    Do you find yourself being slammed on your face.
    Does it just drop down in front of you ?
    Does your finger slides on the display and fast forward your pages ?

    Remember it is at least twice as havy as a normal book. dropping it on the face is not that pleasent:):):)

    Any experience you have will be welcomed

    I had that happen to me a few times while I had my ipad before I returned it lol Still have that issue with my iphone, luckily thats a lot lighter and smaller so it usually just falls on my chest, rather than my face lol

    I was lying on my side, holding it in landscape, but locked in portrait mode. Fell asleep browsing the web and it fell over and the corner smacked my eye.

    Not a happy bunny haha

    I fell asleep with it one time, and when I did it fell on my chest and woke me up. I try to put it up if I get real drowsy so it doesn't happen too often.

    I'm too giddy to fall asleep when I use it... It's like electric cocaine or something (hyperbole?.... Yes :D)

    I've fallen asleep in a recliner while holding the iPad with both hands. When my wife comes out and finds me that way, she tries to put the iPad away for me. I say try, because apparently (I never remember), I put up a fight.

    Picture the opening scene in Young Frankenstein where the guy is trying to pull "The Book" from the Baron's corpse's bony fingers death grip. :p

    Luckily I know when I'm falling asleep and I put it away before doing something painful :lol:

    I tend to lay on my back, with my iPad resting on my chest. More than once I have almost taken out my front teeth. So, yeah...I put it away when I get tired. But it is so tempting to take the thing everywhere and try to push a bit more of whatever for the day.

    I end up snuggling with mine. Whenever I get a boyfriend, he's going to be jealous. ;)

    When I fall asleep, the ipad falls onto my chest. However, I'm also sitting with my back against the arm of the couch.

    Yep. Have (had) the marks to prove it.

    Now, I prop it up to the side so it is self standing. So when I fall asleep, nothing happens. My face is happy now. :)

    I was a little drunk and I decided to take my ipad to my bed with me. I was also looking at in portrait mode with it locked. I just passed out. Woke up with the ipad as a pillow with a little drool on it. No harm done. Could have been alot worse.

    I lay on my belly with the iPad laying down in front of me. Main advantage of the virtual keyboard is no more QWERTY face like I used to get when I used the laptop in bed.
