    The way to fix the returning to Home screen problem is to completely power the iPad down by pressing and holding the Power button until the slider control appears, then accepting the offer to switch off. When the screen has gone completely blank, press the Power switch again until the white Apple logo appears. See if this fixes that problem.

    I've not heard any other Members with this problem since updating to iOS5. The 'returning to the Home screen' problem is usually due to lack of RAM and more frequently afflicts the iPad1, which has only half the RAM of the iPad2. Completely switching off the iPad causes the operating system to do some housekeeping - including freeing up unused RAM.

    One last suggestion - let's teach the iPad who is boss!! - a reboot. Switch the iPad off and then hold down the Home and Power buttons together for 6-9 seconds until the white Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot - takes a while. See if this fixes the problem.

    I have just started having a similar problem on my iPad 1. i press Calender to start it, it flicks open for a second then returns to the home screen.

    powering off and on or rebooting doesn't fix it.

    Any suggestions appreciated.
