It takes awhile for the update to be downloaded and the apps are queued for downloading. This usually occurs when you update many apps on the iPad. It sounds like you disconnected the iPad from the computer before the app updates were downloaded. When this happens when updating on the iPad one fix that usually works is to reset the iPad. However, sometimes you have to update the apps on the computer and then sync.Mac Mini Early 2010 OSX 10.6.6, G4 MD OSX 10.5.8 - iPad 3G & G4 Touch, iOS 4

I have the same problem and it is not an issue of it "taking a while". I have numorous apple products and have never had something like this.
I noticed it after I updated to 4.3.4 (although, I have not synced it in a few months) and now I have 42 apps that are gray and say waiting. On the apps page in iTunes, i also have 42 apps that I cant move from the last 3 pages, but those pages are not visible on my iPad. The apps do not appear to be related to each other (ie. iPad spacific or size or date). Not sure why they will not sync correctly.
Have tried hard and soft reset, resetting the home screen, restore from backup, removing all my apps and resyncing them, and pretty much everything else I have read in the forums, all to no avail.
Was going to try the time machine to take it back further that the restore from backup will, but i just figured out that I unfortunately never set it up, so cant do that.
I really do not want to restore it in fear of losing all my data that I use for work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have a ton of work stuff on it that I really can not afford to lose.

Thanks for the reply blaynerich, in my case restoring from the factory did not work. I had to go to the settings then to the wi-fi tab and had to click the forget the network. Then rejoined the network again. This worked for me.

did any of you get the apps out of waiting status successfully ? I tried the sync by downloading the app to my pc but the sync does not work for the one app in waiting status. Any help would be appreciated.
