    I tried to send a video I had taken on the Ipad by email and it froze the screen. I then attempted to turn off the iPad and now it is just stuck in the timer mode with the white spokes just turning around and around in the centre of the screen and I cant do anything with it. Does anyone know what I can do?

    Don't panic - time for a reboot!

    Press and hold the Power and Home buttons for several seconds until the White Apple logo appears. Have faith! It will appear. The iPad will reboot and all will be fine - nothing is lost - no apps, no data!

    As Tim said in the post above yours, press and hold those two buttons and have faith (!) - the logo WILL appear. :)
