Try this, press and hold both the home and power buttons 10-15 seconds till the Apple logo appears. Release both buttons. Wait 15-20 seconds till your iPad starts on it's own. If they don't download at least the timer should stop.

I have now done what you said, and success! It worked, and no loss of data, which if had worried about. Thanks ever so much.
