Ok, after I have tried what I think is everything I can do to get the ipod to tun off, what else can I do? Am I forced to own an ipod that won't shut off or is there anything AT ALL I can do? I addressed this issue a while back- to ask how to turn it off. But there was no resolution to the problem. So all I want to know now is can I send it back for repair or am I compelled to toss it and buy another?
