i currently work for a museum in Germany. We decided to use iPads in our next exhibition. The visitor can take the iPad and turn the pages in iBooks. To prevent leaving the application, we will cover the home button with a piece of acrylic glass. Our aspiration is to keep the feel of an iPad, thats why we decided against a complete cover. Our only problem left, is the Homebutton, which is free accessible. Can we either remove the function somehow, preventing the visitor to turn the iPad off or do we have to cover it physically?


thanks & best regards



iPad 2, iOS 4.3.3
