    Hi everybody,

    For some reason when I press the home and power switch to take a screen shot on my ipad2--rather than take a picture, it shows the lock slide to power off. Am I missing something?
    Thank you,Everybody!:)

    You just press them both together momentarily and the screen should flash as if a picture was taken. Don't hold them down too long...

    Seriously? You can't get it from reading the posts above?

    Press the "power" and "home" buttons together for a moment. The screenshot will be saved in your Photos app.
