    Mine is sorta doing the same thing. I can unlock mine but it takes several minutes to get it to slide all the way to unlock. There are some spots that when i touch it it opens something around it. when i type it adds a bunch of letters.

My ipod touch will not slide open whatsoever. There is a lock on the screen, but I cant even slide to unlock it even if I wanted to! Which annoys me because the only button that works is the cancel button...

You most likely might have damaged it by dropping it or hitting it against something while not noticing. What you are telling me are signs of having broken the touch sensor (it happened to me before).
You have one of three choices:
  1. If you bought it less than a year ago, go to the Apple Store and they might replace it on the spot for free since I think its covered under their warranty
  2. Go to the Apple Store and have them fix it.
  3. Go to the Apple Store, give them your old iPod and buy a new one - they will give you a 10% discount.

My Ipod doesn't slide to unlock

Sounds like the digitizer for teh screen (the digitizer is what recognizes your finger touching the touch screen) needs to be replaced. It is a bit common with the iPhone and iPod Touch.

My Ipod touch 16G first generation. wont respond to my touch even to turn it off. its at the screen where it says slide to unlock and it wont respond to my touch.i havent dropped it and its in excellent...

1. Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.
2. Open iTunes and sync the iPod as normal.
3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.

IPod Touch, 1st gen, "slide to unlock" broken

If you jailbreak ( there is an app on cydia that will change it to tap to unlock rather than slide so it should be more sensitive.
