I was using my one week old 4th generation iPod touch and it randomly shut off. I tried pressing/holding the power button and the home button, and even both together, but nothing will happen. I also tried plugging it in to the computer, even though it had an almost completely full battery, and neither the iPod or computer did anything. How can I turn my iPod back on?

    Same thing happened to me today!! I kept pressing the off button over and over, not holding it down just tapping it, and it turned back on!

    I have the same exact problem! I also tried plugging it in to the computer or charging it with different cords and nothing happened. This ipod is brand new and I never had this happen in the 3 years I had my first generation touch.

    same problem with mine, held power and home button and it resurrected. So OK for now.

    Same thing happened to mine. I still haven't found a solution: tried everything that you've already said. Please, if anyone finds another solution tell me .

    The same happened to me and I only pushed the home and power buttons at same time for few seconds and it came back.

    This is quite unnerving as I am considering to purchase one. Have any of you folks had the problem resolved or addressed by Apple?
