So I know it's supposed to be a battery saving "feature", but upon resuming from sleep mode (assuming it's been asleep for a minute or so), it drops the connection.
Well aside from the fact I would like it to keep the connection in sleep mode, it takes a really long time to reestablish the connection. What gives? The iPhone has the same approach, but quickly reestablishes it's connection.
Every time I leave my house with my iPad and come back home, my Wi-Fi cuts out. It can still be found but it either states that the password is incorrect or server times out. My internet only cuts out when I turn my iPad back on from lock screen. And the only way I can reconnect is if I turn everything off. Information : Macbook Mac OS X (10.5.8).
I can connect my new iPad to my wiFi router (Actiontec) but after several minutes connection is lost. I need to re-sign in. I worked with Verizon to reset router per Apple instructions (kb/T53304) but nothing helped. Switching from WEP to WPA or WPA2 was useless.
It connects and within a very short while disconnects again then wont re connect till i take it out to place near the wi fi modem, ipad is in the same room as the mini and it stays connected...is there a setting i can adjust to keep it connected
Currently Iphone shuts off wifi when it goes into sleep mode and I suspect the Ipad will do the same.Which means that push on the Ipad is going to suck? Anyone have any experience how the ipod touch does this?
Hi guys!I have an issue about connecting to WIFI. My iPad 3G is unable to connect to wifi after it wakes up from sleep. If I keep using the iPad, it works very well. But if I locked it for a while, such as 3 or 4 hours, it will be unable to connect the same wifi network. The ipad displays still connect to the current wifi and the signal is very strong, but I can't access online. I tried to turn off the Wi-Fi in "Setting" and restart it. It doesn't work. And I also tried to "Renew Lease" in the "Setting". It still doesn't work. Restart the ipad still doesn't work. The only way getting online is to restart my router. After the router restarts, my ipad could connect to wifi and work very well. But my iMac, iphone, and iMac book doesn't have this issue.
How can I fix this problem? I'm troubled with this issue for a week. I really want to resolve it.
Is the ipad always connected to wifi or 4g/3g even when it is in sleep? During sleep and during use if you are not connected to a wifi network is it always searching for a network? How much battery life does push notifications use? Is there a way to turn them off? what about icloud and if you only have find my iphone on? is there a way to turn off push notifications when you are on a cellular network or it always on using small amounts of data untill you turn it off in the settings. I checked my router and it says my ipad is connected even when it is sleeping. Why is it?
If I have my WiFi turned off and turn it back on, my Router when I wake my iPad 2 from Sleep mode it doesn't connect to the WiFi Router. If I go into settings I can see the iPad 2 scanning but doesn't connect to my Router. If I close the Smart Cover and open it again, it connects to my WiFi Router. It never drops out after that. I'm leaning on it being a quirk but want to ask as I have till June 19th before I can return it to Apple.
I know that Apple recommends that you should completely drain your iPad at least once a month, but what do you do when your charging it up. What I mean is once you see The iPad at 100% Battery should you disconnect it? or if not using it keep it charged until you need it. Heard some postings on the net that you should disconnect your iPhone/iPad once it hits 100%. If you dont will this damage the battery?
My wife & I both have an iPad and we use our home Airport Extreme based network. Mine works fine, and recognizes two networks (one 5G, the other one normal network) My wife's only recognizes the 5G one, and gets disconnected constantly ("server not responding")I have tried both the network reset and the iPad reset, but the problem remains on hers.
My home network used to be secure, then I had to replace my old router with a new one. The new network is not set up as secured (yet). The problem is that my iPad now won't connect using my wireless signal at home. What do I need to do in the Settings to get it to connect? I'm having the same issue with my iPhone also.
I have read a number of things about this pairing. I have tried a number of things, but they are way to involved to make this a realistic way of moving back and forth between imac and ipad. The only way I can do it, is to just delete the keyboard pairing from the imac and then pair it to the ipad. This is not an exceptable solution. I tried others who said just disconnect the bluetooth connection. It works until I try pairing the keyboard with the ipad. I get nowhere with the ipad, because the keyboard has reconnected with the imac?
