    For some reason my iPod Touch's power button only works when it is plugged into the computer and charging and i can use it to turn off the screen and every normally
    But when i unplug it, the power button doesnt seem to register at all, i push it and nothing happens, i hold it down to power it off but nothing seems to happen either

    Bring it to the apple store [Restore from jailbreak if jailbroken]

    i have tried to restore a few times, but it does the same thing after every restore
    i would take it the apple store, but my iPod is out of warranty now..
    do have any idea why it wouldn't work?

    and it's not jailbroken either

    looks like a hardware problem, you might be able to repair it for cheap though!

    I actually have no idea, it's quite strange that it only works while charging

    if it was software, a restore would fix it.
