    I just got my iPad Friday. One of the first things I tried was Keynote because I hope to use that for an upcoming presentation.

    After creating a few slides, I wanted to see how it would work on a monitor. So I hooked up the via adaptor and got - nothing. Nothing on the monitor at all.

    Am I missing something? Is there something have to do in Settings or in Keynote to tell it to use the monitor? I thought if I just hit the play arrow it would go there?

    First did you turn off the ipad before connecting VGA adapter to screen as this must be done. This article explains the procedure.

    I had another "Duh!" moment yesterday. I had done enough work and downloaded enough apps to want to sync back to my MBP. I had not done that since originally setting it up.

    So where was the cable? It had to be right there on my desk, but no.. I cursed myself for a fool. Had I put it somewhere "safe" and forgotten where or worse, thrown it out with the trash? I was just about to move a heavy file cabinet because I thought the cable might of slipped behind it when I realized my mistake: the cable is used with the charger. I never lost it, I just forgot that the sync cable is dual purpose.

    Duh :)

    I had the presentation software running my projector within an hour of opening the box - what I didn't like is that the projector takes over the image - there's nothing on the iPad screen, so you don't have the guide you had with the laptop. Small price to pay tho.
