    Please help. I downloaded the 4.2 update with no difficulty but immediately after, the physical slider switch on the top right edge of my iPad (above the volume rocker switch) no longer operates to lock the screen in the portrait or landscape mode. It now operates to mute the volume. How do I lock out the rotation of the screen. Thanks, Nathan

    Double click the home button and slide ribbon to the right. That is where the screen lock is now. You will also see sliders for volume and brightness.

    The switch on the side is now a mute control.

    Apple did this to make the hardware align with iPhone that never had a screen lock switch.
