Ipod Touch Not Turning On

Well this morning I went to turn on my ipod touch (as you do) and to my surprise nothing happened! I tried all 2 buttons, holding them down, and together etc. I knew the battery wasn't flat or anything. So I plugged it into itunes, and kept trying to turn it on. About 2 minutes later it finally booted up (to my enormous relief) and worked perfectly.
Then later in the day after not using it for a few hours, I tried to wake it from sleep, but it did the same thing and wouldn't turn back on.
It has since done it yet again after turning it off myself, and not turning back on.
I could try reseting it all and wiping it and starting it again to try and sort it out, but I just wanted to know if anyone else has had the same problem?

Please reply with any ideas

Well today it as though it is back to normal. It's turning on fine after being off and from sleeping.
I can't figure out why it was doing that the day before. It has left me puzzled.
The only things that were different is I put it into a new case and the weather has been slightly hotter than normal (as it's summer in New Zealand) But I would hardly think either of those would have had any impact on it.

If it plays up again I will keep you posted.

Im aware of weather conditions causing issues with cellfones which can cause moisture to occur inside, so it could be what you describe !

Well it has started playing up yet again after going a full day without any problems. I guess I will try reseting it and see how it goes from there.

okay well i have the EXACT same problem. My ipod touch 2G is only 2 weeks old and today when i went to turn it on from sleeping it didnt respond.. i thought oh maybe it died. so i plugged it in my computer and it has half full battery!!! i am pissed off. i dont want to get a new one as i have a one use skin on it which was pretty expensive.
now its plugged in and it went to sleep.. it wont even turn on now!! im am freaking out!

HELP i could restore but thats a pain as i just jailbroke it.. could this have anything to do with it?

EDIT:well atfer like 10 TIMES of trying to reset it it worked... if it happens again im coming back here to see if anything has been said.. ive searched on google and this seems to be a common fault with touchs.... wtf.. stupid apple i thought 2G was meant to be all fixed up and what not

Wow...I've heard of a lot of people having this same issue with their 2nd gens..I'm glad I never got one...Bring it to the Apple store and they can run tests on it and tell you the good or bad news...thats my only suggestion.

Smile Solution!

I have an iPod touch 2nd generation, and it had the exact same problem! The way I've fixed it is if you plug it into your computer (i dont know if this part is neccessary or not) and hold down the home and on/off button for a while, until it turns on. To avoid it, every time you set it down for more than 5 or so minutes, turn it off instead of letting it sleep.

Thanks for the advice

This problem happened to my 8-year old son. After saving allowances, birthday money, Christmas cash gifts, etc. for a year... He finally had enough to buy an iTouch. Today he set it down to come help me with something and when he went back to turn it on, it was blank and wouldn't respond. He thought it was dead and you can imagine how sad he was. So I helped him find all the posts here and we followed the advice. Plugged it in to the PC with his itunes, he held down both buttons and we together counted down from 10. Exactly on 0, the little apple logo showed up! So happy. Thanks to everyone who took their time to share this. Best Wishes.
