Getting Started Tips

1 Powering On & Off

Typically you keep your iPad in "standby" mode.  Touching the power button will turn it on and off.  There are some times that you want to "hard" shut down the device, such as:

  • conserving your battery life
  • as a general reset if the apps are behaving oddly (and haven't in the past)
  • quitting apps (if there are LOTS of them open)

If you hold the power button down, you will get a screen with a red bar telling you to "Slide to Power off."  Slide the bar to shut it down.

To turn it back on, hold down the power button until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
