    On at least 4 occasions, my iPad2 has started to play music, when I wasn't even near the iPad. Yesterday, I was on the other side of the room, and I heard music coming from the iPad and I hadn't touched it for over 18 hours!! When I opened the Smart Cover, I had to enter my password first, before I could even get to the iPod feature. When I opened that, I saw that the song which was playing, hadn't even been selected. Very weird.

    I'm getting ready to reset the iPad,but ... any thoughts?

    Completely turn it off and turn it on, sometimes those devices get a little spooky over time and just need a simple reset. As long as everything works, it should be fine.

    probably "The End" by The Doors or something.

    I would try double-clicking the home button and closing all the apps on the multi-tasking bar before doing a shut down and restart. If the iPod app is open on the multi-tasking bar it is capable of playing music in the background.

    this happened to me sometimes when i had the smartcover on it or when i had the apple bluetooth keyboard attached and the cat stepped on the keyboard,
    got rid of the smartcover by giving it to the cat to scratch on :D

    This exact thing happened to me!

    Its playing right now, some low tempo trancey type stuff. I shazamed the song and all that comes up is some meditation track on amazon. Very weird!
    I recorded the loop for future reference.

    It’s 2018 and I have this problem with my iPad- it starts up when I lose an internet connection so have to turn everything off and on!
