    I use the screen lock switch 100% of the time. I never use the iPad with the screen "floating". Thanks to Ios4.2, instead of locking the screen the toggle switch is now a useless volume on/off switch which I would never use anyways!

    Where did the screen lock go and how can I get it back?

    Thanks

    Double tap the home button then swipe left on the multitasking bar. It's in the far left corner.

    Double click your home key. (indented button on the face).
    Brings up a multitask bar.
    The screen lock is now there.

    How many of the same thread regarding "screen lock" and "air print" are we going to see?

    Maybe Apple should provide a quick overview tutorial that automatically runs after the Ios upgrade to simply familiarize users with altered features so they can stop freaking out and having to waste their life by signing up for forums and asking for help.

    Cheers and thanks! ;)

    Hi,
    I agree I loved the screen lock using the switch. I also will never use the vol on/off please bring it back!! Or have a setting in settings that I can select between using the switch for screen lock or vol that would be even a better idea. There are so many times I wish the iPhone had a screen lock feature.
    I tried double taping on the Home button to bring up the running apps. On the far left mine shows Settings not screen lock. Any ideas?
    I have the 3G 64GB version.

    Thanks,
    John Gerard

    Oh, my bad. I just didn't scroll far enough to the left.
