    The power button of my iPad is acting as lock icon in my iPad3

    Hi my new iPad 3 is my birthday gift. Initially am not expert in using it so I couldn’t able to identify and fix the bugs. Now I find some of the features are not working fine and have many bugs in it. Yes the major thing i find is the power button of my iPad is working as side lock option. Whenever I tap the power button it sometimes just locks my iPad rather shutting down, is there any way to fix this issue soon.If so kindly do share some valuable ideas so that let me fix for the same.

    Friend i think that there is something going wrong in your device.I think that there is some software problem in your device.Whenever you command for the shutting down your device then the internal programming of your device did not obey your command and gave a response to you as locked your device.I think that the solution to your problem is that you should have to go to someone who has a great knowledge of the software field.

    My dear friend i think that there is some major software problem with your device.I am not an expert on it but i can give you a few suggestions.First of all you should try by a reset of your device.For that you should go to the main menu and enter settings.After that you should go to privacy settings and reset your phone.I hope that this will solve your problem but if doesn't help then you should take your ipad to apple care center and tell them about your problem.I think that your device is still in warranty so they will fix your device for free.
    Good luck!!!
