    Watching movies etc

    When watching documentaries or shows on two different apps (ABC AND HBO to GO) my IPAD1 will turn off from the app return to the app page and I will have to start over or try to relocate my place I was viewing. To attempt to problem solve myself I made sure my battery was fully charged. That didn't stop it from occurring. This didn't happen before and I am wondering why it seems to be happening more frequently and what might I do to correct it? I like watching programs on my IPAD. I was also wondering if i have too many apps.....Any feedback would be appreciated.

    How long has it been since you restarted you're iPad? First make sure to close all apps (double click the home button, then press and hold an app until they wiggle, tap the minus sign on each).

    To restart, hold the power button down until the power slide appears, turn it off and wait a bit, then turn it back on by pressing the power button again.

    If the apps still crash, try a reboot.

    To reboot, hold the power button and home button down together and hold them down until the apple appears, then wait a few minutes this time. You should be all set after that.

    After a while the iPad can get "clogged up" and these methods can clear it up. I do a restart or reboot occasionally when things start to act a little screwy.

    Thank you. I didn't realize that rebooting is something to do periodically when the IPAD starts acting up. I did the reboot and watched my program without interruptions. Thanks again! Love this forum!

    You're welcome, glad it worked! I've learned tons of stuff from the great members here. If you don't already have it, check out the iPad forum app, Discussions For iPad, in the app store. It's one of my most used!

    Cheers!
