Well.. i have had my sleep button broken.. sucked ass for me. so i took it to the apple store and the guys there looked at me funny and asked me if i jail broke it. i said no, but im pretty sure they knew i had jailbroken it Please Register or Log in to view images! anyways, the guy at the genius bar simply put the ipod into recovery mode, hooked it up to itunes and restored it. heres what you do to fix the sleep button: Note that you will lose everything u have on the ipod 1) Press the sleep button + the home button and hold untill the ipod turns off. 2) After the ipod turns off, keep holding the home button and connect it to itunes. Keep the home button held untill itunes says it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and "you must restore it" 3) restore to it's original firmware. And then, your sleep button works Please Register or Log in to view images!
