    Is it normal to every once in a while get kicked out of an app back to home screen suddenly? It seems to happen more often to me when I am on the page that shows all my apps or links that are currently open. Sorry if that doesn't make sense.

    When that happens it means the app has crashed.

    You can do 2 things delete app and down load again which will be free and also do a hard restart hold down home and off button until white apple logo appears.

    Some times it is a memory thing or it can be a bug in the App which most likely will be corrected in an upgrade

    If it happens in one particular app, you can also try killing that apps' process. It is harmless, doesn't delete the app or any saved data.

    To "kill the app", do this:
    While the offending app is running, hold down the Sleep button until you get the "Slide to power off" screen.
    Instead of sliding, just press and hold the Home button until that screen gets canceled and you get put back at the Home screen.

    Your app that was acting weird should be back to normal. I use this most when my Safari freezes. I've also used this on apps that were "working yesterday, but keep crashing today".

    This fixes the apps. I've only had to do a hard reset maybe three times when the whole iPad froze up and I couldn't even get the Home button to respond.

    This has been happening to me but in all apps. I get kicked out of all apps. Have done two hard resets and nothing. Need help. Not even the nightstand app will run continuously

    Have you tried rebooting the iPad. Switch it off and then hold down the Power and Home buttons simultaneously until the white Apple logo appears - can take quite a while, say up to 20 seconds. The iPad will then reboot.

    Nope tried that several times and did not work. Very frustrating as this the second time i type this as it also kicked me out of this app that i just installed last night and kicks me out while typing. My ipad is now useless at less than a year old. I ought there were other people out ther with same issues.

    Any other ideas?

    You seem to have tried everything so it looks as though there's a hardware fault. Why not return it to the Apple Store and they'll exchange it for a new one.
