    Seems I have a phantom ipod Touch. I've woken up several mornings now to find the thing playing music even though I've hit pause and put it in sleep mode. Any ideas?

    If u pause it before sleep mode ends it might actually turn on the music... Just a guess

    If you have the mic+remote headphones plugged in before you sleep that generally causes it. It has happened with mine. Not certain exactly why, but it happens.

    Nah it's next to my bed, nothing touches it.

    @Shukketsu.Azuguad: you could be right, it does only seem to do it if I have the phones plugged in. I thought of this myself earlier but then thought 'nah that's unlikely'. But if it happens to you too I think you're right.

    That's really weird.

    Ah, there's a whole thread on it here http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2172417&start=0&tstart=0

    Seems Apple don't take it very seriously though.

    It wouldn't trigger unless skin touches it (if it was in the bed).

    This used to happen to my iPhone for some reason. I restored, and it stopped.
