    Twice this week when I've closed the cover on my ipad it has suddenly started playing music.

    Can anyone tell me what is going on with that?

    The cover is a leather deal in which the ipad proper fits in a sleeve and the other part of it closes like a book. Just a protective cover.

    Thanks in advance,
    Rick

    Has there been a bluetooth device connected to it, like a keyboard, e. g.?

    Yes, I use a bluetooth keyboard.

    What's your thought there?

    Not my thoughts, but what I've found:
    If the keyboard gets turned on accidentally, any button will wake the iPad up. From there if the "Play" or F8 button on the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard gets bumped, music will begin.
    Turn off bluetooth as soon as you don't need it, or the keyboard, or the iPad.
