    I just tweeted this but to further humiliate myself I'm going to talk about it here. Last night I found out you can turn the iPad off. Nobody told me and I thought that was basically what happened when you put it to sleep.:eek:

    I guess I pushed on the button longer then usual. I've had my iPad for about 2 months now. Could I be the only one?

    Or talk about anything else that you've done, discovered, etc.

    I got you beat. About 3 weeks ago I was really tired and watching Netflix on the iPad while laying in bed. I had the headphones in, but decided since I wanted to lay on my side, that I would take them out.

    I couldn't for the life of me figure out why when I pulled the earbuds out of my ears it wouldn't switch over to the external speaker. I even put the earbuds back in my ears and pulled them out again. Then it dawned on me to unplug them.

    Whew. Feels good to get that off my chest.

    Was on the crapper doing the goods, girl walks in, sees iPad, sees me on toilet. Her face reaction was priceless.

    I was reading articles on flipboard. Now she won't touch it lol

    On a long journey I was listening to Mahler on the train. Didn't realise my headphones weren't fully pushed in and had treated my fellow travellers to the concert...........

    @Snarky30 - that is hilarious. I haven't done anything that funny on the iPad, but I keep doing the same thing everyone else does: try to launch Apps on my net book by touching the screen. Fingerprints are the embarassing evidence. ;)

    I was reading, flat on my back and nodded off to sleep. Bang! I woke up as the iPad tilted and fell on my face... That hurt. No shameful marks to explain though.:p

    Let me be the first one to help you.

    Touch on an icon until they all start to wiggle, then drag it on top of another icon and a folder will be created.

    Something similar happened to me about two weeks ago.

    Was laying in bed watching a show on the iPad, was holding it upright on my chest, nodded off for just a second, and it fell down and landed right on the bridge of my nose. If you've ever been hit in the nose before by anything, you'll know that it makes your eyes tear up. My wife walked in and asked why I was crying and I had to explain that I wasn't crying, my eyes were just watering. Yeah right, LOL, likely excuse.
