    I have had my iPad 1 since day of release, and it is starting to develop problems. Whilst most of these are just normal things (e.g. Lag) It has developed one problem which makes it practically unusable. Every few seconds, my iPad locks itself, meaning that I cannot do anything on it. Sometimes I can go 2-3 mins without it locking, but it's usually every 10-15 seconds. Obviously my warranty has now run out, and I do not plan on paying apple's extortionate rates for repair, so I was wondering if anyone knows what's going on.
    Thanks :)

    do you have auto lock turned on? turn that off and see if it continues. Also, have you done a reset?
