic sound.

    How to unlock it:
    1. Sometimes holding home + sleep, does the hard reset and it restarts(apple logo appears).

    NOTE:
    1. When in black screen, iTunes detects it, files can be synced.
    Have you considered setting auto lock to never rather than 2 minutes until the problem is identified and corrected?
    Background apps are hiding for good reason. Seek them out, close them. The world will be a better place.

    The device is not jailbroken.

    Even if the app was the problem, the iPad was restored in iTunes, the only third-party app installed there now is Skype, if I'm not wrong.

    Well just wanted to check all bases. I'd recommend what we stated before. Make an appointment with an apple genius and have them take a look at it. Be sure to have your data on your iPad backed up before going. They may swap it out with a new iPad.

    Well, there are not many Apple Bars in Europe... Already called the apple care, they told me to call the hardware section on Monday.


    Thanks for the help

    I had a similar problem on my iphone where the slider was unresponsive. What I found the problem to be was that I had gone into settings and selected a larger font for prinitng on the screen. Once I turned that off the problem went away. Not sure if the ipad has the same selection in settings though but it does have the same OS.
    Regards

    I don't know if this is the answer but are you sure you have not accidentally turned on zoom? (triple click home / sleepbutton).

    I just turned mine on, let my iPad go to sleep and then clicked the home/sleep button and I could not see the slider because zoom was still on.

    Try triple clicking home/sleep button, it may just be that.

    Let me know
