    As title states,

    within the last week... seemingly since the most recent update... randomly... when i go to wake my iPad1 the slide to unlock does not
    slide. screen still rotates and the light shimmer is going through the words
    but it wont unlock and i have to force a total reset to temporarily fix the problem.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue lately?

    I haven't seen that issue at all. Have you tried a restore yet?

    Try unlocking it with a magnet. It's not a longterm solution, but it'll help you figure out if the touchscreen is completely fried or not.

    This is an issue I've had with the iPhone 4 since the last update. Random, not very common, just annoying.

    Happening on my 3GS since 4.3 (complete PoS update BTW) was released.

    well finally did a full restore and since then it hasn't (yet) happened again.

    but i'm really missing gestures...need to re-enable them. hopefully that had nothing to do with it.
