    That's odd. Have you tried restarting and/or reseting the iPad?


    -------------
    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart. takes a bit longer than a restart.

    So that' a bug Apple need to fixed on iOS 6. Right? Nothing is prefect. But if apple really recommends restarting ipad once a month, as you said, LOL, i think i restart it almost everyday... LOL

    All computers accumulate errors as they run. Good operating systems running a few solid apps can run for months or even years. Servers do this and stay up for months, or even years. However, the more apps you run, the less solid the apps, and the more you use them, the quicker the errors accumulate.

    I month is about right for light to moderate use of an iPad with well written apps, which is why Apple also says 'as needed'.

    I restart mine about once a week, if I think of it. Sooner if I think the performance is lacking or apps start crashing more often than usual.

    It's really not any different than owning any other computer. Sometimes they just have to be restarted.

    Perfect, thanks, the time is now back. No one had told me to do that before.
