    Anyone else facing issues when trying to cancel Guided Access on iOS 8 GM?

    When I enable guided access for an app and after that work is done, I triple click the home button to cancel it, the screen to enter the code for disabling it doesn't show up. Have to reboot my phone to use it again.

    I have found that Guided Access in general is a little buggy since updating my son's iPad to iOS 8 (and 8.0.2 as well). After having it on for most of the day in stand-by Guided Access seems to fail to engage unless I do a hard restart of the device. I haven't been able to keep a record of how many times GA can be engaged without having to restart as I'm at work all day, but generally by the evening it needs to be restarted to turn it on.

    Any ideas as to the cause? At first I thought that the home button on his iPad was going, but it has been affecting mine and my wife's as well. I can only think that it is some side effect to the changes made to Accessibility with 3rd party keyboards etc. as some of those won't work if you have GA enabled.
