    Does anyone know the cause of this? I have my ipod synced with iTunes 7.6.1 and with the latest iPod software as well. It's a 30 GB Video. If I don't use it for a few hours (this happens most often when I first turn it on in the morning) It restarts with the black apple screen then goes into the actually functionality of the iPod. It has been happening since I bought it and I have even received a replacement for it from AppleCare. Maybe its a file I'm syncing to it? Thanks for any and all help!

    How long is "a few hours"? A normal iPod will go into a "hibernation" mode after an extended period of time to conserve battery. This seems normal to me. About how long does it take for the iPod to go to the black screen?

    It only restarts to a black screen after it is turned off. For example I turn it off for a while, such as when I go to bed and then when I turn it on in the morning, it doesn't just go to the menu, it shows the black apple screen first then switches to the menu after 15 or so seconds. It's very annoying.

    Mine does that too. I think it's supposed to do that.

    I'm not to sure, a few buddies of mine have the same iPod and they have all said they've never experienced this... Maybe you and I have bad iPods?
