I don't know whether this is an iPad 2 issue, an iOS update issue or both, but it is driving me a little crazy. Programs, YouTube, Safari are all crashing to the desktop. It isn't like it happens every 30 sec., but 15 to 20 times a day, my iPad 2 reverts to the desktop. There isn't enough specific repetition to say it's a certain Location where it occurs. There is one website,, that is guaranteed to crash when I scroll thru it's pages looking at skins for my iPad. I have soft reset the device several times. The iPad 2 is awesome, which makes this glitch more infuriating.

    Can't say that i've had any issues, only had it for a week but it has been flawless so far. Have you tried a restore?

    I have the same problem, my iPad 2 even restarts randomly :s..

    It's a great piece of hardware, but is really annoying.

    It could be an issue with insufficient ram?
    iPad 2, iOS 4

    Had mine since release day, never crashed.
    Did you restore a backup from an iPad?

    Do a full restore and set as new.
