    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    There's no way the iPad won't respond to pressing and holding the sleep switch, unless it has been broken. This will eventually (about four seconds) produce a "power off" option.

    It does not work and I have tried holding down the power off and home button to force switch off this doesn't work either. The rotate switch is not working either it is locked in portrait mode. The ipad was working fine until I did a software update earlier tonight

    Which iPad do you have and what software update did you install?

    I think you have somehow turned on an accessibility mode for people with disabilities. A screen shot sure would be useful if you can manage it.
