I really would like to lock the screen so it doesnt change position if I move it a little bit. Anybody know if this is possible?Why the heck did it copy all of my Iphone apps onto itself even though I told it not too? Not too happy about that...Otherwise I think it is absolutely amazing. The touch screen is very responsive. In fact, I think it is perfect. Dell Windows XP...|lock-screen-copy-iphone-apps-ipad

Ive tried several ipad alarm clock apps that have settings to disable sleep mode so the clock will continue to display the time throughout the night but as soon as I get a push notification or a calendar alarm goes off, it pushes the clock into the background and the ipad eventually goes to sleep. Ive disabled push notifications but since my calendar alarms also cause the ipad to ultimately go to sleep, this option doesnt solve my problems.Is there some way I can get this feature to work? ipad iPhone OS 3.1.2...|ipad-alarm-clock-apps-disable-screen-lock-function-work
