Reset Taking More Time

Does anyone know what the iPad is actually doing during a hard reset? I only ask because it literally takes me 5 minutes or more to boot up during a hard reset these days. Took less than half a minute when I first got my iPad. Wondering what could be causing the delay?

Taking Much Time For Turning Off - Finding Normal Time
Just curious how long the iPad is taking people to turn on (from power off to lock screen). One of the few things I don't like about the iPhone is the wait time from power off to functionality.

Taking Long Time For Backing Up
I've been trying to update the OS to the new and the I-Pad wants to back up. I left it alone and came back over three hours later and it was about half done backing up. This is not the first time. I had basically given up backing up because of this. So I can't even get the update at this point.

Unable To Sync / Taking Time
Just noticed that my iPad (wifi) is not syncing the clock to the apple server and therefore seems to be 'losing' time. I notice that there are a few discussions around with no definitive answer. I don't believe this is a hardware or even firmware issue... but I might be wrong.
Syncing to computer helps for a bit but then it drifts again. Powering off and on doesn't help either.
Anyone else having this issue?

Taking Much Time For Turning Off - Stuck On Screen
I have done this before by turning the iPad off (hold down the top button until the "Slide to turn off" appears but suddenly the darn thing does not turn off.It LOOKS like it is turning off - I slide the red slider and get a spinning ball for a brief time, but if I plug in or just hit the bottom switch, bingo, it pops back on instantly.My first thought was maybe I'm just not giving it enough time, but no, I gave it fifteen minutes and it still was not really off.

IMessages Taking Time To Send Or Recieve
I use iMessage on my iPad both parties are on a strong WiFi connection, browsing, Facebook etc all work fine, but iMessage can sometimes take like 10+ minutes to receive a message from when it's sent. Sometimes I'll be sending messages and they go through, then all of a sudden they stop going through and don't go through for like ten minutes. I've tried closing the app in the multitasking bar, rebooting, restoring my iPad.

Battery Taking Long Time For Charging On IPad 3
Got an iPad 3 16GB black. Watched a 2 hr movie last night, full brightness. iPad was at 80% when I started watching, finished at 30% by end. Surfed a little bit before going to bed. iPad was at 18% when I plugged charger in. Shutoff (not sleep) so there would be nothing running. 8-1/2 hrs later, turn on iPad and it's only at 85%. This seems like a long time to charge. Is this normal?

IBooks Book Taking A Long Time To Show Highlight Menu
I have several books in iBooks and they work great. I also have the ESV bible (4000+ pages) and it takes a long time (5 or more seconds) to show the highlight/notes menu when double tapping a word on certain pages and I cannot figure out why. The pages are in the 800s and some have highlight and some don't. I tried moving to different pages of the book higher and lower in page number and it works as expected. SO FRUSTRATING!I've tried the following: I searched the word "the" in the book to see if by continuing to run through the first 1000 pages of the search it would maybe index the book, but that made no change. I did a soft reset on the iPad by holding down the power and home button until seeing the Apple logo. I also told iTunes to not sync the book, then added it back again later. No change.

Wifi Connection Wont Work / Taking More Time To Send Emails
I got my first iPad on Saturday and within about an hour was having issues with it kicking me off my home network.

I took the unit back and got another one and I'm having the same issues. I can't surf or send emails etc. for more than 10-15 minutes at a time.

What good is this to me? This is a device designed primarily to go online with!

None of my other wifi devices have this issue in my home including my iPhone 3GS.

What am I supposed to do?

Automatically Set Time Is Off After Daylight Saving Time Ended
After the end of Daylight Saving Time, my iPads clock is off by one hour when I set the time and date settings to Set Automatically (it says 12:15 PM instead of 11:15 AM that it should). When I turn Set Automatically OFF, it shows the correct time (when set to the same time zone as Denver). But I don't want to leave automatic time setting OFF because I don't want the iPad's time to drift. It is an iPad 3G and its OS is up to date. I am using the device on my local home network.

Makes Sound From Time To Time
I've purchased my 32GB WiFi iPad about a month ago and I couldn't be happier. Best gadget I've ever owned.There is just ONE thing that bugs me though. It's not really a problem but just something I want to identify. I'll try to be as clear as possible. Here goes : From time to time my iPad will make a sound. It's not the "new mail notification" sound. I believe it's the same sound my Mac does when it finishes burning a CD. The iPad will make this sound at irregular intervals (I think). It can do it while I am using it or when it's just sitting on my desk doing nothing. Anyone has any idea what that sound means?

Best App For Note Taking

Any suggestions on best app for note taking that can be transfered to my PC.3. Not sure which iPad to purchase. Would 3G be worth it if I am usually at school when using it? Having it there as a backup just in case would be nice. Need that push in deciding.4. Any knowledge of school books that can be purchased over iBooks yet or any other similar app? If I get my school books as PDF which app is best for viewing?

Want To See Which App Is Taking Much Space?
I have a low memory issue and want to see which apps are currently taking up how much space on the iPad (16gb). Not collectively, but individually. Have not added music, pix, videos for some time, so problem should only be from updates to apps, also info downloaded by readers like zinio, etc. I'd like to be able to selectively delete an app once I know how large it is in its current incarnation on the iPad. Likewise, is there a way to see how large the safari cache is before clearing it?

Best Note Taking App For
I take a ton of notes. And I am a big fan of Microsoft Onenote for ability to write text, draw with ink, include pictures, audio, etc.

Looking for a solution that rivals One note. Ideally would import my existing one note notes.

Would like the ability to:
* write text, draw, include photos, audio.
* have multiple folders/notebooks however you term it
* search across notes, sections, folders, etc
* option of sharing notes
* sync possibly - either with a client on laptop or with one note

Right now I am looking at School Notes Pro, mobilenoter, and Evernote.

Tried evernote when first came available with iPhone. I know it got a lot better, but would love to hear from someone using now on iPad how easy it is for my requirements above. Also, I am a bit nervous on the security/privacy front.

Mobilenoter just seems to be a couple steps back on some of the capabilities, but I like the onenote sync feature.

Any other suggestions?
