    It's not normal for an iPad to shut down. Are you saying it is turning off? Is this only happening when you are on the Internet and no other time at all? This sounds strange indeed. Can you give more details? What exactly are you doing? What website? Is it really just going off? You have to phyiscally turn it back on?

    Something is wrong with it. I suggest you take it to an apple store if possible.

    Does it go through a full startup with the white apple logo on the black screen afterwards or does it come back instantly?

    Again what do you mean shutting down?

    Check your settings for auto-lock.

    When an app behaves strangely it is best to close it completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, let us know how you go.

    Hi,

    Last weekend, playing videos with BUZZ Player HD, eventually for three times occurred my iPad 3 was frozen, ...all completely frozen, I had to press home buttons and start buttons at same time for restart...

    I don´t know if this is related with this issue.

    Regards

    Sometimes apps just play up and the first step is always to close the offending app completely and then relaunch it. If that does not work Step 2 is to restart your iPad which is done by holding the power button in until the slide to power off appears, slide this and your ipad will turn off. Step 3 is a reset of your iPad, which if you have pressed both power button and home button simultaneously is what you have done here. Much better to do it in this order though. Enjoy!
