My iPod will not shut off I have tried holding down pause and I have tried resetting it and nothing will work. It has never done this before. I have also left it alone to see if it will shut off on its own and nothing happens???
The iPod should turn itself off if left alone over night, and go into deep sleep mode after several days. Do you have the hold switch on? Is a song playing? Try doing a complete restore. Erase everything on the iPod and reinstall the firmware. If nothing else works, it's time to send your iPod in for service.
