    Have you tried closing all Aps? Double click on start button and all Aps Will sporę across the bottom. Hold on the first until a cross appears and then click on each one to close Them.

    Here's the advice from the Apple website.

    "Reset iPad. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears."

    This happens to me every so often as well (happened last night even). I'm not sure what causes it, but it doesn't appear to point towards a defective unit. Must just be a quirk with iOS.

    It happened to me once after someone pushed and held down the on/off button. I plugged in to my Macbook and it woke right up. Don't hold down the off button just push and release.

    One problem that I've had is that I normally set 'Autolock' to 'Never' (yes, I know, bad idea!).

    So I put my iPad to sleep and go to bed - of course, iPad by my bed as well as my Bluetooth keyboard - hey, might have a sleepless night or get some great ideas (OK - not very often) and need to note them down.

    However, I've found that, if I accidentally touch the Bluetooth keyboard keys, it (of course) 'wakes up' the Bluetooth keyboard and that wakes up the iPad and *takes it straight to the Home screen* - no slider control to confirm that I want to switch the iPad on. So now my iPad is on and the Autolock is set to 'Never' and the inevitable happens....battery gradually goes flat....and, with the Apple case on and the flap closed it acts as an incredibly good screen shield, to the extent that it's difficult to detect if the screen is on even in a darkened bedroom.

    Moral of the story is make sure you don't have Autolock set to never at night with a Bluetooth keyboard by your bedside.....

    PS bought a spare power adaptor to keep my iPad connected to the power outlet all night......

    I'm having a different problem with my iPad 2. It's doing a lot of freezing. Email attachments are not downloading, had to do six resets in one night. I'm so sure I will be returning this to the store for an exchange.

    I am very sorry to hear that. You say that email attachments are not downloading - could you give us more details? I'm an 'early morning owl' so I can work on this tonight...I love a challenge...as much detail as possible..my wife is away on business and, hey, what else do I have to do....

    Don't panic - with the iPad Forum here to help - no problem can't be fixed!
