    Probably a dumb user error but, my iPad always used to automatically shut the screen off after a short period of inactivity. Now, I put it down and, 15 or 30 minutes later . . . Still on!

    I power cycled it, no change. Can't find any option either.

    Please help.

    The option is found in settings - auto-lock. It is odd that it changed, but now you can set it to whichever setting you want.

    Same situation here with an iPad I got from eBay. It's set for two minutes but still was not turning off. A soft reset fixed the problem. Press and hold the power and home buttons at the same time. Release them when you see the white Apple. I hope this works for others as well.
