New-to-me tip from David Chartier:

If you use an external Bluetooth keyboard with your iPad (or iPhone) as well as a passcode to lock your device, you don’t need to slide to unlock to start the process. Just start typing your passcode on your external keyboard, and iOS will figure it out.

Nice. You don’t even have to turn on the display by hitting the Home or Lock button first.
