iPod Photo 60gb won't wake up after being forced to sleep by holding play (hardware) button

Message #1 - Posted 2005/07/07 - SlurpTheo

I just upgraded my iPod with the 2005-06-26 (4.2). I was listening to some podcasts and assumed they were causing this... but I don't think that's true. If I let my iPod fall asleep (leave it in paused for a few minutes) it wakes right up with a click of a button... BUT, when I click and hold the play button to put it to sleep (functionality I love(ed) along with click and hold the menu button to force on/off the backlight)... it will not wake up until I reset the iPod (hold both the menu and the back/middle buttons for like 6-ish seconds).

Anyone just start seeing this with this most recent iPod Updater?

All right... I just had the "no wake up" happen when I let the device fall asleep by itself too. BUT, it was happening EVERY time when I forced it to sleep with the Play hardware button and this was the first occurance in probably 12 times in the past 24 hours when I just let it time out.

No problem doing this after the latest iPod updater on my 4G 20GB iPod...

Yikes! Now I'm getting reboots of my iPod just from selecting some podcasts - it will just reboot.

I just experienced the same thing with a 60GB ipod. Thanks for your post, otherwise I never would have known how to reboot. Definitely a bug.

Same subject as an older post...

I think I've noticed less "automatic resetting" of the iPod when I have shuffle and repeat off... weirdness I know but just thought I'd share.

DEFINITELY turning off 'repeat' functionality stops the "resetting" functionality of my 60GB photo iPod when dealing with podcasts.

No repeaty == no (less) crashy
