    I've had my Mini with Retina Diplay for a week.

    Sometimes the screen is not very resposive. Other times it is fine.

    I have had to tap an icon several times and harder to make it open.

    Today, I could not Slide to unlock. I thought it might be my finger, but I tried a stylus and the same result. I powered it off completely, then on and it worked fine.

    Any ideas? cb

    At the moment, it's OK. I'll keep an eye on it and try what it said to do.

    I am concerned that it is a hardware problem

    Thanks for the link,

    By the way, if is not a hardware problem, do you have any idea what causes the lack of response? Is there anything I can do to keep it from happening?

    Maybe there's a pattern. Perhaps you can monitor when this happens.

    The reason could be low memory (RAM), or the battery that needs charging.

    Btw: this is a new device, so a visit to the next Apple Store might be a better solution than just guessing what is happening. You'll probably get a replacement.

    That's cool. I never though of using the Maps app to test the touch screen, but it makes perfect sense.
