    Sounds like you exceeded max number of home screens and icons. How many apps do you have installed?

    Your apps are there just no more room to display them. Create some folders and place icons in them to open desktop space.
    Background apps are hiding for good reason. Seek them out, close them. The world will be a better place.

    Yep just stack an icon on top of another. Restart required to display lost icons

    No you can't. It's kind of the point of iTunes Match, that the music is in the cloud and downloaded on demand. If you need your entire library on your device you should sync it on there from iTunes on your PC rather than trying to download it all on the iPad via iCloud.

    Hope that helps.
