    Only two times so far where my ipad has become unresponsive and had to do a reboot to get it going again.
    Neither the five finger gesture or pressing buttons has done anything.
    Is it just me ?

    I had mine stuck on the sleep screen(off) and had to keep playing with the sleep/home button until I saw the home screen. I knew it wasn't off, but instead frozen for some reason. This happen 2-3 times since receiving it, but hasn't happen today.

    Mine has froze once so far. And last night I was in safari and iOS crashed and rebooted immediately. Never had that happen before on any iOS device!

    Last night I went to wake it and it would not turn on. I knew it had around 90% battery since I just used it like 5 minutes before that. Only way I managed to get it to come back on was holding the power + home button and eventually it turned on as if it was off. Really weird...

    Same here...

    This also has happened to me. Blank screen and would not awaken from sleep. I tried doing the boot buttons, but it did nothing. It finally popped back on it's own after a minute or so, to the home screen, so it never did reboot!

    I am concerned. :confused:

    Mine freezes about every third time I type the contraction for 'did not'. Not every time but a lot. Requires killing Whatever app I'm in (usually Safari but also in Notes) in the multitasking area.

    I'm pretty sure its software glitch from 8.0 but I've reported it and it's still not fixed.

    I've also picked up my new iPad to find a blank screen... Unresponsive for several minutes. This has happened at least once a day since I bought it last Friday. I'm feeling a bit disappointed as this is my first iOS device, and I came here looking for stability. Otherwise an amazing device.

    happened to me once - i expect that phenomenon to disappear, within the next ios bugfixes and when all apps are updated. i've also had some apps that worked perfectly fine on my old ipad 1 (not air) crash on startup.
    - safari sometimes does not respond when i click (touch ?) a link on a freshly loaded page until i make a pinch zoom or something else. (sometimes it seems, that it's loading the linked site in the background, but it gives me no indication that he link was activated.
    - and third: what's with all the graphic hiccups? - it got double the ram and a much faster gpu/cpu combo, but sometimes still hangs for fractions of a second in graphic intense games like asphalt 2, real racing, infinity blade or zen garden. as these games were made for the air 1, i can only assume that's because of some developer's tricks to get around the 1gb ram limit. (maybe the games are that optimized that they don't benefit from the added ram yet). i hope it's not a bottleneck somewhere in the hardware.

    I'm also seeing the safari link issue.. A zoom in seems to fix it every time. Glad someone else mentioned it.

    I've also had most of these quirky faults occasionally with my new Air 2. Mainly random freezes which sometimes take a hard reset to clear.
    Never happens on my other Air which is still on 7.
    Bit irritating but I'm hoping Apple will fix them sooner rather than later.

    Was clearing out emails last night when it hung on me and went dark; several reboot attempts did'nt do the trick. I was just about packing it up back to Apple when it suddenly sprung back to life:confused:

    This happened once so far since unboxing on Friday.

    Did you folks set it up as a new iPad or from backup?

    I have gotten a freeze and lock issue with a game but it clearly is a problem with that app as I checked reviews on the store.

    No other freezes/lockups other than that. I set it up as new Ipad.

    My Air 2 has frozen while in Safari a few times. Hitting the home button, and going back to Safari un-freezes it, but I loose what I had typed. The last key I hit stays grey, until I go back after hitting the home button.

    Have had two freezes here.

    Never happened before with every prior model.

    Same issue with Air 1 however only freezing with Safari, especially while writting a comment.
