    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.
