    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

    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.

    I do not know how long you've owned the iPad - so I hope not too long. Because, to be honest, this sounds like a hardware issue, especially as it still happens after a full restore.

    The only thing I can suggest is to take it in to the Apple store and show it to the Geniuses there. Hopefully, they'll be able to help.

    Maybe someone else will be along that has a solution that'll work without going to the store...

    Thank you for your quick response!

    I have had her (I call her ALIS, after Chrysalis) since October, and received her
    as a gift. I will take her in and see what the genius says. I felt inclined to ask
    around forums, first, you know? I would love to have been able to solve the issue
    myself, but alas, I am sunk!

    Thanks for your time, this is sound, and I will follow it up.

    I hope this finds you well.
