Default How to stop iPad from downloading multiple updates?

I just turned on my iPad and discovered that heaps of icons had a status of "waiting" - as if the "Update All" button had been pressed. Except, I haven't pressed that button.

Is there a way to stop this? I tapped each icon so that "waiting" turned to "paused", but how do I stop it from updating heaps of apps I don't want to update?

I'll probably try deleting the paused ones from the iPad and then re-sync it.... Anyone got any better suggestions?

Not sure if this works or not, but you could try restarting the device. I used to do this (OS 3.0) when I would accidently download an app.

If that doesn't work, you'll probably have to delete and re-sync.

Edit: Nevermind, just tried it and it didn't work.

Yeah, I tried that too...

Just trying a normal sync to see if that does anything.

It doesn't work anymore? I know I used to (with WiFi off) restart my iPod and it would work.

This was in the days of 4.0 though, so I don't know now.

Normal sync didn't help.

Restarting with wi-fi off didn't help (but thanks for the suggestion).

Looks like I'll have to blow away a bunch of games. Might wait till tomorrow in case someone posts an answer.

Just out of curiosity, why don't you want to make the updates?

(I have several that I am not planning on updating myself, but just wondering anyway.)

There's not enough space on my iPad to update everything. I've got heaps of games that need updates, that i'm not interested in updating until I'm ready to play them again.

The moment I start playing an older game, I update it first. I should probably just remove them, but I always plan to come back to them!
