    Try a hard reset: Hold the power button and the home button down at the same time until you see the Apple logo. About 10 seconds or so. Let it reboot. See if this helps!

    Welcome to ipf,

    This problem could be because you have too many apps open. To fix this, double tap the home button, hold an app till it starts quivering, then click the red no entry sign to close.

    Thank you for your suggestions

    I installed the latest software update...iOS 5.0.1 and hey presto, all was well

    Which probably achieved the same as a hard rest.

    I did close all apps down before i posted here, but that didn't help unfortunately

    Thanks again
    Cheers
