Have, under the direction of apple, updated the software on my 4 month old ipad2. Since then the ipad appears to take on a mind of its own at some times, opening up programmes, playing my music, locking up, not allowing me to use other applications. At this momemt am tempted to return it to the supplier as it is still well within its warrenty! Any one got any suggestions!

iPad 2, iOS 5.1

    Have you tried a reset to see if that fixes it ? Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

    Unless you are accessing the Mail app, or using another app to connects to it, it shouldn't require that data. Have you tried going into settings, seeing if there is a mail service set up or partially set up, and deleting it?

    Could be. Would at least be worth deleting it and seeing if that corrects the issue.
