    Hi All,

    I expect there is nothing I can do about this, but thought I would see if anyone has any suggestions.

    My IPad got drowned a couple of weekends back. It's taken a couple of weeks of drying it out (rice/silica gel etc) and its gradually got better to the point that it is mostly working. The only remaining issues are:

    1. Sleep/Wake shoulder button is unresponsive
    2. Volume control only goes up

    2 isn't a huge issue (though if anyone has any thoughts on fixing it then let me know) as I can change it on-screen without too much problem.

    Number 1 though makes it difficult to do a reset or anything like that which is a bit more of a problem. I have a smart-cover so I can put it to sleep easily enough, but as the button itself has a few more uses I would like to fix it - if this is at all possible.

    Anyone got any thoughts?
