    Guided Access Mode

    I have an iPad4 stuck in guided access mode. You can press and hold the home and power keys to make it reboot and it re-opens straight in to pages and you can do nothing else with it. If you press the home key three times like it tells you to, the box pops up so you can apparently turn of guided access mode, but it doesn't turn off. It's iOS7.

    Any suggestions other than wiping it? It's managed by our MDM (bottle rocket) and telling it to "Repair" didn't help. It has no passcode.

    Thank you

    Stuart

    Nevermind, sorted! We rebooted it by holding the home and power buttons, then when the apple logo appeared holdnig them both again to reboot it while it was already rebooting. This seemed to break the cycle and it's now out of guided access mode.
