I have the 1st iPad and am wondering if I can update if I only have a iMac G5 running os x 10.4.11 ? Would I have to upgrade to 10.5 ??
Very confused about all this...also I saw on here that ipads can sleep ?? Or is that just the iPad 2 ?

You will need to be running Leopard (10.5.8) at a minimum. I'd suggest it's time to start saving for a new(er) computer, as you are going to run into this problem more and more often as time goes on.

All iPads sleep by pressing the button on the top of the device. All iPads can be shut down by pressing and HOLDING the sleep button until the "slide to power off" graphic appears on screen. It's advisable to actually power off the iPad every few months or weeks.

Ok thanks, I was thinking of sleeping like a desktop does...I know how to do what you said. I shut it down and charge it every nite when I go to bed
