    Hello, got a brand-new iBook G4 running the latest iTunes version. I've noticed that sometimes after I quit the app it will start up again on its own. I assume it's some kind of software bug that will be worked out. Has this happened to anybody else?

    I have the exact same problem on my PC. In fact, in addition to this, I've been getting some errors in my system logs, and they seem to be itunes related

    Only the stock iTunes controller widget. Will that start the app when I bring it up? I didn't think of that. I'll probably disable it now because this is getting on my nerves.

    I experienced this before and I am pretty sure I didn't have any iTunes related widget running.
    It's been a while since then so I really don't remember exactly but I think the problem always occured when I was doing a particular thing, or running a certain application.
    Sorry that I cannot be of any more help.

    There was some trouble with the iTunes widget at first, but after the 10.4.3 update, everything seemed to be fixed. Make sure your ipods cable isnt being bumped and connecting and unconnecting.

    It look slike it must be a bug. Actually, it may be a major bug. Because as soon as this started happening, my computer started slowing down a lot.

    So I reformatted, and my PC was ok. But then this iTunes thing started happening again (it keeps restarting itself after i exit), and my computer is being slow again :(

    How can I report a bug to Apple anyway?

    its been happening to me too. i'll drag my iPod to the trash, and then iTunes will open (randomly) and re-sync my iPodl. i've found that by right-clicking (ctrl-click) my ipod (on the desktop, with itunes closed) and choosing eject will solve it...so far. maybe a corrupted preferences file? MainMenu (
    http://www.santasw.com/products.html) can reset those....

    btw, i'm running the latest version of iTunes, os x 10.4.3, and a 5G ipod with the newest soft/firmware update.

    It has been doing this even without the iPod connected. However it hasn't done it since I disabled the iTunes widget, so that was probably the problem.

    Used to happen to me. I had limewire open at the time, closing it solved the problem.
