My iPad worked fine for a few weeks (aside from wi-fi connection issues), but now the screen is frequently unresponsive. I need to repeatedly tap, rub, hold icons for 10-15 seconds before it does anything. At first I thought I just had cold fingers, or the screen was dirty, or something else... But it's happening more and more.

(I've been an iPhone user for years, so I'm not new to touch screens. This is definitely not normal compared to an iPhone or Touch.)

iMac (2.0 GHz G5, 1.5 GB RAM) and PowerBook (1.5 GHz G4, 512 MB RAM), Mac OS X (10.5.5)

Schedule an appointment so you don't waste to much time waiting.

If something is not working right, restarting or resetting iPad will likely solve the issue.
