    Hi Bob - welcome to the forum! :)

    Not sure what you did in saying 'won't shut down' - but my suggestion is to 'Reset' the iPad, i.e. press & hold the 'Power' and 'Home' buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears - if the logo appears, then the device should re-boot; if the screen goes blank, then press and hold the 'Power' button - wait for a re-boot - let us know if this helps - good luck!

    So it's asking to connect to iTunes when it's already plugged into the computer?

    My wife's iPad mini asks to be registered (again) every time I do a backup. Just ignore the dumb things and enjoy the smart ones.

    Did you unplug it from the computer when you tried doing the hard reset, power and home button?
