    My iPad started to auto-command itself. First some extra letters when writing a note, then scrolling the page. Now closing software and opening another by it's own. Now the latest thing is that if I open my notepad, it starts erasing the text and typing something else on it =(

    This is my first mac, and I've always thought that no anti-virus is necessary. Or is it?

    My iPad is NOT jail-broken, and I've downloaded apps only from Apple apps store.

    What is going on?

    I suggest you hold down the off key and home key until the apple logo starts. Then see what happens failing that do a full restore in iTunes no no virus issues most likely either a memory issue or corrupt system. Hope that helps

    This is going to sound funny.. Turn off your blue tooth. See if that fixes the problem.

    Thanks! I rebooted the machine, but the problem is still there. I guess I have to install the whole system again.

    Nothing sounds funny after having those odd WiFi connection problems with this machine too ;-)

    Bluetooth has been off all the time, but this issue DO have something to do with the network though, since as long as I'm offline this issue does not arise, but soon after I switch my WiFi on and connect to the net, the problems start again...

    I actually experienced this very same issue starting this weekend. I contacted Apple support and the tech I worked with had not heard of this. I restored the device twice, the second time not even restoring my apps or data, ensured all network devices are off and it continues. Apple is replacing my device under warranty. The behavior started as I attempted to preview a movie on the iTunes Store on the device (Toy Story 3). Pretty strange.

    Do you have a secure network? Have you tried connecting to a different network and seeing if the issue arises? That way you can rule out if its device related or network related.

    Wouldn't make much difference in the scheme of things. The iPad should not be able to be remote controlled, even on a completely compromised network.
