    ever since I've upgraded to iOS 6.1.2, my ipad shuts down / turns off from time to time. with some slight movement, or working on something, it just turns off. It doesn't just happen to me, it also happens to my wife's ipad 2. is it something to do with the software?

    I sometimes have the same problem. Silly cause really. I have a leather protective case with a magnet which turns off the screen when closed. When he case is opened (folded back on itself) it can easily affect the shutdown routine.

    Completely shutting down? Or just going to sleep.

    Could it be that you have the AutoLock settings set so the iPad goes to sleep too soon? May I recommend you check to see how much time you have [set] before the iPad goes to sleep. In case you don't know, you can check by going to the General tab in your Settings app and looking under "Auto-Lock."

    Maybe giving it more time before it goes to sleep will help?

    autolock is set at 10mins. though the sleep mode happens while I'm using or actively touching the screen.

    When you open the Smartcover, do you flip it all the way back?
