    I'm getting very frustrated with this. Occasionally when I am on safari it'll just exit out on its own and go,back to the home screen. Some apps that I have (mostly games) will load for a second and then bam exit out by itself. I even have this one game that won't even stay open for more than 3 seconds.
    Things I've tried:

    -deleting app then redownloading
    -turning ipad completely off
    -double clicking the home button and exiting out of apps & safari
    -doing a reset by holding power and home buttons

    And my ipad is up to date. But it's doing this very often (mostly on apps, rarely safari) and its becoming very frustrating. I have the ipad 2 and it's about a year old. It started doing this just a couple months after getting it but rarely, and just now started getting frequent. Help??

    EDIT: okay now I've noticed that some apps will exit out repeatedly while I'm on my wifi , but when I turn it off they work fine. What's up with that???

    You could try this:
    Settings>General>Reset and then tap "Reset all Settings". You will still retain your contacts, calendar and media such as songs and videos. But all your your preferences and settings are reset. That may help.

    You can try closing all the apps in your multitasking bar. It can free up memory in the RAM. To do so, double click the home button, then tap and hold on one of the app icons until they all start to wiggle. Then tap the red - sign that appears in the upper left corner. This closes the app, but does not erase it from your iPad. Then try safari and those other apps, they should work better. Perform this cleanup on a regular basis and it should help your iPad run more smoothly.

    In my post I stated that's something I've already done.

    It's letting me in the game it didn't before! I think this might have worked

    Edit: Nevermind, as soon as I turned my wifi back on, it's doing the same thing???

    Try this Katelin, it might work.
    Turn off your modem by removing the cable, and switch off your WiFi router (Or if they are one combined unit, switch it off). Wait about 30 seconds then connect/turn on again. Did that do any good?

    Here's an idea, have you tried a different router? Go to a friend's house or try public wifi. If it works properly while using a different router, it may be time to replace your router.

    My Ipad 3 has just this week begun exiting to Home Screen usually when I am using Safari. Wondered if it's an update I installed? Or Words with Friends or Bubble Witch games? Any help appreciated. Have tried switching off, also always do exit my apps.

    I didn't want to risk losing my passwords etc unless I really have to...I do loads of competitions...so wasn,t going to reset Settings unless I have to. I have shut Ipad right off, daily, close all apps by holding Home button and deleting jiggling apps etc. If I clear History, will that do any good or will that mean my passwords etc will go? Am not brilliant at the workings , sorry.

    Well SAFARI is exiting out even more frequently and I just lost a voucher I'd won...so frustrating...any ideas welcome but I really don't want to clear all my settings unless I have to.
