    Try this: Hold down the Home button and the on/off switch at the same time for about 45 seconds, or till the iPad comes on, whichever comes first.

    My iPad 1 seemed to go dead like yours once about 1.5 years ago and hasn't had a prob since. It was working fine, was well charged, but the screen went black and the iPad seemed totally unresponsive. I did the above step and it restarted and functioned again as if nothing had happened. Hope your experience is similar.

    This fixed the problem! I hope that the fix is permanent. I don't think I could live without my IPAD. Do you know how to back up the info (especially in notes, contacts, and the calendar (appointments)?
