    I need to know how to adjust the length of how long the lighting stays on please? I cannot locate the setting. I have iPad 2.

    Also, I need to know which is best for a keyboard when using iPad 2... I already have a separate stand for the iPad. So I believe I would only need the single keyboard, rather than the other one that comes attached and fold up with the iPad which is more expensive.
    .
    Thanks

    Are you referring to how long the iPad stays unlocked? You should find that setting in settings-general-auto-lock.

    I use a kind of old, but very good full size Bluetooth Dell keyboard. I bought a used one off of eBay for less than 15 dollars. Any Bluetooth keyboard should do. I prefer full size because it lets me type without looking at the keys.

    I agree with @Ron7624 . Any Bluetooth keyboard will due, so you should be able to find one that's great and a good value. If you are open to keyboard cases, keep an eye on NewEgg. I managed to get the Logitech UltraThin at a deep discount. It might have been refurbished. It's been a while since I bought it, but I was real happy with it.

    Thanks so much for your advice and help. It depends on how much typing I do whether or not I need a keyboard for my iPad. I used windows all my life and I've had this iPad now for over 2 years. Really liking it a lot once you get used of it. Thinking of getting a Mac soon. I say screw windows?

    I told myself once I leave Windows, I'm not coming back. I haven't looked back since. Apple just makes sense.
