    I returned the broken one, which was not even 30 days old, and got a new one.

    This same thing is happening to me just now.

    I bought an iPod Touch in New York over Xmas and the battery was draining really quickly. I booked a Genius Bar appointment and got a new one on Saturday. When I plugged it in on Saturday night, the home button was not responding. I took it into the Apple Store in Glasgow yesterday and as soon as I entered the store it started working and I got told I could not get a new one.

    However, as soon as I arrived home, it wasn't working again!!!!!!!!!

    How can I solve this problem?!?!?!

    This happened to me this weekend. I called Apple, and they sent me a box to send it to them in. It's still under warrenty so they said if they can't fix it, they'll send me a new one...maybe try calling Apple.

    I have this problem routinely.
    Turn it on by plugging it in, and hold home and the top button until it restarts.
    The screen will go to sleep before it restarts ,but once the apple logo comes up you should be good.
