    I tried to reboot my iPad 2 and after I slid the power off slider, the little revolving circle just keeps circling. After about 10 minutes I connected it to my PC and I got an error "iTunes could not connect to this iPhone due to an unknown error (0xE8000065)." I've tried holding the Home and power buttons in different combinations, but nothing works.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I guess a trip to the Apple Store is on the agenda for tomorrow.

    It's now been 20 minutes and the little circle keeps turning and turning and turning...

    Thanks.

    OK - don't panic.

    Hold the Power and Home button down together for about 15-20 seconds - or even longer - until the white Apple logo appears - don't worry, it will - have faith.

    The iPad will then reboot - that takes a little while too, so time for a cup of coffee and you'll soon be up and running again.

    Thanks, that worked! Oh, sticking my tongue out the left side of my mouth also helped.

    To my knowledge I'm pretty sure you don't lose any data.

    Nothing is lost - you're simply rebooting - how many times have you rebooted your PC? It's just the same. No big deal.
