    Hold button blocked

    Try holding the power button (top right) on iPad for about 10 seconds or so to see if the iPad will reboot. As far as the hold button is concerned, that is a hardware problem that will need to be fixed.

    How do I update to new ios on a brand new omputer

    You can authorize the new computer to accept your iPad. Go to iTunes and set up a new library the prompts will let you authorize. Apple lets you authorize 5 times. With regard to the upgrade, I am assuming you want to upgrade to iOS 6.0. That needs to been done wirelessly. You need to plug in...

    Ideas for removing Bubbles from Armored Case

    Try dusting the screen with baby powder first. Wipe clean and apply your Invisi Shield. The powder helps pick up small debris, moisture and some oils.

    Office software

    "Documents To Go" lets you view and edit files but like dhewson777 said, its limited in what you can do. It will not show charts, pics, etc. It works great for simple work. "Office HD2" is another but I do not have any experience with it. My friend swears by it.

    Is the IPAD 2 able to use pdf for slideshow?

    The only app I could come up with that may help is App Store - Slideshow Remote Read about in the app store or the author's site. The Lite version is free but they do have a Pro version paid as well. By saving the PP to a PDF you basically have "flattened" the PP to a PDF file for viewing one...

    Wifi connection

    Sounds like a problem with Air Display. How is your signal strength with just connecting to WiFi without using Air Display? Try looking here if you have a good signal. Avatron Software: Support Q&A

    That's a tough one! The only thing you didn't mention was resetting the wifi router. Not sure if this will help but it's worth a try. Just unplug the router (power) wait a few seconds and plug it back in. After it reboots give it a try. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    Screen protector

    Personally I would just get a case that protects the screen. I have yet to find a screen protector (film type) that was easy to apply without getting some bubbles under it. Enjoy the beauty of your screen.
