    New member to this board and have a question. Just jailbroke my Ipad 1and I am trying to find a hack/tweak to put my ipad to sleep via using the home button or some type of on screen app. Reason being I am fiberglassing my ipad inside of my dash of my car and the top corner button will be blocked. So I need a way to put the ipad to sleep when I exit the car other than waiting 2 minns for it to goto sleep on its own. Also I did download the "activation" app but it doesn't have option to put to sleep only to turn completly off and that doesn't work for me because then I have to boot tethered to use JB apps.... Anyone have a solution for me?

    If it is an iPad1, why not just upgrade to the untethered JB?

    Well the untethered jailbreak is out so you don't have to worry about tethered if you're jailbreak.
    As for activator, just set it so a short hold on the home button will lock it. Easy.

    Disregard my last post, didn't realize ppl where posting while I was...

    That's not exactly what I'm looking to do....I pretty much want the ipad sleep with the press of a button..don't want the ipad tp be lit up when I'm exiting the car because I will not be removing the ipad everytime I exit the car

    If you can get access to the power button through your car mount, then all you would have to do is press the power button once and the iPad would sleep like it always does.

    Gee, sorry. I guess when he said: "because then I have to boot tethered to use JB apps" I thought he was talking about booting a tethered JB device and if he powered down he would then have to boot tethered to use JB apps. Since he no longer has to do that with the untethered JB out, I thought I would be helpful and point that out.

    Take a look at this tweak in Cydia: QuickLock2. It's a free tweak and you get an icon to put wherever you wish (I have mine on the dock). One press of the icon and bam! The iPad is a sleeping baby. Then, to wake it up, you can do one press of the Home button.

    So, you won't/don't need access to that sleep button. I've used it for over 6 months now - works a treat.

    Hope this helps.
