My ipad is showing a message that advises icloud has not been backed up for 2 weeks and the ipad needs to be plugged in and charging to enable back up. However, I can't get rid of the message so that I can turn on wi-fi and start back up. This has happened to me before and I ended up having to pay a one off fee of £25.00 for advice to clear the message that was quick to do. Can't remember how to do it though. Does anyone know how to unfreeze the screen please? I have tried holding the wake up button but that just brings up the swipe to power off screen, which does not react to a swipe. Please help.

iPad 2, iOS 5.0.1, icloud back up mesage
