When the switch is set to Silent mode — the down position, with an orange dot visible on the switch — your iPad doesn't make any sound when you receive new mail or an alert pops up on the screen. Note that the Mute switch doesn't silence what we think of as "expected" sounds, which are sounds you expect to hear in a particular app. Therefore, it doesn't silence the iTunes or Videos apps, nor will it mute games and other apps that emit noises. About the only thing the Mute switch will mute are "unexpected" sounds, such as those associated with notifications from apps or the iPad operating system (iOS).
Changing this switch to control screen lock is done in settings.
The upper part of the button increases the volume; the lower part decreases it.
To quickly mute your iPad press and hold the Volume-down button.

Notifications are a way for iOS apps to provide alerts and related information. It's easy to modify them on the iPad. Go to Settings, Notifications, and configure which alerts (and accompanying sounds) will appear.
