I have used the search with every variant I can think of. I have searched through each of the potential posts on 10 pages of threads. The issue: Occurs during the use of any app, I have added Pages, FB, Twitter, a magnifier. Nothing serious. I am a poet, not a tech. The screen switches to the lockout screen, at any point. I have turned of the wifi to see if it was a signal issue. It persists. Occasionally it will offer me the shut down screen. I cancel out, as one must to continue. This lockout screen dump happens every few seconds. Havoc watching Firefly. At the risk of beating a dead horse, it goes lockout, I swipe, or flip the cover closed and open again. It returns to the activity, and might immediately swap back to the lockout. This can go on for hours. I am far too patient. The time it swaps to lockout after swiping clear is seconds, and repeats, oddly, for hours, or can simply cease for a period of time. Is the anything I can do, will a full reset clear it out fresh? I appreciate any suggestions you might share. Thank you, for your time. This is an addition, half hour later. I did a full erase and restore, and this glitch occurs, even during the restore process, as in, while it is still loading up, asking me what language I want, all that. Curious.
