How to restart a frozen iOS device

You can hold down the Sleep/Wake button(button on the top that powers the device on and off) and the home button(round button the front) at the same time till you see the Gray Apple logo on a black background. Only use this for a device that is frozen or will not power down.

Ipad 2 will not power off with power button or home buttons pressed


Hi,

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on the top of your device until the red slider appears. Then drag the slider to turn your device completely off.
After the device turns off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button again until you see the Apple logo.

You should reset your device as a last resort and only if you can't restart it.
To reset, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.

how can i reset my ipod?


Please follow the below steps to reset the iPod.
  1. Press and hold the "Sleep/Wake" button. This is the main power button on the top left-hand corner of the device.
  2. Press and hold the "Home" button while still holding "Sleep/Wake." The home button is the main button on the front of your iPod touch, indicated by a white square inside of a circular black button.
  3. Hold both buttons until the Apple logo appears on your screen. Resetting can take upwards of 10 seconds. Once the logo appears, your iPod touch reboots by itself.

Thanks for understanding.
