This happens to me when using Safari. It's extremely annoying when it happens during the middle of filling out a form on a web page. Certain sites seem to be very prone to this problem. For example, http://www.eonline.com/ is one where I can't look at their home page for 15 seconds before the iPod touch returns unbidden to the home screen.
This is a totally unacceptable problem. What is the remedy?
I've just begun encountering the same problem also. I'll be on a web site
and all of a sudden for no apparent reason the screen goes blank and the home
screen comes up.It's become very annoying since it happens way too often.The
battery is charged,the browsing history is cleared.It's done it for several days and at several locations. It seems to be the ipod and not the internet connection.
Please if anyone has any insight please post it here. Thanks, Scott
Safari has become completely unusable. I thought it was my default home page, but Yahoo and the iPod Touch page on the Apple web site slowly complete their load, and even if I do noting Safari crashes back to the iTouch home screen.
YouTube crashes, but less often than Safari.
*Music Player* becomes extremely unreliable in cover flow mode, but has been well-behaved as long as all I do is select a play list, shuffle it, play music, and never flow covers in cover flow (I can view it, but nor touch it).
Any of these crashes has the potential of dropping the history of play count increments and last played dates.
I've restored the firmware at least twice, with no improvement.
So my fancy, many-featured and expensive iPod Touch can only be really used to play music...as long as I do so carefully.
If I ever get the time, I'll put a call in to Applecare...
I kept on searching and found this thread:
In it, "AAPL" suggests:
+You could try a reset, but I don't have a lot of hope that will fix this.+
+Hold the Home+Sleep buttons until it reboots to the white Apple logo - ignore the shutdown prompt.+
+Once rebooted, does it work any better?+
Now I don't know how long this will last, but I must say Safari has worked longer for me just now than it has in weeks!
