    Are you sure it is connected properly because if you detach and reattach the iPod, it will turn on. You could try another USB port and/or cable to see if the connection is just poor and thus the iPod thinks it has been reconnected.

    Don't you have to put it in DFU mode in stead of powering it off?

    Redsn0w requires powering it off before DFU. So does the OP mean s/he powered off the iPod, then connected it or connected it, and then turned it off?

    same problem here with IPOD 2G


    I have the same problem or something similar.
    Here are the steps

    1: Ipod 2G connected to computer (note using windows)
    2: Ipod switches on and charges
    3: disconnect Ipod from Computer when finished charging
    4: Can use it then no problem for as long as battery lasts
    5: switch off Ipod using On/off switch on Ipod

    Problem is I cannot switch it back on manually using On/off button.
    Have to plug it back in to to computer to get it working.

    Have restored it to factory settings and upgraded it to 4.2.1

    Any suggestions or advice please ?
