    My 1 yr old is constantly grabbing my iPad while it's locked and she is trying to unlock it by pushing buttons etc. is there a set number of times that if the iPad is unlocked unsuccessfully something happens?

    I believe after more than 5 consecutive unsuccessful attempts it will get disabled for a minute, after another consecutive unsuccessful attempt beyond that it will get disabled for something like 5 minutes, then 15, then an hour, then up to a day o think (if not even for an indeterminate amount of time until connected to iTunes). Also, it enabled in settings, after 10 attempts the data might get wiped.
