First answer is right and to generalize these devices run and alter their states based on programming or programs running a do not dim screen command is part of running say like the netflix app. so you can watch without having to tap the screen to keep it on. like wise for power if there is a upgrade being installed the machine will stay on to complete it .
if there is a glitch in the programming that is being run then you get what you have . but fortunately you could unplug it and let the battery die overnite then plug it in and fully charge it before turning it back on once it has done house keeping turn it off and you may notice it is fine again. thanks for noting model specifics also.
I take it that it did not freeze just would not turn off.
my Galaxy tab S showed the little android guy on his back with a red diamond over his chest , below that it said no program chosen ,but would not let me do anything nothing worked and it would not shut off . well i started looking for my warranty information and decided that the battery would die and then i would charge and restart it. I did and it works fine today. programming and over ride corrupt programs cause problems and viruses . also light sensors . most all of this is fixed by factory resets and reloading apps and firmware updates. also there is a simple reset by paperclip in hole on side of pad i think 5 seconds but let it die charge fully and return on. if you had recently installed something take it out.

Set the auto lock for 2 minutes. Keep in mind that the iPad will not auto sleep and lock during certain application evolutions, like video, game application etc.

if it's just sitting at the spring board, it will auto lock at the specified time interval. if i took a break from my ipad to answer the phone - 993eeec1-2ff2-4698-acad-f9b1e7b2d782.jpg imthemobile guru

Ipad is disable

If your iPad has been disabled, it is completely locked down. The only way you'll be able to use it again is by restoring it using iTunes or iCloud. If you have a backup, you'll be able to recover your data, but this process will delete everything that is stored on the iPad. Except for the following methods, there is no other way to unlock a disabled iPad.
  • Using iTunes
  • Using iCloud Find My iPhone
  • via Recovery Mode
  • via DFU Mode

How to connect to internet doesnt recognize router password

Are you sure of Wifi password is correct?
if so, 1st; try restarting your ipad by holding down power/sleep button untill it show "Slide to shut down" leave it off for 10 seconds & then re-open it.enter the Wifi -password, sometimes this step works.

2nd solution ; try resetting your iPad network settings, it will not affect your ipad in any thing except it will forget all entered passwords for any wifi you have already connected before. go to General from Setting, choose resett, and inside only reset network setting, shut down ipad & try to connect to the wifi again. Hope this solution work for you. Also you may try shutting down & opening your router again after 10 seconds while off. Good Luck.

The touch screen in my Ipad stopped working. It works to unlock or to shut a screen but that's all.

Try restarting it: hold power button down until "slide to power off", power off for 10 seconds, press power to restart.
if that doesn't fix it, reset your iPad: hold BOTH power button and Home button until device resets and apple logo appears.

Why is my iPad getting hot?

Your iPad HD is getting hot for a multitude of reasons, primarily because you are using it without taking a break. Things that are most likely to cause your iPad to overheat are the following:

  • Playing games continuously for more than 1 hour
  • Not taking a break from using the iPad for more than 1 hour
  • Using 4G LTE for more than 1 hour
  • Charging the iPad while using it

All of these things are part of the core experience of owning the new iPad and unfortunately Apple kind of dropped the ball here.

Having said that, I have had many devices over the years and this probably isn't the big issue everyone is making it out to be. Just be certain to use your iPad in moderation and everything will be fine.

Won't let me play pogo games on apple computers

If you haven't already done so, you have to download the Pogo application from the iTunes app store. If your problem is with the app itself, the first step would be to reboot your device. To reboot the iPad, hold down the button on the top of the iPad until you get the option to shut down the device. Once shut down, press the same button to power on the iPad. Test the Pogo app to see if it works now.