I hope this is the right forum and someone can direct me clearly. I have both and Iphone and Ipad and must admit I am not a "techy" person. Recently while on holiday in Europe I used the Ipad with an Italian sim card ( which worked just fine) however when I got home I found out I was charged horrendous data roaming charges on my Iphone. I am assuming that the data downloaded to the ipad also went to the phone automatically. I have Mobileme. Is there a way that I can temporarily disconnect the syncing when I travel, which I do a lot? Am I wrong in assuming that the data from the Ipad downloads went to the Iphone automatically?
My iPad repeatedly disconnects from the wireless network even when I am sitting 4 feet from my router. Each time, we have to retype the network password to get back on. The folks at the Apple store tell me that my iPad is fine and it is the fault of Verizon. Is anyone familiar with this issue?
I can't be the only person wondering this, but is there a way to disconnect from a Bluetooth device without forgetting it?
I have Bluetooth speakers and Bluetooth headphones and I like to switch between them frequently. Evidently, in order to do that I need to forget the first device, then repair. This becomes a big pain because I need to flip the first device into discoverable mode again to find it and pair with it.
My phone and my computer allow me to stay paired to both, but only actively connected to one, it's easy enough to switch between them that way. Surely my iPad can do that as well?
I searched for an answer but came out blank, it concerns my ipad2 synch with itunes on a windows7 machine. Can anyone tell me if it is possible to disconnect ipad2 from itunes and connect again to a newer version itunes?
After using an App made specifically for the iPad and then try to turn off/put my iPad to sleep, it does not react at all. If I then start an App which was designed for the iPhone, then pressing the button on the top of the iPad leads directly to the iPad switching to sleep mode.
This does not happen with all iPad apps. Any ideas?
I went to my Apple Tech Support people and they got my I Pad up and running. The head of tech support there said I should just leave the I Pad in sleep mode and don't have to turn it off. I've been reading different forums and there seems to be differences in what people think.
can I keep it in sleep mode? or must I shut it down?

Since I updated my iPad (which worked flawless since it's June purchase) to IOS 4.2.1, I am having issues with sleep mode. Often when the it comes out of sleep mode, it is in recovery mode and will not wake using the normal method. The only options I have to get it to start is either reboot (hold down on & home) or connect to a computer and let it detect the iPad in recovery mode and restore. Is anyone out there experiencing this?
I have tried everything, even inspected everything from the mic hole, headphone jack, speaker grill, dock connector, etc. no evidence of water damage, dust etc. my ipad wont awake from sleep, or turn on for that matter. I also put 4.2 on there, so do you think the 4.2 dev software beta bricked it?
I just received a brand new iPad for my birthday yesterday. Unfortunately, it does not appear that my Wake/Sleep button responds to my touch. I have tried pressing it once as well as pressing it and holding it down. Neither attempt worked, however.
I have 4 friends including myself on a WiFi iPads that are all experiencing the same issue:Connects fine to Router and Internet .(Unit goes to sleep).Unit Awakes by user.Units never re-connect to internet.These are all units on 3.2.1 and they are on various routers including: Linksys, 2Wire, Netgear
Does anyone know if there is a setting to keep the iPad from going to sleep? In Picture Frame mode after a while the iPad goes to sleep. Even when plugged in the dock. IMHO kind of defeats the idea of a Picture Frame.
I noticed the battery in my Touch was dropping overnight after upgrading to 4.0. I have been turning off the Wi-Fi when I am not using it and it has been holding a charge.I just upgraded both my wife's and my iPads to 4.2. We are both experiencing problems with battery drain while in sleep mode. I charged my iPad to 100% then let it sleep for four hours. When I powered it back on it was at 96%. Without using it, I checked again in two hours and it was at 94%. My wife's iPad is the same. I turned off the Wi-Fi and will check again in a couple of hours to see if it is still falling. It's obvious that something in the new iOS is continuing to draw a lot of power while in sleep mode. That would suck if I had to remember to turn off the Wi-Fi and 3G every time I stop using my iPad. Anyone else seeing the same problems with their iPad's and iPod Touch's?
just curious to see if users are leaving their ipads on but in sleep mode or completely shutting them down when not in use? And does leaving it in sleep mode for a long period adversely affect the ipad?
