    Don't panic!! Time for a reboot. Hold the Power and Home buttons down for 6-9 seconds until the white Apple logo appears - have faith, it will appear. The iPad will reboot and all will be back to normal. Nothing is lost - no apps, no data. It's nothing to worry about.

    try to hold the home button (the circle at the front lower center of the unit) and the power button (at the top right of the unit) until the option to turn it off appears. slide that arrow to the right.

    then you can turn it on again using the power button.

    see if it works.

    edit: wow, tim is so fast!

    It's the sign of a mis-spent youth!!

    Well, I bet the weather is better in Manila than in Scotland today!!

    Have a great day - and thanks for your help.

    Numerical post count means nothing. If you counted the number of those posts that were actually useful - then I'd be a Noob again.....:(
