Question about Apple iPod touch
My ipod touch works normally until it is put on standby, as soon as this is done the ipod cannot cannot become available again no matter what button is pressed. the only way to take it of standby is to connect it to a power source, this automatically takes the ipod off standby ....help
Hold the sleep button (top) and the home button (bottom) until the apple logo appears then let go and let it reboot.
If that doesn't fix your problem you may need to restore. To restore, hold down the sleep button (top) and the home button until the apple logo appears. As soon as it appears let go of the sleep button but keep the home button held.
After a few seconds a (plug into iTunes) message should appear. Do this now. iTunes will say your iPod needs to be restored, click the restore button now.
iTunes will then download the newest firmware for your iPod and perform a system recovery. This will wipe out everything on your iPod but don't worry, to re obtain everything just sync it with iTunes when the restore is done.
That should fix your problem, however. If it doesn't I am afraid to say that you will have to have it repaired by apple.
NOTE: If your iPod is jailbroken this will un-jailbreak it. You will have to reinstall everything after re-jailbreaking. I'm sorry for the incovenience.

Restarting and Resetting iPod touch
If something isn't working right, restarting, force quitting an application, or resetting iPod touch will likely solve the problem.
Restart iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.
Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPod touch. To turn iPod touch back on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.
If you can't turn off iPod touch or if the problem continues, you may need to reset. A
reset should be done only if turning iPod touch off and on doesn't resolve the problem.
Force quit an application: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch
for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then press and hold the Home button
until the application quits.
Reset iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the
same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
