    How is it going, brand new to the forums so this question might of been brought up a bunch already. I keep getting a black screen from time to time from running apps. Such as words with friends and safari, these are the two most common ones that give me black screens for no apparent reason. I would appreciate any advice or links to certain areas of the site that can help with my problem. Thank you

    Try releasing some memory by quitting other apps that are still lurking in the background.
    Usually, this will help.

    When things start acting a bit weird, it's a good idea to completely shut the iPad off and restart. You should probably do this at least once a week (my unsupported opinion on frequency.)

    Just hold down the power button for about three seconds. You'll get a power off slider. Go ahead and slide it off. Wait until the iPad completely shuts down and then restart it by holding down the power button for about three seconds again.

    For more serious problems, when shutting it off doesn't work, you can do a soft reset. Hold down the power and home key for about 10 seconds, or until the Apple logo appears. Let go and wait for it to reboot. This will take a few minutes, so be patient.
