    I am listening to my iPod, and I have noticed that the screen will randomly turn on to the "slide to unlock screen" as if there is a push notifacation it has for me, or an alarm or something, but nothing pops up.

    ideas?

    Could be a VERY sensitive home/unlock button? Try setting it on a table and leave it alone and just watch it for a while to see if it turns on.

    It probably is, or maybe even the lock button, it freaks me out sometimes because i never recall pressing it.. but apparently you can press without notice.

    That is what I thought, but it was just sitting on the sofa, I never touched it, and the same thing happened on my desk in Chemistry today. I am not hitting anything.

    Any more ideas?

    Try a restore. If that doesn't help, it's most likely hardware related. Ring up Apple and tell them your issue, they'll probably help you out.

    Nope.

    And I really don't like restores, just because they take forever, but I will give it a shot later. Thanks.
