Plugged in IpodTouch this morning at work and all of a sudden the thing goes nuts -- beeping away madly with the icon showing that it's getting power going on and off, over and over. Reading that there may be some power issues in our building (and why our cafe is not running today) . Could that be it? Or has my power cord gone bad? 

iPod touch, Windows 7, Win7 64 bit, iPodTouch 5G

    Could be.. Some 5G iPods were shipped with Lightning cable that either did not work initially or failed after a short use.

    Try another cable/make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store. The cable is also covered by the warranty
