    Tried a few searches here but didn't spot this anywhere.
    Anyone else got this problem? I just tried to take a screen snapshot for the first time since installing iOS5 on my iPad1 and it doesn't work. (Worked fine with iOS4.3.5) Holding the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time eventually just brings up the slider to power off.

    If it does work on your iPad1 with iOS5 please let me know then I know the problem is with my iPad.

    Works fine on mine.

    You shouldn't need to hold them, just a quick press of them together should do the trick.

    Thanks Gabriel1. It just refused to work like that the other day but is back to normal now. I have since read that others have found the same problem. I suspect an app had upset things. Some are not yet 'iOS5 friendly'.
