Currently Being ModeratedMay 31, 2006 7:20 AM (in response to David Kudrev)This happened to my 30GB model. It's not that it won't turn off (that's just the symptom) it's that the whole unit just freezes and you have to reset to get it going again.
I went through the 5R's, in fact restoring the iPod only made the problem worse.
In the end I had to return it to an Apple store and they swapped it for anew one with no exlanation of what the problem was.

hi, i had the same problem i restored the ipod and it works perfectly fine now
another solution if you dont want to loose your songs is going to settings --> main manu ----> sleep. then when you want to turn it off you go in the main manu to sleep and it turns offpentium 4, Windows XP
Currently Being ModeratedJun 3, 2006 12:45 PM (in response to HGFireHazard)Happened with my nano before, it just wouldn't turn off, no matter who tried or what I tried.
I restored the nano to factory settings and it was fine after that. Did you check to see you had the latest updates (iTunes/iPod updater)? Also you might want to becareful on how you're pressing the play/pause button because if you press it at a different angle, the button won't recognize what you're trying to do and not turn off.Dell Intel Pentium 4, Windows XP, 5G iPod 60GB
Currently Being ModeratedJun 6, 2006 7:40 AM (in response to Brad Garrett)iPod Video 30... Same problem since day 1, but found a work around without any re-install.
1. Stop all activity
2. Leave alone for ±5 minutes (yes that long!)
3. Press and hold the play/pause as usual
Pain in the neck, but it does do the trick

Try holding the MENU and SELECT (center) buttons
until you see the Apple logo to reset it. Then see
if it'll turn off.
I am glad someone knows how to solve this problem.I have had this problem with my Ipod several times and never knew what to do other than to let the battery die.Thanks.
