    How/where does one acquire informaton about such things as forcing and application to quit?




    press and hold the Sleep/Wake button down until you see the red “power-off“ slider—but don’t slide this time. Instead, press and hold the Home button down until the app quits and you find yourself back on the Home screen.

    The iPad User Guide is bookmarked in Safari. It's a hierarchical document and is quite easy to use to find information of this sort.

    Here's the link to it: http://help.apple.com/ipad/4/interface/

    The information requested in this thread is in the "Tips and Troubleshooting" section.

    A free iBooks version is also available in the iBooks store.

    oh yeah that one you got in the box with the ipad!!!!!


    Dont be facetious he is only asking for help

    Don't be too quick to judge. Also, don't be too quick to bin those pieces of paper that came in the box which, among other useful bits of information, let you know how to get a copy of the User Guide.

    Or, in your brand-new machine, sitting there parked in Safari Bookmarks, you find the web version of the User Guide.

    In either of those you find the following text:

    +Viewing the User Guide on iPad+
    +The iPad User Guide, optimized for viewing on iPad, is available at help.apple.com/ipad.+

    +View the guide on iPad:  In Safari, tap , then tap the iPad User Guide bookmark.+
    +View the guide as an ePub book on iPad:  Download the free iBooks app from the App store, then download the iPad User Guide from the iBookstore. See iBooks.+
    +Add an icon to the Home screen for convenience:  When viewing the guide, tap , then tap “Add to Home Screen.”+
    +View the guide in a different language:  Tap Languages below the name of the guide, then tap the language you want.+

    And finally, don't assume that just because you never found or bothered to look for it that no one else has either.

    Well, there's the one that's included as a Safari bookmark on every iPad and there's the one available at no charge from iBooks and there's the one here:

    Have you made the slightest effort or do you expect us to spoon-feed you?

    Thank you! Powering off worked for me.

    The power down solution worked great. Thanks for the help!

     

    And just just because the manual may say how to power down or force quit an app, that would certainly not have helped me use it to solve this problem.

    If you hit the home button & power off button at the same time to completely power off, this will fix the problem.  I was having the same issue, and this solves it!

    Great, worked for me too.

    Note: After holding the power button to force power off, you must hold the power button to power back on.

    thanks, that worked. I don't have a users guide (my daughter gave me her iPad 2 when she bought the new one last week.) guess I can download it to my pc. I usually do that for all my UGs. Much easier than keeping track of the paper one!

    You do have a user guide on the iPad. There is one in the Safari Bookmarks. You can download the pdf user guied to the iPad as well and you can download the iBooks version of the user guide.

     

    This has been explained twice in this discussion already - I'm not trying to be a jerk - but you have to pay attention to the instructions in the various posts.
