1. Due to the recent site upgrade, the iPadForums (iPF) App will no longer work. The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

Is there an app that allows me to select the icon to put the iPad into sleep mode?

    As subject, just as a simple alternative to pressing the on/off/sleep switch on the edge of the iPad.

    Yes, there is - but only if you're jail broken. You can use icons, toggles and even,gestures to turn off the iPad.

    But, there is no alternative on a stock iPad. Sorry.

    Settings/Accessibility/Assistive Touch does give a number of useful options. It puts a moveable icon on your screen no matter where you are.

    Whatever you do, don't touch 'Triple Click'! Did that and had "fun" getting back to normal actions.
