    Just bought a mini retina. All OK except a weird thing on powering up from completely shut down. The home screen and swipe bar only appears for a split second before the iPad sleeps.You can press the home button and everything re-appears as normal, but it seems odd that you are not given time to enter the code the first time! The auto lock is set to 2 mins; I have conducted both hard and soft resets (i.e. I have restored factory settings)

    Is this normal?
    Is there a reason behind it?

    Thanks - it's not a big issue, but it is a little strange.
    iPad, iOS 7.0.4, mini retina

    OK - let's phrase it another way. Does anyone with an iPad mini RETINA with 7.0.4 loaded NOT have this issue ... i.e. when you run a full start up sequence from total shutdown, the home screen DOES stay on for enough time to enter a code? Thanks.

    Same thing happens on my rMini ... perhaps just normal behavior.
