Is this one, lately at night when l'm finished with my IPad
I have been switching it off.
Long press on the off switch and slide to off.
Next time l need it, up pops the Apple logo and the card is locked.
Am l getting into a bad habit because it would be just a easy to do a black screen reset ?

Resetting/force starting/rebooting should only be used as a last resort, only if your device is not responding.

Switching off your iPad should not be too big a problem. Don't see that as a bad habit lol

Think because l had lots on my mind l forgot to mention that one reason l'm doing this is before switching off l have been using a VPN.
Some mornings it's still connected and l do not wish to be so.
Sorry for be being a d.........

I sure don't see how turning off the iPad would cause a problem. Our IT department reminds all of us field technician types to actually turn off our company iPhones regularly.

Generally, with the iPhone and iPad I just press the power button once and put them both into sleep or standby most of the time.
