My ipod nano is locked even though the hold switch isn't on. It wont do anything, no matter what button I press. The screen stays lit up all day. I plugged it into my computer and went on itunes and the little bar on the left side with the picture of the ipod on it didn't come up so I cant sync music or anything. Its completely frozen.

Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps!
Try pushing down and holding for at least 5 seconds the Menu button and the center Select button, at the same time. This should force your iPod to restart and it should eventually again be discovered in iTunes. Using the Restore option aftwerwards in iTunes is adviceable, at least make sure your iPod has the last version of its software. Good luck!
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the
Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your
iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the
Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make
sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the
click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power
adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or
connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and
isn't set to go to sleep.

Set the Hold switch to Hold and turn it off again. Press the Menu
and Center buttons at the same time for about 6 seconds, until the
Apple logo appears.
First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides
back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the
left, here's how you reset:
You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round
button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see
an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will
shut off, then back on.
Make sure that your iPod’s hold button isn’t on. (little switch at the top left corner of the iPod). If this is on, you’ll see a little orange area at the top of the iPod nano and a lock icon on the iPod screen. If you see either of these, move the switch back and see if this fixes the problem. If that doesn't fix it:
Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart it. You’ll know it's restarting when the Apple logo appears on-screen.
