    Hey! Im having a problem with my ipod which is getting more and more annoying. Sometimes, when I have to restart or turn my ipod completely off, it turns on again but the screen is like stuck. The lock screen appears, which I can unlock. Then it lets me go into any app, but then i touch any part of the screen and it wont respond. when i click the sleep button it shows the lock screen with just enough light for me to see it, but still on. To make it work again I have to restart, either by holding the sleep button and then turning it off or by rebooting with both buttons. After around 5 tries I can get it to work right again, no problems after that. Ive searched through the forum but i havent found anybody with the same problem... Help pleaseee?!
    (oh, btw, I cant ssh, somehow the ssh app wont let me install it)


    ETA:
    I didnt have kate nor ants installed, but i had dock and never really used it. So I unistalled it some days ago and it didnt happen anymore. I also installed respring in case I had to and didnt want to reboot
    thanks everyone!

    You probably have Kate huh...

    Yea, theres your problem...

    Theres no fix for it, just a work around. Either Restore or put a Respring app on your Springboard.

    I had this with Dock.
    I'm sure theres a way to stop it somewhere but I just uninstalled dock.

    This has happened to me, and it happens every time I reboot.
    Usually after I run Cracks.app.

    yup its happened yo me aswell, after both ants and kate, am not sure about dock though... anyway am not installing all three of them again, so hopefully that should fix it.
