    Last night, while playing Fiona's Gardening HD on Ipad, i felt sleepy. So I pressed power button and went to sleep without ending my game. This morning, I woke up and I realized that I can't turn on my IPAD anymore. I tried to press home button and power button but nothing come up. It's not out of battery, I can be sure about that because when I went to sleep, my ipad had more than 70% battery. And I tried to charge and plug in my computer, too. But nothing happen. Can anyone help me, please!!!

    No need to panic - all is OK...just time for a reboot!!!

    Hold the Power and Home buttons down at the same time for a long time - could be 20 seconds - until the white Apple logo appears. Have faith, if your battery is OK, then that logo *will* appear! The iPad will then reboot - takes a while, so good opportunity to make yourself a cup of coffee or tea - and you'll be back to normal....it's not a problem unless this happens frequently. You're only rebooting so nothing is lost - no apps, data, videos, music - it will all be there after the reboot.

    Good Luck...

    Plugging it into the computer for a few minutes may not give the iPad enough charge to start. Plug it into it's own charger for an hour or two, then give Tim's suggestion a try.

    Some things said by other users have long make me suspect that some types of apps, those that have a constant connection to a server, may not completely shut down when you tap the power/sleep button. You have to actually close the app using the home button. I really should test that some day, but since it would take a lot of time and probably only happens on a few apps I've been too lazy to try.
