I have the iPad Mini with Retina Display that is about a year old. Over the past couple of days, there have been a couple times where when I swipe to unlock, the slide bar only moves a little bit, and it fails to unlock. I have tried going from Portrait to Landscape, and tried again, and had the same issue. When I turn the thing off and back on, everything works fine.

Any ideas what may be causing this? I haven't updated the iOS anytime recently, so I don't think that's affecting anything. I am currently on version 8.0.2 and have not jailbroken this device(yet).

Try a hard reset. It often fixes glitches like that. Press the home and power buttons at the same time and release them when you see the Apple logo.
