    Sometimes while using my iPod Touch, the touch screen just stops working. Like, touching the screen would do absolutely nothing. I'd need to press the top button (power button?), unlock and it'd work again for a while. Sometimes this happens, other times it doesn't. Sometimes it lasts longer, and sometimes it's short. Anyone know what the problem is? How I could fix it? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    It's most likely a hardware defect.

    Try a restore of your iPod and see if that changes anything. If it doesn't, then the likely answer is a hardware defect, and you will have to take it back to Apple and have it replaced.

    D'aw, really? How lame. I've restored it a few times, so I guess it's a defect. Though this wasn't happening before, I wonder what caused it...
    Anyway, thanks for the info. By the way, do you know if there's any fee for taking it to Apple?
