    With iOS 4.3 we now have the choice to either set our iPad's switch that was originally a rotation lock, and then became a mute switch, to the one we prefer. Which will it be for you?

    I would prefer a true mute button that would mute all sounds, not just the system sounds. It is fairly useless as it is now because it doesn't mute everything.

    I barely used the Rotation Lock in 3, and I didn't use the Mute button in 4, so I made mine back to the Rotation Lock. Haven't had need to use it yet.

    Rotation lock. Easy enough to just turn the volume all the way down. I'll mostly leave it that way and just turn it up when watching a video or playing a game or something else that has sound.

    I don't lock rotation much.

    I do take my iPad into the theater for pre-movie entertainment (never have it on during the previews, let alone the show). A one click switch to make sure it doesn't beep during the movie works for me.

    When I make it a rotation lock, I suddenly wish I could silence a game. When I make it mute, I get annoyed with rotation lock.

    Ultimately I trained myself to HOLD DOWN the volume rocker which goes mute instantly, and so I use the rotation lock pref.
