I'm all fixed up now but wanted to share with you what went on..

Had this Touch for a while .. guess I use it too much, but for a while it was getting difficult to use the top button to put it to sleep and wake it up home button worked fine to wake it up ... but after a while the top button just stopped working all together.

Did not know if it was still under warranty or what they would tell me .. (was a gift)

Mac Genius .. exchanged it for me .. no questions asked.. Now that is service

I was prepared to crack it open my self if I had to to see if I could fix it but could not find any fixes out there on the web or here in the Forums.

Apple service is great .. (at least in this instance)

Heres a Link to the CE's Geekbook: A Look Back "I hate iTunes / iPod!" rest of the story if your intrested.

Wow, that is great service.

I did a hard reset on my 1st gen (same problem). I pressed the Home button for 10 secs and both buttons for 10 sec and it turned on again. Works perfectly now.

17" MacBook Pro, OSX 10.6.2 Snow Leopard
