So I just on twitter and all the sudden the screen freezes. I try to get it to the home screen but that didn't work. I tried to turn it completely off and it brought up the option to turn off or cancel and then I couldn't do anything. It doesn't even go into sleep.

I think I need to restart it but I am not sure how. I can't find the instruction booklet so yeah.

Please, and thanks!

You have to press and hold both buttons for about 10 seconds. He's right on that. How is it bad for your ipod? (it's not)

I'm sorry but...that just makes no sense. Why would Apple deliberately put in a function that will damage their devices if it's used? All it does is reset the software, which cannot damage the iPod in any way. The only thing that would hurt the iPod is if it inflicted some sort of hardware damage upon it, which it clearly doesn't.

I'm sure your friend had a mere misunderstanding. Anyhow, he may be under the impression that it may damage since force shutting down your computer is harmful to your computer if any major application is running.
