    Something has changed on my iPad in the last couple of days and I don't know why. Whenever I close the lid (logitec folding keypad) and go away for a few minutes its completely frozen on the last page I had open when I get back. The only input it will accept is if you hold the home button down for 10 seconds or so which sends it to the access/login keypad screen.

    Its never done this in all the years I've had it. Up till now, when I would close the folio and go away for a few minutes, upon returning and flipping open the keyboard the security keypad screen would be automatically right there. I would sign in, and then it would go back to the last page or app I was on.

    No upgrades or new apps have been installed for months.

    Can anyone tell me what might have caused this change in behaviour?


    iPad
    ver 11.4.1

    Have you tried a reset? This often clears problems.

    Also is it always the same app that freezes?

    Does the problem still happen if you let the iPad fall asleep without closing the Logitech keyboard?

    I haven't tried that. But I did a reset and it didn't help. In fact neither the Home button nor the on/off button could break the freeze from the internet page I left up before I closed the lid. I had to hold both the Home button and the on/off button at the same time before it finally shut down to a black screen. Then I pressed the on/off button again and it opened up to the security keypad page.

    >> freeze from the internet page...

    I assume the same happens in flight mode (wifi off)?

    Well...Isn't that interesting. I upgraded to 12.0.1 and the problem went away. Now that I think of it...It was when that notification to upgrade first appeared that this problem started.

    Coincidence?

    Glad to hear that the problem has gone away - one hopes, for good.

    I had kept wondering whether to suggest 12.0.1, and checked that it runs on your build, but then stopped as I assumed you had your reasons for not installing it.
