Hi and welcome to the Forum!
I would try a restart here and if that is not successful then a reset. A reset in this instance will not change anything on your iPad and is akin to rebooting a PC.
Restart - Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will restart. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running well. Now see if it is operating.
Reset - Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. Let us know if it is now working.

If the reset doesn't work, to me it sounds as if the magnetic switch for the cover is stuck, try turning it off in settings and then see if it makes any difference.
