    Hi,

    My ipad gets autolocked after a use it for while. When I use the slide botton to unlock it, it gets locked again and again and again. What can i do? I have already formated it but I'm still facing the same issue. Appreciate if anyone can share their knowledge on how to fix this annoying issue. Thanks

    To fix this problem..

    Use the iPad's Settings app

    'Settings', 'General', 'Autolock', and then set the time that you'd like it to Autolock after, including 'Never'.

    Hope this fixes the problem

    Sorry that didn't work. Another 'fix' for unexplained problems is to completely power the iPad down by pressing *and holding* the power switch. Once the screen is blank, press *and hold* again until the white Apple icon appears. After about 10 seconds, you're back to your Home screen.

    This seems to fix a whole range of problems like this. Hope it works for you. If not, let us know and I'm sure someone will come up with some other suggestions.
