    Why does my iPad keep stopping and I have to keep turning it off and on? Ok so I know it may be that it is common with iPads but it is happening soooo much more than is is 'throw it out of the window' time!!!lol

    Hi there, I am going to move this to the Help Section.

    Not sure if you have done any of the immediate fixes, however worth a try....

    1. Force the app to close?
    2. Try to restart your iPad?
    3. Try to do a soft reset?

    You can try this in order, if an app misbehaves.

    Force the app to close down*by pushing the home button twice to bring up your multi-task bar. This will show all the apps that you have visited. By long pressing the app in question, it will begin to jiggle-press the red circle with the negative sign on the app. It will only quit the app and not delete. Than try to re-open the app and test out.

    If that doesn't work, restart the iPad by pressing the power switch down to power off.

    Third is to do a soft reset by holding the power switch and home button together until you see the apple logo. Hope that helps!
