    There's a good old fashioned remedy called discipline. No iPad for a week...

    Hold down the sleep button and press the home button

    Not easy to do by accident. Perhaps they don't know the right way to put the iPad to sleep.

    Be careful about how you handle this or they could kidnap your iPad and hold it for ransom!

    I hope those are just jokes.

    Kids are kids. They're inquisitive, they like exploring and a device as accessible as the iPad, they're going to explore.

    Don't discipline them for experimenting with a system like the iPad. You're the one being obtuse if you think that's going to help.

    If they dropped it on the floor, or were generally mistreating it - then I agree, take it away. For now, I'd just laugh quietly and delete the pictures.

    Here I was wondering if you were trying to figure out how to turn it off so you didn't get screen shots of um... certain types of adult materials :p

    Well actually discipline is certainly a viable reccomendation. If you tell them to stop doing the screenshots that should be sufficient. If that is so difficult then teaching them to drive will turn out tragic.

    Its no joke! Let me guess... you don't have any children, do you? Because "kids are kids" and because they are inquisitive, that is precisely why someone needs to be an adult and set some sort of limits and boundaries.

    If you have a 3 year old with the dexterity and fine motor skills to hold down those two buttons in the right order at exactly the right tme, then they absolutely have the mental capacity to understand, "Don't do that!". It doesn't have to be a philosophical discussion. It's called parenting. As my father told me many times (only because I deserved it!), "This household is not a democracy!

    Well,they aren't trying to save the pics. They know the sleep and home buttons are ways to stop things.

    thanks,but I didn't start this post for parenting tips.they have reset it twice(curious about all of the icons) so I figured out how to hide the settings icon.they like the pad so i want them to have a good time without having to worry about it.if they break it,i have no one to blame but myself. I'll just get a new one.it's already paid for itself in the amount of quiet time it's generated.

    this would be like going to car forum to ask about activating child door locks and being suggested that if they are smart enough to pull the handle, they should understand why not do it....you shouldn't have to activate those locks.
    You think I'm not going to have GPS device in a teenage car because they are old enough to know better?fat chance. I'm all about CYA.

    My two cents..:)

    I am a parent. I have twins that are almost 6. I understand that you have to say "no, don't do that". I generally don't allow my children to run around like wild people turning on stoves and playing with matches.

    But this is an iPad and it's 2 button presses. They're not running around by a pool with slippery concrete while swearing. They hit 2 buttons. Of course they hit those 2 buttons a significant number of times, but still.

    I wasn't suggestion to simply say nothing to the children, brush it off like it never happened, however the immediate responses of "DISCIPLINE YOUR CHILDREN!" were unnecessary. Like he said above he didn't come for parenting advice, and even if he had, there was no assessment of the situation. Maybe he said no, but no one asked, they just jumped on their high horses assuming OP is a terrible parent and doesn't know how to properly discipline children.

    I'm sure the goal was to ask a question with a light anecdote as to why the question was being asked. A lynching for being a bad parent wasn't an expected outcome, nor should it have been.

    With all due respect, the guy came here looking for a solution to a problem... and that's what he got!

    If I want a technical answer to a technical question, I will go to a technical source; like the manufacturer. OTOH, if I want other people's opinions, I will go to an Internet forum!

    BTW, father of 3, grandfather of 8!

    Yes, Using the iPhone config utility, you can disable screen captures. You can get it by googling "iphone configuration utility" I can't post links... But I know this works.
    :D
