The function that isn't being controlled via the side switch is controlled by the left-hand end of the taskbar instead : double-click the home button to open the taskbar and then slide that to the right, and it's the icon at the far left (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4085)

You can use the option in general to Mute, and doble tap the home button and swipe to the right until you see the music controls. At the far left tap the circle with the arrow on it and you should see a lock appear in the center of the circle. This locks the orientation. Simply tap again to remove the orientation lock.

So I check marked lock screen option, then went into the side bar at the bottom of the screen. I swiped to the right and saw that the square option box... Then I saw it had a lock on it, I tapped it and unlocked it. I then opened up a game and the sound was gone. I then went back into general and check marked the mute option. Before I left the screen a circle on the top of the screen went around the battery percentage. Then I exited out and again went to the Side bar Dubbie clicking the home button I then swiped right and there was a lock of the square button that showed the mute option locked backed out the auto rotation was locked open the game and the sound worked. Why is it either one or the other? P.s. tried this with 7 games so far. Hmmmm

Set the Side Switch to control rotation
Use the Task Bar to control mute; double-click the Home button and swipe to the right

Hello, I am having the same problem. I want mute AND orientation lock OFF.
When I go to general settings, I have to choose whether I want to have the side control be orientation lock or mute. Whichever one I choose, it will automatically enable the other.
I select orientation lock to disable orientation lock, and then mute is enabled.
I select mute to disable mute, and then orientation lock is enabled.
Is there a way to have both orientation lock and mute disabled at the same time?
It was like that before when I first got the iPad a few months ago.

Never mind, figured it out. There is a switch on the side, next to the volume control, that affects the orientation lock.
