For several weeks my iPad has occassionally moved from one application to the next without my command. Examples: In the settings it will open and close icons, in emails it will use the key pad and move from one  letter to the next, and when I try to close an application it will open another without my command.

The only way to stop it is to hard stop it but in a few days it will begin again.  This has become more frequent.


Is there a setting somewhere or is this definately hardware?

Is you iOS up to date? Hopefully this helps.  If not, Here is the worse case way around it:

 
 
1) Download latest itunes to a computer.
2) Connect ipad to the computer using white usb cable.
3) Transfer all purchases etc.
4) Disconnect from itunes.
5) go to settings on the ipad and choose the General option, scroll to bottom and select Reset.
6) choose erase all content and settings.
7) reconnect the ipad to the computer. wait for itunes to find the ipad.
8) on the ipad select set up as new ipad etc until it shows the icons.
9) on itunes select restore ipad.
10) leave itunes to download the latest software. it might take 30mins. dont touch it.
11) when the download is complete it will restore the ipad with latest software.
12) go to settings and switch off Bluetooth. turn off Multitasking gestures. select keyboard and turn off split keyboard. turn off the following too; auto correction, auto capitilisation,check spelling and shortcut.
 
that's it, ipad should now be problem free.
