I have not been using Icloud back up because it says it is at capacity, which is fine.  However now on my ipad there is a message "This ipad hasn't been backed up in 21 weeks.  Backups happen when this iPad is plugged in, locked, and connected to the Wi-Fi.    When I press the OK button or Slide to Unlock, the iPad is "locked".  When I power off, it powers off, comes back on, but I still cannot use the OK button or Slide to Unlock.  I did connect the iPad to my itunes account and backed it up to my computer.  How can I get my iPad to get rid of the iCloud message - how can I deactivate iCloud?
