    Remove the jailbreak, see if the problem goes away.

    It is best if you visit an Apple Genius Bar for a replacement unit as this is a commonly reported problem among iPod Touches and iPhones.

    An appointment can be booked on there website at this link: http://www.apple.com/retail/geniusbar/

    Alternatively you can call their world-wide customer support number which is 1-300-321-456.

    If you're jailbroken, you can install activator from Cydia and set up another action to work as your home button.

    When my sleep/wake button broke, I used to use activator to double-tap the status bar on my iPod to lock the screen.
