There have been debates back and forth about whether or not magnets will damage or affect your iPod touch, but I am living proof that they CAN negatively affect your iPod. I recently bought the Griffin Flip-Top Case for my iPod and have been experiencing problems with it ever since. It appears to work fine, but after putting the iPod into sleep mode for a while the iPod will become completely unresponsive. The only way to wake it from sleep would be to manually restart it by holding sleep/wake and home. I know this sounds crazy because the magnets in the case shouldn't be strong enough to affect the iPod, but I've been having this problem every single day my iPod is in the case, and not once without the case. I've restored to 1.1.1 with the same problem. 1.1.2 with the same problem. and 1.1.3 with the same problem. (without jailbreak) There have also been other reports of this happening (with the iPod showing the EXACT SAME symptoms. Just a warning to all those considering getting a case with a magnet in it!
