Part 1: Reboot iPad Even It's Frozen

In most case, you can fix iPad issue by rebooting it. However, it's impossible to do a normal reboot if it's stuck. Alternatively, you may try these steps: 
1. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for several seconds. (This is the button shown in the diagram above this article.)
2. The iPad will prompt you to slide a button to power off the iPad. Follow the directions on the screen by sliding the button from the left side to the right to reboot the iPad.
3. If the iPad is completely frozen, the "slide to power down" message may not appear. Don't worry, just continue holding down the button. After about 20 seconds the iPad will power it down without the confirmation. This is called a "forced reboot" because it will work even when the iPad is totally unresponsive.
4. The iPad screen will display the circle of dashes which indicates it is busy. Once the iPad has finished shutting down completely, the screen will go completely black.
5. After the iPad's screen is completely black, wait a couple of second and then hold down the Sleep/Wake button again to restart the iPad.
6. When the Apple logo appears in the middle of the screen, you can release the Sleep/Wake button. The iPad will restart shortly after the logo appears.
