If you find yourself in an iPhone or iPod touch lockup situation where you can't get your device to respond to the commands for force quitting an application or for restarting the phone, we covered both those methods in previous movies, the next step is to try forcing the device to reboot. To do so hold down both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously. Now even when the screen goes blank it's important to keep holding down the buttons. Only when you see the Apple logo appear you'll know the device has successfully rebooted and then you can release the buttons.
You can also try this fix if your iPhone or iPod touch is off but won't turn back on. Of course first plug it into a charger to make sure the battery isn't just depleted, but once you're plugged in, hold down the Sleep/Wake button and Home button together to see if your device will reboot.
