    Do you have the latest version of iTunes? This happened to me once and I uninstalled iTunes and then re-installed it.

    Yes every time an update in announced I update my version. I do not really want to uninstall and reinstall because all the information that is stored in the backup files of my iPad and iPod will be erased as well ad the songs within ITunes.

    If you mean iTunes on the iPad give these steps a try:-
    Do the four finger swipe up to reveal your multi task bar along the bottom. It will show all the apps that you have opened at one time or another. Long press one of these apps until they start to jiggle and red minus signs will appear above them all. Press all the minus signs, this will close them, not delete them. It's a good idea to do this regularly just to keep them all running smoothly, I do mine every night. Check and see if it is operating now. if not a restart is in order.

    Restart: Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will start again. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running smoothly. Now see if it is operating. If not a reset is the next step.

    Reset: Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. This is a reset.

    When your iPad begins to behave strangely these are the first steps you should do to rectify it. Let us know how you go, good luck!!

    How often should be iPad be restarted?

    The APP Store shut itself off the first time I used the iPad. The iPad is brand new. Also there are a few other applications that hut themselves down.

    I restart my iPad every week. Doing those 3 steps will keep your iPad running smoothly, just like you do with a computer. Have you followed the steps and it's still happening?
