    Issue #1... Last night I synced my i2 and in the process downloaded about 1500 images to my iMac. When I was done, I unplugged the i2 and set it aside. Just a few minuted later I tried to start the i2 (using the home button of course) and there was no response... I wondered if I had turned it off completely so I held the corner button (sorry - I don't remember its official name right now)... No response from that either. I then tried plugging it in to the iMac again to see it iTunes recognized it... Nothing. Finally, fearing that I would cause a factory reset, I held both the home button and the corner button. The apple appeared and once it was fully booted everything operated normally again - as if nothing had ever occurred. What gives with that?

    Issue #2. I can't seem to connect to the iTunes store to update Evernote. I seem to be able to connect to the store for any other app, but not for Evernote. Does this sound familiar to anyone?Thanks in advance.

    Issue 1 is not uncommon. Like any computer the iPad occasionally gets locked up. The reset method you used is what Apple recommends when a normal restart does not work, and as you noticed it does not remove any data from the iPad.

    I'm not sure about the Evernote issue. It seems strange. Make sure you are on a good wi-fi connection and give it another try.

    If it persists in failing the update, first make sure Evernote is synced with the server (so that you lose no data) then try deleting it and reinstalling.

    I just installed the latest Evernote update a few moments ago. Worked as normal. Maybe just give it another go...?

    Twerp, I wasn't clear. After the two-button reset, I DID NOT lose any data!!! I expected to, but did not. Thanks for your response.

    I think twerppoet made a typo. He meant "does not remove"... He knows you should never lose data when resetting an iPad :D

    Typo and lack of proof reading on my part. I meant "does not". I'll go back and correct it. :eek:

    Indeed. I'm quite embarrassed. Those negatives are so important, and easy to misplace. :eek:

    No need for embarrassment or apologies Twerp. Your input was appreciated regardless of the typo. I'm just glad to get feedback.

    On the case of the Evernote. I deleted and reinstalled as you suggested and everything is fine in that area.

    Thanks again,

    Good, glad it's fixed. I'll keep my embarrassment though. It's good for me, and I really should remember to proof read. ;)

    I know this is a relatively old post Twerp, but the issue reappeared (with other apps) and I have not found the time to do any further research. I still think it is a byproduct of OS 4.3.5.
