I'm embarrassed to ask, but I have a new iPad, I synched it with my iTunes, I hit the iPod app button and picked a song to play, but I cannot figure out how to shut down the iPod app so the music just keeps playing.
With the advent of multitasking, Apps no longer actually shut down when you press the Home button. Before long there are lots of Apps on the task bar.I regularly go to the task bar and shut everything down. Is there a simple way to close Apps completely when you are finished with them? By the way, do Apps on the task bar consume power even while the iPad is in sleep mode? Recently I was surprised to hear the sound that indicates new mail while the iPad was in sleep mode.
This morning I was having trouble with mail (getting only a white screen while everything else on the ipad worked great. I read a message suggesting I shut down and restart the ipad. I pressed the on/off button, moved the red slide on the top of the screen per instructions and saw the rotating wheel come up in the center of the screen. My understanding as that it would last about 10 seconds; go away and I would be able to restart the machine. It's been turning for almost 15 minutes. The Ipad is unresponsive to anything I touch at this point.
I've noticed that occasionally an app (Sudoku in the most recent case) don't power down after a period of time. Same with my iPhone. I just returned to my iPad to find that Sudoko had been on for the past 2 hours running down the battery. Is this an iPad issue or an app issue. I have Auto-Lock set for 2 minutes. Is there a way to prevent this short of shutting down open apps every time I'm through?
My iPad 2 spontaneously has stopped responding to my MacBook Air. Despite multiple rebooting of both devices, and replacement of USB cable, when i plug in iPad, it launches iTunes, but then i get the spinning beachball. Once this occurs, i can also no longer successfully power down the iPad, the spinning widget spins and spins and forces me to do a reboot of the iPad to recover.
New user here. Anyone else having problems powering up their unit after it's been shut down? Mine does power up but often I get the round circle going for a while then it's shuts down. On a second try I get the Apple logo and it goes on properly from there. Using a new 32GB with 3G.
My iPad 2 3G when I'm browsing web by safari it shut down itself and couldn't restart for a set time, it could be open after it shut down but just until the apple logo came out and it shut again. I just get my sim for my iPad did it the problem of my sim because it will no happen before I get my sim for it...
I shut my ipad 2 down ths afternoon to save some battery life like you do, but when i did it, it didnt shut down prperly. ts stuck on the little round curcle that you get when something is loading. I cant turn it off and i cant turn it back on. Its just frozen wth this little annoying curcle constantly going round. Ive tried to connect to itunes to do a master reset but it comes up with there is an error on your ipad connot connect. Ive also tried holding the power button for upto 30sec at a time to see if that would work, but it failed.
I have never had any problems charging my iPad,but now it will only charge when shut off. When I turn it on,it either says "not charging" or when I unplug it then plug it in again while it's on,the power bar is green,but the % slowly decreases as I use it. I have rebooted it numerous times with no change. I saw another post about charging problems,but I don't know if his still charged while shut off as mine does,or not at all. I'm glad I can,at least charge it when not in use,but the battery runs out and it's frustrating. I have the original Apple charger but have switched out the cord a few times with no change.
I can't able to shut down my iPad. I recently notice this problem. At first I was thinking that it may be a problem of shutdown key. So to make that sure I drain my battery completely and it turned off. Than I try to open it and amazingly it start up. But then I can't able to shut it down again. So I am into a middle of dilemma, am I doing something wrong or the button broke. But I don't understand If the button is broke than why I am able to start it up. I still have warranty but if the button is not broke and I am doing something wrong.
I have bought an iPad 4 2 weeks ago, but it had few dead pixels on it, so I got another one as a change, but this one is even worse... I mean, it seemed to be ok for an hour, and then it just went mad, and like "died".
