    We have found that when an I-Pad goes to sleep, the Ipad shuts off its wifi to save power, If you were flying the simulator it takes a moment for the Ipad to connect to the router once you wake the I pad up. Once this happens the IOS starts working fine, and the red warning at the top of the IOS page goes away.
