For the OP - the only fix is to jailbreak your iPad.

Apologies if that came across as arrogant. I appreciate that there is a few more steps involved but can I ask what apps you lock and which ones you don't? as the only reason I have found for locking mine is when you are trying to type whilst lying down/sitting at a funny angle

It's annoying. And it's twice a day, every day. And people that use the orientation lock once every season are constantly blithely dismissing the issue, which doesn't help. No offense, as it isn't just you.

Since I use the same photo file as a screen saver on my MacBook as is synced to the iPad, some photos need to be oriented differently to show properly on the iPad screen vs how they display on the MacBook.
So I use the lock switch to anchor the photo. I cannot do that easily after the update while showing someone photos merely by clicking once anymore.
The iPad user should be given a choice as to which use the switch is set in the settings.
I'm seriously considering jail breaking to restore the switch to orientation lock.

I guess some find the software way to be more "cool", when the funcational, and practical way would be to have a user controlled option in settings.
but really, the iPad is not a phone. It does not need a mute switch, if you want to mute the ipad, press and hold the down volume button and a second and it will mute it self.

I'm so glad they decided to make it an option. I personnaly don't see the need for a mute switch, but its nice to see an option.
I wonder if iOS 5 will support landscape home screen on the iPhone? (The dock would be on the side, rather on the bottom in landscape mode)
