I guess if I paid more attention to the power up sequence I'd be able to lock it down? I've had the docked iPad not see the DL on startup. Gonna re-read the FAQ ;) .

To be honest guys

I thought that it would be normal to leave the pad bolted in on a long term basis?

It's incredible the technology, been the shops for a wander about and I spotted a 10 inch laptop with touchscreen that splits from the keyboard for 400 euros, stuff like that don't half make the pad seem dear

It's been a few days since I used it last, but usually for me..

Power up Router (AirPort Express) - always wait for it to settle down (green LED steady)
Power up DL, which lights up the docked iPad. (usually powered off)
Load MF on docked iPad - wait for it to sync (or sink?) Always has.
Et Voila.

Then I connect the wireless iPad (always check to see if it sees the AirPort) and load MF.  I have to tell it to connect to the DL by going into the Device Page and select the available device.

This has worked everytime to date. It may all go south on me one day, of course.

If the iPad was "powered off" it wouldn't "light up" - it only does that if it is in "standby" :) .

If you dock a switched off iPad while the DL is on it boots to/via the Apple logo in the same way as it does when you start it up with the power button.

That's "unexpected" :eek: .

I actually meant it makes the iPad boot up from it's completely powered off state. Not in standby. And it also works like Sam stated too. I've done that a few times as well. But mostly docked and powered off.
And to answer Kev, yes IMHO you can leave it Docked & Locked all the time.  ;) Or this that "Locked and Loaded?  :)
