Keyboard doesn't come up

I have a continuing issue where my keyboard doesn't appear on my iPad (2nd gen). I often have to power off completely, then it comes up, but sometimes if I switch between mail and safari, it disappears again. Is anyone else experiencing this? (I'm currently typing on my wireless keyboard)

Is it possible the wireless keyboard is connecting when you don't want it to? Obviously the keyboard doesn't come up when the wireless keyboard is available. Keep an eye on the Bluetooth icon in the top-right corner to see if it's lighting up when you're having this problem, or try turning Bluetooth off completely and see if that helps.

Thanks for the reply. That was my thought too, but the Bluetooth was disabled.

That was my thought as well. I've had issues where I could not figure out why in the world my iPad or Air was behaving so strange, only to find my cat sitting on my wireless keyboard in the next room.

I would try a full restore, and if that doesn't work take it to a genius.
