How do you mean sleeps whenever you move it? Usually the iPad goes to sleep when you close the cover, or at the time interval that you tell it....such as 'sleep after 10 minutes of inactivity'.

It just shuts to sleep if I tilt it. I don't shut the cover or anything...just move it to a different position. Between position A & position B it goes to sleep. It makes the little click sound & I have re-type in my password and everything.

Just started happening to me as well.
No case...almost all apps are shut down.
Blip - and the screen goes blank and I have to type in my pword again.

Mine keeps doing this too. Anybody found an answer yet?

First troubleshooting thing to try is a set of the iPad. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider should one appear until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart. See if that fixes your problem.

Just thought I'd share my experiences here. Got my iPad 2 in August. Since then it intermittently goes to sleep when moved just as you've described. This can be whilst using an App or whilst on the home screen. I contacted apple support and had a half hour session on the phone. This involved resetting the iPad by doing the following:
They added a new user account onto my MacBook, then installed iTunes and then plugged the iPad in whilst pressing the button and and reset it from iTunes.
It didn't work, so I got back in touch and insisted on a replacement which was sorted out for me. I was told not to set up the new iPad from an iTunes back up in case there was a software corruption issue. On receiving the new iPad I set it up from an iCloud back up. The symptoms continued. I have since reset the iPad from the settings menu and also erased the contents to start afresh. I set it up as new not using any back up and the symptoms are still there. I've just tried pressing the menu button and the sleep button to reset the iPad. Downloaded some of my apps and the same thing happens.
If anyone ever comes up with a solution I'd be extremely grateful.

I may have got to the bottom of this mystery. Tonight I took my iPad out of my case as it was continually going to sleep with every little movement. It stopped when it was out of the case. I put it back in and it started doing the same thing. I realised this only happens when the cover is wrapped around the back not when it's left open like a book. I then took the case off and just put the magnetic part of the cover behind my iPad roughly where it would be if the case was on and cover was wrapped around the back. It kept going to sleep with any slight movement but only when the magnet was touching the back of the iPad. I'm pretty sure the iPad is sensitive to the magnet part of my cover. I'll let you know if this is not the case but I'm using my iPad out of my cover with no problems at the mo.

I am suddenly having the same issue with my iPad2. It definitely has something to do with the magnets when the cover when it is flipped back. The mystery is, why now? I have had zero problems using it this way for 2 years and suddenly it starts. I have had it in a Belkin cover that I love for about8 months without a problem, it thinking it could be it, went back to my Apple Smart Cover. Same thing. I really don't like using it with nothing protecting it.
I am going to go by the Apple Store today and see if they have any suggestions. I have done the reset and a complete resets a new iPad.
