Introduction to Your iPad

1 The Top Button

The top button is really the power button.

  • Touch the power button to put the iPad into sleep/standby mode
  • Touch the power button to turn the iPad on from sleep/standby mode
  • Touch AND HOLD the power button for 3-5 seconds to power the device on when it is fully shut down.
  • If you feel a need to fully shut down the device, when it is on touch and hold the power button for 3-5 seconds to get a red slider telling you "slide to power off" - slide to power it completely down.

If you are feeling especially brave, touch the power button AND Home button at the same time....you'll take a screen shot of whatever is on your iPad that will be stored in your Photos!
