Result:why does my ipad keep going back to home screen

This just started today and happens in all apps, including Pages and Settings. Numerous soft and hard restarts and experiments with turning off push, wi-fi, etc. have not improved the situation. Ill reset when I get to my syncing computer, but for now this is a royal pain. Anyone else seen this or have a suggestion? ipad iPhone OS 3.1.3...|ipad-crashing-home-screen

Upgrades are nice and all but this is one I did not want. I really liked my screen lock switch next to the volume. I dont need a mute switch. The prior usage was more useful.Why did you switch?How do I get it back?The new way to access it is a pain in a butt. If I am watching YouTube, Netflix or reading digital comics it is such a hassle to go in tilt here and click this to do that. It was more instant for me to just lock what i was viewing.Please, give it back. ...|dear-apple-screen-lock-switch-ipad

ipad bought in April. Now running OS 3.2.1.For some reason, top and bottom of home screen display (and other screens occasionally)dont quite fit the screen. As an example, the words below the icons in the Dock often disappear from view and Airport icon at top of screen not visible without scrolling...its as though the default image is too big for the screen.Any ideas?

My ipad has been working fine for weeks and then about 20 minutes ago I opened it up to do some work and as soon as I typed in my pass code the entire screen became magnified. I am on the home screen right now and the icons are so large that only 4 of them (Youtube, Settings, Photos, and Contacts) can fit on the screen at one time. I have not installed anything today or done any activities out of the ordinary. I have tried a power button reset and no luck. Tried a home button + power button reset and that also failed.

As it seems there is no direct way to see if your home screen bookmark got saved in an ipad sync on the Mac, maybe an alternative approach can be done by some enterprising programmer? Why not convert the home screen bookmarks into short apps that are clearly backed up in your iTunes? I dont see the bookmarks actually saved like the Apps are in iTunes unless they are synced directly from Safari. Im hoping to find some way to access the bookmarks I created on my home screen instead of the ones that are on Safari. Anybody know of such an app?
