    Hi,
    Is there a function to prevent your IPAD to go into sleep mode temporary? I don't want to change the setting but just want to keep it on for a duration. I use the ipad to access online recipes, and it's frustrating when i'm in the middle of a recipe with both hands dirty and it goes into sleep mode :eek:

    TIA

    Temporarily turn off the sleep-mode?

    Unless your recipe app has a feature to prevent the iPad from going to sleep, is there no way to prevent sleep mode.

    Exactly Stephen, it will still shut off the display if you are using a smart cover on the iPad 2, which is great!
