    Ever since I got my nano for christmas I've been having to reset it at least five times a week and I was wondering if this is normal? It's really annoying and would like to fix it but if it's normal then I'll just live with it.

    Hmm, have you tried resetting the iPod?

    But seriously, this is not normal and you might want to try restoring the software using the iPod updater. This will erase everything on the iPod, however. What in particular where you doing when it freezes?

    If you leave your iPod in standby mode (off) for a while it will go into what is called a deep sleep mode, and it will have to boot up the next time you turn it on instead of just coming up right away. It does this to conserve battery life.
    When this happens, you should just be able to push the center button and you will se the Apple logo Let us know if that works.

    I'm not sure what the exact time delay is but if you leave it for a day then it will definitely go into deep sleep mode.
