    Try holding the power button and home button at the same time for awhile. Hopefully that will power cycle it and reboot it.

    Also try attaching charger to see if that awakens it.

    Also try attaching it iTunes via USB.

    As Seneca has indicated a hard reset as he describes is likely your best bet.

    Suggestion....

    Close background apps.

    Double press home button and task bar appears with recently used apps.

    Long press any of them until it wobbles and displays a red minus sign.

    Tap the minus signs to remove apps from RAM. This does NOT delete the app it removes it from background memory and frees up the resources for the iPad.

    Hi Joe, please don't delete posts unless they are there by error, if it stays it allows others who have the same problem to see the solution.

    But I'm glad you got it fixed!
