Here’s a simple but handy iPad tip for when you’re using the iPad with a Bluetooth keyboard. If you’ve got Passcode Lock set on the iPad you do not have to touch the home or power button on the button to wake it from sleep mode. In fact, you can speed up the unlocking process by making use of the Bluetooth keyboard.
To do so, when the iPad is in sleep mode – just hit any key on the Bluetooth keyboard and then start entering your passcode.
