Here’s a tiny tip for iPad users who often pair with a Bluetooth keyboard: tapping any key other than the “sleep/wake” button is enough to awaken *and* unlock your device (provided you don’t use password protection). I’ve been pressing the sleep/wake key for months to turn my iPad on, but it turns out I don’t have to. Tapping another key easier than tapping sleep/wake and then sliding to unlock – it’s also faster. I personally prefer the spacebar, but you could press “8″ to unlock your iPad, if that’s what floats your boat.
There we go. That’s really all there is to it. You can head back to your Friday now.
