my advice would be to back up your library and format the ipod.
(With iTunes up) plug in ipod and wait for it to connect. once its connected, click on your ipod on the left, on the bottom of itunes it should say something like (restore ipod) that's what you want, click that and leave it be and the ipod should be back to normal. if not then you would have to take it into an apple store. There, they can assist your further.
try the reset option
press Enter and Menu at the same time until you see the apple on the screen
if the battery are still low you should try to update the firmware with itunes. if the battery are ok you should be ok but if the problems happen again run a firmware upgrade with itunes
the switch may be gone but you can try this reset procedure first just to see, first turn on the lock and then turn it off again, next push the menu button and the center button down at the SAME TIME and hold them for at least 50 seconds, then see if it's better
first reset depending on your ipod then quickly useing the correct combination force it into disk mode (already having it plugged into the computer sometimes helps) then use itunes restore utility to fix it itunes will say your ipod needs to be restored and that should do it for you
and one other thing sometimes it is hard to get it to stay in disk mode so try putting it into diagnostic mode then pluging in the dock connector then selecting disk mode from the options
try to put the ipod into disk mode, while connected to PC, perform first hard reset by holding select and menu buttons until it restarts, when quickly change to pressing select and play buttons, then it must go into disk mode, will sync with PC and must show in iTunes, perform restore function to reformat the memory
