There seems to be some issue about whether it is space, open apps, etc, by reading the posts. Here is (was) my case when I first started the thread. It seems to have been lost in replies, and I will also add a little more info: Devices it was happening on: iPad Air (128 GB with 101 available), iPhone 5 (32 with 3.5 available), and iPad Mini (not sure as I have not used it since I got the Air and husband now uses the Mini. Forgot the size. I know,though, that he has plenty of space because I removed all of my stuff before I turned it over to him and he only has a little on it. Uses: No videos, none of those major games people play. Just solitaire and word finds, some photos, PDF's. Not used for streaming videos, etc. We do close down apps. We do hard shutdowns or whatever it is called. It was happening in all three devices after the 7.0 update. The issue did not exist before that on the Mini and Phone. The Air came with the 7.0. We don't have apps open on the bottom screen that you see when double tapping the home button. I am in the habit of closing them down. If I forget, there are never a bunch when I do remember because I don't use a lot. It makes absolutely no difference. P Since we have plenty of space, I doubt that is (was) the issue. It was constant with 7.0 and was with the built in Mail and Safari apps, only. It had happened only occasionally since all three were updated with the 7.1. I have only had a couple instances of it happening on my Air when in the Mail app that comes built in on the pad when purchasing. It has also only happened a couple times in Safari on the Air. It has not happened on the mini or my iPhone 5 since updating to 7.1. I believe it was an issue with 7.0 and has almost been fixed with 7.1. I think there may be a little something on the iPad Air that is not reacting as suspected in certain conditions. Unfortunately, I have not paid attention to exactly what actions I was doing when I was exited because I do not know when or if it will happen. It has only happened with the built-in Safari app and built-in mail app. I do not use the included social media apps and have no social media apps installed and running, just in case someone comes up with that. Since it is now just very occasionally on the Air since the 7.1 upgrade, my original post that started this thread is no longer relevant and responses are really not needed since it is not referring to the current iOS. The issues were referring to the old 7.0, not the 7.1 now being used. I think this information was being lost as the thread went on.
