    Hey, thought I'd pass this on.

    Mysteriously, my iPad started fading to BLACK when I triple-clicked the home button to activate Voice Over (wanted some text spoken to me on a web page).

    Well, it had been working so well prior to this... now... everything always fades away. After being too lazy to do anything about it, I finally gave up and Googled the problem from a few different angles, before finding this:

    What's this? "Screen curtain"? Never heard of it before. Sure enough, however... one triple-tap later, and my screen was visible again. Problem solved!

    With a name to call it, I Googled again and found this response:


    Some poor guy actually restored his iPad to get out of this mode. Yikes.

    At any rate. I word to the wise. Also, someone posted these URLs for anyone curious to learn more about Apple accessibility gestures.
