Shut Down Your iPad For Real

When you press the power button on the iPad actually turns off just the monitor. That's why we talk so fast. What can be done to conserve battery power, or to recover from the freeze is to reboot the system. To do this simply by holding both the power button and the Home button until the red slider appears. Press and turn the iPad. Give it a minute and you can reboot by pressing the power button. It seems that a few seconds before responding so be patient.

How do I unfreeze my Apple ipad air ?

It's actually very easy, once you know how to do it. Click and hold down the Sleep/Wake button (located on the upper-right corner of your iPad). While you're holding down the Sleep/Wake button, hold down the Home button as well (located on the front of your iPad at the bottom).
Hold down both buttons until your iPad powers off. It will reboot and start again with a small silver Apple image on the screen. It takes about 30 seconds for the iPad completely start up.

my walkie talkies arent communicating when i press the ppt button. it transmits too fast before i get a chance to talk into it. what can i do to fix them? is there a reset button? they are the motorola brand.

The ACTUAL problem is your rechargeable batteries have most likely depleted over time, and since it takes more batterie power to transmit than to receive it can appear that your batteries are fully charged and you can be receiving but due to the batterie it will be unable to transmit
