    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Can you give us more info to go by with your problem......Have you updated your iPad to IOS7?

    Did you do a reset of your iPad after the update.....this is a recommended step after an update to allow everything to settle in nicely.

    Try it and let us know how you go.

    Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you may see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start.

    Is it the screen going dark to save battery life after not interacting with it? Depending on your iOS version you can change the Autolock setting.

    Then pick the length of time - this is independent of a pass code lock

    Sometimes it may be something simple (hopefully)

    My iPad mini will not let me send messages to many of my contacts. When I type their names in the TO box, the letters change to a red color. This means the message will not be sent. I have iMessage turned on. Not sure what else to do in the settings to correct this problem. It happens when I message people with and without Apple prods. Yet, if these people message me, I receive the message and can reply. But I cannot initiate a message to these same people. My iPhone and iPad have both been updated to 7.

    When that happens, it's because you are trying to send an iMessage to someone who either doesn't have iMessage turned on or doesn't have iMessage (such as a device running the Android iOS).

    There is no way around this as iMessage works between active iMessage accounts only. So, the only thing I can suggest is to use a different text messaging service. There are a lot available in the AppStore; hopefully someone can join in to give you their recommendations.

    I am a brand new iPad Mini owner who has been using Android devices for a long time. Overall, the mini looks like a nice device. However I'm trying to do something that is trivially simple on the Android device but I have been struggling with for a couple of hours now on the iPad. I'm trying to edit a plain text file that is stored in a Drop Box directory. I have tried four different iPad apps including Plain Text, Documents, Documents 2, and QuickOffice.

    It's easy to view the Drop Box file, and I have been able to open and edit it using all three of the mentioned applications. However none of the apps sseems to have a "save" function to store it back in it's Drop Box folder. The best I have been able to do is store it locally on the iPad, for which each app seems to have it's own storage area. On the Android device the steps are:

    1. Open the Drop Box folder
    2. Tap on the .txt file I want to edit
    3. Edit the file
    4. Tap "save"

    How does one do that same thing on the iPad?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    Files stored in Dropbox can be edited in CloudOn. This app also saves them to Dropbox again. There's a free app, and also a paid one. You only need the free app to work with files from Dropbox.
