How can I force quit an iPad application?

Sometimes an application will become unresponsive on the iPad. To force quit the application follow these steps:

1. Hold down the sleep (power) button until the "slide to power off" screen appears.
2. Release the sleep button and immediately press and hold the home button.
3. The application will quit after the home button is held down for around 6 seconds.
