It is possible the the button is just stuck or crooked in the cradle it sits in.
when you look at the ipod is the square on the button turned at all if so push it with your finger and turn to straighten it. it has 2 channels it is supposed to line up with.
also maybe it is dirty and stuck down. try clean around the edge with a qtip with alcohol but not so much that it is wet.
If this doesn't help you may have to have a tech open it and see why the button is not responding.

Why does my iPod keeps turning itself on when I lock it?

iPods have no traditional on/ff switch. They power up with the slightest touch, which makes turning the iPod on as simple as touching the menu. Turning the iPod off, however, can be more tricky. Waiting for automatic shut off wastes battery life, and surfing the menus yields no way to stop the device from running. Turning off the iPod Nano, though, is almost as simple as turning it on.

Locate the "hold" or "lock" switch at the top of your iPod Nano. It will be located on the top of your device on the left side. Make sure the device is unlocked. When the device is locked, an orange bar is visible. When it is unlocked, that bar is not visible. The iPod needs to be unlocked in order to power off. Locate the "play/pause" buttons. These are located at the bottom of the control wheel. Press at the "play/pause" section of the wheel and hold for a few seconds. Your iPod will power off. Do not touch the wheel again after powering off, as this will power the device back on. Locate the "hold" or "lock" switch again. Slide the bar to the locked position so that the orange bar is visible. This will prevent your iPod from powering on in your purse or pocket and wasting battery time.

My Ipod Touch lags on start up/loading playlists and freezes sometimes

font.f1 { font: 12px Helvetica; } Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

The simplest approach to resolving an issue like this with your iPod Touch is to perform a reset, which in essence "reboots" your iPhone and can improve its performance. Not to worry, a hard reset process does not endanger any of your playlists, videos, podcasts, etc., which you may have on your iPod Touch.

All you need to do is press the Sleep button, located at the top of your iPod Touch and then the Home button located at the bottom center-most location of your iPod.

Hold both buttons down at the same time for approximately 10 seconds. Within that time you should see an Apple icon appear as your iPod Touch attempts to reboot. Allow it to go back to your main screen. Now attempt to use the device as you normally would and see if it improves.

I would also recommend you connect your iPod Touch to your computer and check in iTunes- if I am not mistaken, there is a new iOS 4.3 update just released from Apple, that you can run, if you have not done so already. It is always good to keep your iPod Touch up to date with the software updates, as those updates can resolve the bugs of the previous iOS version.

This should help, but please feel free to let me know if it does not. Always glad to assist!

the button on your touch could be stuck down. hold you touch in front of you and look at the square on the button. if the square is off, push the button and attempt to turn the button and get it back into it's groove. it has 2 ears on the sides that are supposed to be in a indentation.
if you can't get it that way it may need to be disassembled and fixed.
