How can I reboot my Touch when the screen is frozen and I cannot use the "slide to power off" feature?

    Do a reset as described in the basics section of the manual.


    Hole the power and home button until the Apple logo apperas ignoring the slide prompt

    Next try:

    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Restore from backup. See:                                 

    iOS: How to back up           

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

    If still problem, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.
