    My ipad is always "on" or awake

    My ipad used to just go into a trance or whatever-sleep mode I guess; after a few minutes or so of not using it would go black and I could pick it up and just press the button the right or bottom (I tend to use in landscape) and then slide the thing at the bottom to start working again. Now the screen never goes dark and the battery just runs down. What happened? Can I change this?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Have a look in your Settings - General - Auto Lock.....there is different time settings you can use here. If it is set up and not working then its time for a restart or reset of your iPad.

    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 how you go.
