    Hey guys, I have an older iPod touch 8gb. When I'm doing stuff on it lately, it will randomly go to the "slide to power off" screen. I updated the OS, but to no avail. Any suggestions? Thanks, Shawn

    Sounds like a stuck power button to me. Have you tried "exercising" it a bit?

    No, the power button doesn't feel stuck. The apps work; that screen will just randomly pop up while your doing stuff on it.

    Could be a software issue, but as it still happens following a firmware upgrade I would agree with Psylichon, sounds like a hardware issue to me!
