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.
