iPods sometimes have a mind of their own when turning off. What usually fixes it is to move to another menu and then try to turn off. Or switch the lock on and off and then try it. Or do both. One of these things usually works.
i simply want tu turn off my ipod nano but it wont when i press the play/pause bottom for a few seconds it goes to stanby mode and it dont turn off and is strange because a few days ago it shuted down ok so i dont know what to do also the baterry is decreasing very quicly i use it 45 minutes and the baterry decrease a leatle i think that is because the ipod es all the time in stanby and not shut down. HELP THIS POOR GUIRL PLEASE.
