    Right mahooosive problemo here. Turned on my ipod today and the slide to turn off thing came up straight away but i just thought it was being stupid so pressed cancel and ignored it, now ive realised the power on/off/lock button isnt working i press it and nothing happens!

    Ive restored and still get the slide to turn off pop up when its turned on.

    sounds to me like a mechanical problem (the button is stuck or something). best thing is to go to an apple store and you will most likely get a new ipod.

    well if its jailbroken and u want to bring it to apple u need to restore it, so force restore, or use the restore option in itunes

    you wont be able to use force restore since the on off switch buton isnt work so just do it with the pc or if that wont work sink her in a tub of water let it dry and just say it stopped working all together for some odd "unexplainable" reason

    . I really dont want to return it its a worst case scenario. Do you think if i keep restoring it might work cause im sure its just the firmware is messed up somewhere.

    no, restoring won't work, just return it and get a new one, I don't care how far away an apple store it, just do it, it's the only way out of your mess
