    What do you use your iPad's side switch for: mute device or screen rotation lock, or do you switch between the two?

    I use mine for rotation lock, I just use that operation more than mute (or rather, un-mute).

    Now that I think about I never use my side button. I have a magnetic case that turns the iPad on/off when open/closed.

    I use both the mute and lock rotation, but to be honest...I think I do the 4-finger swipe and use the volume control panel for all those needs. I hope that I answered the question correctly!

    I use it for mute simply because I mute my iPad more than I lock the orientation.

    Rotation lock for when I'm reading in bed. Not amusing when I slightly tilt my ebook and it changes to portrait. I do read portrait as well though.

    Me too. I lock the rotation whenever I'm laying down with the iPad.

    Rotation lock. I hardly ever mute my iPad. If I need to I just press and hold the low volume button.
