    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

    What do you mean by "sleep button broken"?

    When I first saw the title, I thought it was about "physical" breakings of the sleep button, not how to do recovery mode.

    Mods, please close this, it's pointless.
