    I have an iPad 2 and I have it in a portfolio case and recently when I move it while I'm playing on it, it will lock itself. Does anyone have any clue as to what may be going on!?

    Can you be more specific about your case? Brand and style...is the case locking or the iPad?

    Not to sound dumb, but check you have your case on the right way so all the holes match up, is anything touching the button on the top right?

    My case is an incipio case and it's a portfolio style. The iPad is locking itself without me touching it. And there is nothing in contact with any of the buttons. I can't figure it out.

    Some cases have a magnet in them to lock the ipad when the case is closed. There is an option in Settings to turn that feature off.

    Some cases, when open will lock the iPad if the magnets are positioned just right (wrong). Can be a bit aggravating.

    Well, I knew there was a good reason for getting a cover, instead, and a shoulder bag. ;)
