How To Lock Icons From Being Moved Or Deleted ?

This question applies to my new 3G 64 ipad but I also have a 3GS phone. Sometimes I accidentally delete something or move it via the icons. How do I lock them from being moved or deleted after they are setup? The hold to wiggle then x to delete is dangerous I'm not changing things.

Unable To Rearrange The Dock/6 Icons Were Able To Be Moved Onto It?
As Ive been playing around with my iPad for a little while now, I decided to re-arrange the dock and realized that 6 icons we are able to be moved onto it, whether in portrait or landscape mode. Was this posted anywhere else? Or am I the last to figure this out?

Screen Lock Moved To Volume After Latest Upgrade
I'd really appreciate some help if possible. I upgraded my iPad to latest software version last week and since then when I try to lock my screen (so that it does not keep going around) I found that the lock button on the right hand side now sets the iPad to mute or not.

Dock Icons Disappeared But Not Deleted
All 6 of the icons on my dock just disappeared. But none of them were deleted or uninstalled.They weren't moved somewhere else to a different screen. I can only launch them by searching for them.Also, this happened before upgrading the OS from 4.2.1, an Apple employee suggested that I upgrade to 4.3 and sync. After I completed that, I still didn't get the icons back on the dock.

Folders Deleted, Icons Back In Original Location
After spending a considerable amount of time creating folders and moving icons into them, etc., (on the iPad) I synced (wi-fi) to my computer. When finished, everything was back to its original place--no folders, original locations. I've done this same thing on my iPod Touch with no problem, so I'm baffled, although just getting used to my new iPad2. What did I do wrong--and how do I avoid having this happen again? (I know I can move and create through iTunes, too, but shouldn't I be able to do it on the iPad, too?)

Can Apps Be Moved From The Center Of The Screen?
When viewing an iPhone app--one that is not optimized for the iPad--it appears as a small rectangle in the center of the screen. Is there anyway to move it to a more convenient position on the screen? When playing a game, for example, it's hard to reach the buttons since the whole app is in the center. If the app could be dragged lower, it would be easier to reach the game controls.

IPad 2 Switching Itself Off Then Back On When Moved?
My ipad 2 works fine - but I have found that after I use it for a long while, it is switching itself off whenever I physically move or tilt the ipad. A better description is - it switches off (screen goes blank) and then back on again - giving me the screen to put in my password? This only happens when I move the device. Is it caused by the gyro (so to speak), or the battery being low (and the gyro is trying to draw too much power - battery was at 37%), or just using the device for too long. Also, is this normal. Is this a common fault with the ipad 2?

None Of Items In IBooks Moved From The Ipad 2 To The Next Gen?
In doing a restore of my ipad2 to my new gen iPad. None of my items in IBooks moved from the ipad 2 to the next gen iPad? I did the resore in iTunes. I have tried opening books on iTunes under the ipad2 device. Selecting the books and drag and dropping into the books on the next gen iPad without success. I have several PDFs on the old iBooks app I need to port over to the next gen pad. I hoped the would just move over with the restore, but that's not the case.

Moved From Desktop To Laptop - Apps Not Syncing
I've recently ditched my desktop, as it was old and clunky, in favour of a laptop + iPad only in the house. Now, I've read around and got my apps copied onto Laptop and added back into iTunes. I've also disabled the old PC iTunes authorization and authorized the laptop with my iTunes login. All should be good, right?

Yeah, well, it's not. Apps purchased on my laptop won't Sync to the iPad, and similarly, apps purchased directly on my iPad won't Sync back to the laptop...or do they never do this? I just assumed they would so long as iPad and laptop were on the same authorized iTunes account as a matter of back up.

How do I get my apps from my iPad to my laptop? And how do I get my apps from the laptop onto the iPad when Sync'ing does nothing? (It just goes 'Preparing to Sync', Step 1 of 1, complete...with no changes to what's on the iPad or the laptop Apps folder).

IPad 3 Sleep Wake Function Moved - IPad 2 Cases May Not Work
We've been told by our supplier of our iPad 3 cases that the sleep wake function sensors are in a different place on the new iPad version 3.

So this means iPad 2 cases being used on the iPad 3 will not activate the sleep wake function even through they activate it on the iPad 2.

However we aren't 100% convinced as it doesn't look like Apple have changed their Smart Cases - it looks like they work with both iPad 2 and 3

We had to pull several iPad 3 cases (Case here) off our site today because of our suppliers warning. The iPad 3 cases sleep wake function worked when we tested it with a iPad 2. However we haven't tested it with an iPad 3 yet.

Can Put 6 Icons On App Tray
If I remember correctly, you could only have 4 with the iPhone unless you jailbreaked your phone.

You can have 6 on the iPad without jailbraking it.

Still Six Icons On The Dock?
I know early on there was some reports from people using the SDK that you could place six icons on the iPad dock? I'm concerned though that we've never seen any "official" photos of this happening. Has anyone heard if this feature is indeed a real feature. I think the dock looks pretty funny with just four icons on it. My hope was to setup the six apps I use the most on the dock and then move all the remaining apps to screen 2, leaving a completely empty home screen.

Tired Of HD App Icons
Is it just me, or is it really annoying that so many app icons have 'HD' sloppily branded across them? It almost always looks like crap and seems completely pointless. There is no non-'HD' variant of these apps on the iPad. And the app store itself now separates iPad apps from iPhone apps, so there isn't really a need for it there either. So why don't they just make them look normal?

Five Icons On Dock In 4.2?
I don't know a whole lot about iPads and I haven't seen a thread on this yet, so I just wanted to throw this out there. I thought all non-jailbroken iOS devices could only have four icons in the dock. When I was watching Steve's keynote today and he was showing off iOS 4.2 on the iPad, he created a folder of news apps. Then, real quick at the end of the demo, he said "and I can drag my folder down to my dock to" and he put it right in the middle of the four apps that were already down there, making five icons in the bottom dock.

Can the iPad already have more than four icons in the dock, is was this a new 4.2 feature that Jobs showed off but didn't mention specifically?

Can't Remove 2 Icons
They made me first removed all the apps, then re-install the apps back to the iPad. That didn't work, so then they had me do a restore to factory settings and that didn't work either. The two icons still remained and couldn't delete them from the iPad either. I got my money back for the civil war app though. They could not figure it out why the problem still exists. I am not going to go thru all that hassle again, so I am stuck with two icons still saying loading. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem with any of their apps that couldn't be removed nor be updated. The original downloads for those apps worked fine, but when it came time to update them the problem started. I'm not willing to try anything drastic again because twice was enough thru apple support.
