    I synced my ipad this afternoon with my itunes and now my ipad won't switch in. It just shows the grey apple in the middle of the screen.

    Will I have to reset it back to factory settings and will I lose everything.

    Try holding down the power button and the home button at the same time until you see the Apple Logo.

    Let it reboot and see if this helps.

    Have you tried it while the iPad is switched off?

    Well just tried again and it's worked! Panic over! Thank goodness for that! Thought I'd have to survive a night without my iPad - having not had a day apart since January that would not have been good! Using an iPod touch just isn't the same!

    Good news! No one should be parted from their iPad, it's a basic human right!
