ipad mini keeps turning off unexpectedly. doesn't shut down, just have to hit start and the fingerprint sensor to bring it back up.
Try this first, a hard reboot. Hold down the Home and Wake/Sleep buttons at the same time for about 15-20 seconds until the Apple logo appears. Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it comes up. You will not lose anything.
