I can connect to my wifi fine, and the signal is strong with no dropouts.If I put my ipad into sleep, or it auto-sleeps, then I awaken it, no problem- the wifi is still there.However if I come back after an hour or overnight, the wifi symbol is present on the screen, but nothing connects. I thinks it is connected to wifi but nothing works.Any ideas? ...|wi-fi-work-medium-length-sleep-ipad

When my ipad goes to sleep, I need to reset it by holding the sleep and home button down for 10 seconds. The sleep button and home button by themselves do nothing. It worked fine for a few weeks, but just started doing this.Battery power shows 75% or higher.Has anyone experienced this? Any suggestions? Mac OS X (10.5.8)...|ipad-reset-wake-sleep

Yet again, apple have failed on some thing that doesnt work or causes problem. First iphone 4 and now this. Lucky its not majour problem but if your going to update and change stuff, make sure it works on more than 1 ipad when testing. Theres so many people with the mute button not working. I can see it going back to rotation lock! The sound quick mute was better as i was just getting used it to it  iMac  iPhone 4 16GB (4.2.1)  ipad 16GB Mac OS X (10.6.3)...|mute-button-work-ipad

My ipad has an intermittent problem - occasionally the sleep button wont work at all; not to put the ipad to sleep nor to turn the ipad off. This problem appears to only occur after Ive used the ipad for a long period, more than 10 or 15 minutes continuously, otherwise it works normally.Ive already done a full restore and it made no difference.Anyone else had this problem? Anyone had this problem fixed?Thanks 3G WiFi 64GB iOS 4...|sleep-button-problem-ipad

My ipad (3rd Gen) seems to stop charging if it is plugged into my MBP if either the ipad is closed or if the MBP goes to sleep. My iPhone charges whether the MBP is awake or asleep or even if the MBP is closed. There is a screen display that shows the iPhone is charging. The ipad only has the tiny icon at the top of the screen that show it is charging. However, the battery's % charged does not increase if the lid is closed when I am charging the ipad if the lid is closed on the ipad or if the ipad off after pressing the on off button. Is this normal?...|ipad-charge-plugged-macbook-pro-mbp-sleep-iphone-continues-charge
