Well, it has been colder than normal this winter in Arizona, but really I am talking about when your iPad freezes. It happens to me once in awhile with the Safari browser, sometimes with mail but more often with the game Words with Friends. 
So here is what to do if your App is stuck, or if you are Freezing in Arizona! (or anywhere else for that matter).

1.Leave the App by pressing the home screen to go back to the main menu. Open the multitask bar at the bottom of your home screen by swiping up on the screen with four fingers, or pressing the home button two times. Press and hold the offending app until it “jiggles”. Close that app by pressing the minus (-)
If that doesn’t work……
2. Press the power button until the slide to power off comes up (but dont power off). Press the home button for a few seconds for a soft reset of that app.
If that doesn’t work……
3. Restarting your device
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red "slide to power off" slider appears, and then slide the slider.
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
If that doesn’t work……….
4. Do a hard reset, just hold the "Sleep/Wake" button on the upper right of your iPad along with the circular "Home" button on the lower middle part of the device's bezel. After 10 seconds, you should see the Apple logo. That's the sign that you've successfully pulled off a hard reset with your iPad.
If you still have problems…..
5. Restore your iPad by connecting with USB cable to your computer (iTunes).
