    I am having a problem where my Verizon iPad 2 will go into a state where it won't "wake up" unless you do a hard reset. It won't respond to the power or home button. I notice that this happens after the iPad 2 has been unused for a few hours. The 4.3.2 update did not resolve this problem.

    If you do a hard reset (hold home and power for several seconds), it will start back up again, but it will say that a "restore is needed" and asks to connect to iTunes. If you ignore this and turn the device off and on again, the device will finally start as normal.

    I have recreated this numerous times. Once again, the 4.3.2 update did not resolve this.

    Anyone else experience this and ideas on how to fix it? I can't say for certain when this started happening, but I don't think it started until 4.2.1. I don't know if that caused it though.

    Try restoring it, if not take it to an apple store.
