    Hi guys,
    i'm having a small problem at the moment.
    Normally when i hold down the pause button on my ipod photo it would go to sleep after 2-3 seconds. I cant get it to do it anymore though. Pause still works fine, it just wont go to sleep.

    Any ideas?

    1 - Do a reset. Hold down menu and centre buttons, see if you can turn it off after this.
    2 - Do an update of the software on the ipod (www.apple.com/ipod/download)
    3 - If it is still failing after this, RESTORE the software, this will wipe anything on the ipod (Basically a format + reinstall)
    4 - If it's still failing, send it in via Web Self Service.

    yeh i had the same probelm as soon as i opened mine, the computer asked me to insert it into the USB, did so then it said disconnect :confused: did that azs well. I had put it on hold before i did this (no idea why i did that) then i couldn't do anything. realised about 10 minutes later after being totally bummed out that it was on hold, so i turned it off hold, but it didn't go off. WTF! so my pro brother came along and showed me how to do the reset :) works like a charm now
