Spink10:yes I do have an apple store nearby.
Pocobear: I checked my settings and it is set at 2 min.
Tim: I am at 2 min. but cannot understand if I should change this or leave it. As you can all see I am new to this stuff.
Twerppoet: Yesterday when I recharged and it blinks on I saw that I had 79% of battery left so I do not think that was the problem even though after bringing ot back up to 100% my IPAD opened.
No problems since then but if this happens again, I will go back to the store with it and see what they say.
