    My wife and I were listening to her iPhone 3GS (via Airplay to an Airport Express) when it suddenly turned off. I can't get it to turn back on, and it is getting progressively hotter. I tried calling Applecare and they were closed - what kind of tech support closes at 6PM PST!

    I live in a rural area; nearest apple store is too far for me to bother going. My question is, how can I make it stop getting hotter? Not sure I want to crack it open to remove the battery what with whatever is going on in there.

    Maybe 45 mins intermittently. No warning signs.