I did all the steps that I had to do on the new iPad, and got to the "desktop". To make it sure, that everything works fine I started to run through the apps and info inside the iPad. When I reached the camera app a weird thing happened. When I checked if the frontal camera was working, half of the display went purple, and after few minutes, it completely died. I saw the camera buttons, but camera didn't show anything. I restarted the tablet, still. Then I deleted all the settings and set back again as a new iPad. It solved the problem. The camera app and everything else worked fine. I was playing a game after that (Aphalt 8) and it was weird as well. Quality was worse than 1st iPad's was... like lower resolution or something. After few races, I said it's good. I was wrong. After half an hour, I just noticed as I was passing by it, that there's the apple logo on it's screen. It just shut itself down. I started it again and seemed okay, but for a sec it was weird. Then I left it again, turned on. After another half an hour, when I wanted to use it, surprisingly I found it turned off again. It was suspicious. I picked up and tried to start it, but it just didn't happen. Then I pressed home and power button for enough, still nothing... It was on 80% when I left it... After that I still tried to charge it, but charging icon didn't even pup up, after another 30 mins, I tried again the power and home buttons (separatedly as well) but nothing.
ive been using it for three weeks now amd it seems i see that warning every day. im not sure it is me using ipad for too long time or the ipad itself has the problem. i talked to a guy ini retail store and he told me it is all apps problems causing many malfunction not the hardware. but im not really convinced. because i have a safari problem too. while i use safari it just dissapear and shows the homescreen. is it. beacause i used it too long? i play many apps and it always show low memory warning and recommend to restart the device. is it normal behavior or it has some kind hardware problem as it has safari preoblem as well? please share your experience with low memory warning or shut down apps and safari. Other OS
Among other problems after updating to 3.2.1 yesterday, now my iTunes keeps shutting itself down. It will show a "Updating Library--this may take a few minutes" message and then will shut down. Sometimes it will let me play a few songs and then shut down.I am really ready to restore my iPad to factory settings to verify if it's the update or the device that is at fault. Before I do that I thought I'd post it here.Information:22" 2.66 Intel iMac Mac OS X (10.6.4)iPad 3G 16GB, iPod Touch 8GB, 4G iPod Nano, 5G 30GB Video iPod, iTunes 9.11
I was using my Ipad on the back of a boat for about 15 minutes and it shut down due to over temp. I called tech support and was informed that the fix was not to use the iPad in the sun. I explained that it was only 70 in Boston and that met their specs. Wrong their specs are for the inside temperature. I guess no one who goes to the beach or likes to read outside should purchase ipads. I tried to convince them that this was a serious design flaw and was informed that it wasn't and this was my problem. I then stated that a warning should be placed on their web site that the Ipad will not work in sun light. They stated their specs covered that. This is a serious design flaw that Apple is trying to bury and blame on how the customer uses their product. I would not like to recall a million units however they blew the design and expect their customers to tolerate their stupidity. Since this is the first majot Apple product I have purchased I ask is Apple always this bad?
Just got my brand new iPad today and already loving it (first Apple product) - seeing all the things it can do.One of the cool apps I found is called Weather HD. Basically just overview of weather and temps and forecast with a nice HD movie accompanying whatever weather it is (for example, it's clear here tonight, so showing just a few clouds moving against a starry background with moon; a couple different looking movies around this theme play). If it were raining, it'd show rain. Pretty sweet - what I've chosen to use it for (depending on the answer I get here) is prop it up with the case and turn it into basically a weather frame when it's charging. However, my one concern is, while the movie changes, some of the white text does not move, and the screen doesn't shut off either during this. So essentially you've got words on the screen in the same place all the time this is running. I know LCD's today are much better about burnin than of years ago, but am in in danger of burnin if I run this?
I've had my ipad since lanch day, use it several hours each day, and haven't had any problems. However, yesterday I was playing some games on my iPad as usual and everything was fine. Then I took a break, hit the sleep button, and set it down on my couch. I came back 5 minutes later and went to unlock as usual....except the screen just remained black. Apparantly, it had completely shut down on its own (I've never had this happen before). So I tried turning it back on (several times), but nothing happened.
I thought maybe the battery had died (even though it said it was at 40% before it shut down). So I plugged it and tried turning it on several more times with no luck (by this time I was really starting to sweat, and I thought maybe the battery or even the screen had died)........ then it finally turned on after about five minutes of trying.
When it came on, it said the battery was still at 40%, and I unplugged it and let it run down to almost 0, before charging it back to 100%.
Any idea what happened? Everything seems completely normal again, but I'm almost scared to unplug it now.
On this iMac there are a number of ways - if I get a Safari window that is totally frozen, but I have a window on my iPad and I simply cannot escape it?!
Turning Safari on/off with the button at the bottom does not work .. Pressing any one of the active points on the window (it's a NWS radar location..) does not .. Going into prefs gets me nothing ... There's no visible system restart...
