I have a 3g 64 Ipad. I brought many games in itunes, the problem is that when I'm playing the games the Ipad keep closing the games and start changing from page to page without pressing any button or touching the screen. I tried to restart the original settings but didn't work. What can be happening here?

    I have the same issue with mine. My iPad is also a 3G 64GB. I will be working in safari, or in myAIM application or Twitter and it will just randomly close. It's starting to drive me nuts!

    I have a 3G 32 GB ipad and i am now seeing this across many apps. It started this morning with Safari and now iBooks, Maps, and even the App Store app closes immediately after selecting it to open. I have a tech support call scheduled tomorrow but this is now making the whole ipad unusable.

    First try cleaning your screen, if there are dirt or food on your screen it effects the touch.

    Also it sounds like it may have gotten wet (rain, sneeze etc.) to be save turn off the ipad and just let it sit in front of a fan (normal fan not heating fan) for a while.

    Go to settings and clear your safari history, cache, cookies, etc. (it is apple but there are viruses for it)

    If all else fails back it up on itunes then select factory default

    i have been having the exact same issue since i have loaded up on apps as well. i have just over 100 apps, and just over 40gb free still. Support from one of the app makers tells me the solution is to power down the ipad and then back on. (a full power down, by holding in the power button for a few seconds and then swiping the screen to confirm the power off.). This frees up any in-use memory. (Wish "memory" was listed in the ipad control panel, but thats another gripe...)
    the full power down works, but only for a few hours of usage, before it has to be done again.
    i've noticed the safari crash generally happens when i launch an embedded video in a web page and the video starts to buffer.
    so this leaves me with 2 questions...
    1. what the heck is utilizing memory in the background? (especially when 'multitasking' isnt an option on ipad)
    2. why does this issue not seem to be causing much problem for others.

    How did you Apple support appointment go?

    Powering the iPad off as described worked to solve the problem of applications closing unexpectedly. Thanks for the tip!

    I have the same issue and it's driving me nights.  I use my iPad to browse the Internet and for social media like Facebook and twitter.  So far fb and twitter have done this to me.  It just closes and returns to home screen without any prompting.  And after that happens, it won't open again.  My first iPad 2 had a bad mic right out of the box, do I need to trade this one in too?

    Try a reset by pressing the home and sleep buttons until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slider. Takes about 5-15 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings.

    I've tried that many times.  I never had this issue with my first iPad 2.  I did however update my software when I got the second iPad 2.  It's definitely a glitch somewhere because it is not reserved to just one app.

    Delete and reinstall the offending apps.

    Same problem with my iPad2 wifi. I start doing some app then BAM.. right back to Home or a Blackout. I will try resetting by shutting down and see nif that helps.

    I Just want to say I have the same problem. I'm using my ipad less as a result and my Samsung Galaxy smartphone more. There are alternatives And Apple may end up in the same place that Kodak is now, sooner than they think, if they can't guarantee adequate performance from their machines.
