    You can change the 'Autolock' time in the iPad's 'Settings' menu, so you can set it to 'Never' or a much shorter time, if you prefer.

    If the iPad is left in Sleep mode, then FindMyPad is still working. Even if the iPad is switched off, the thief then wouldn't be able to use the iPad, of course, without switching it on and, of course, then FindMyPad would be activated.

    However, it's all rather academic because any thief would simply restore the iPad to its factory default settings, in which case the FindMyPad function would be disabled. It was never really intended to find stolen iPads, rather to locate mislaid ones.

    Most Members have found that FindMyPad is fairly useless for recovering stolen iPads. Most thieves know only too well how to defeat this function; as I mentioned, its only real use is for recovering lost iPads.

    Insurance is the best protection....
