    So, I notice that with regular use, my home button on my rMini works. Especially once the iPad is being used with apps/etc.

    But when I lay it down and don't use it for 2 hours, then hit the home button it doesn't respond/light up.

    I have to hit the power button on top to get the screen to light up and then the home button starts working.

    Is this normal? Is there a fix for this?

    Sorry to say, I've never had that problem in my rMini.

    This could be software. I have this on my iPhone 4 as well. Sometimes when I hit the home button and shortly after the power button it takes a screenshot. So its working but its response is delayed. Try it and if it too takes a screenshot its not on the hardware side. Since i reboot my iPhone every two to three days while charging this symptom became rare, which makes me even more to think it be a software related issue.

    Just woke up and it's doing it. First press and there's absolutely no response. Second one and it works.

    Personally I'd do a clean restore, try it then, if it still continues to do it I'd get they iPad changed.
