How To Turn Off Ipod Touch

Learning how to turn off an iPod Touch is a simple and easy process.  If you've purchased an iPod Touch and don't know how to turn off the device, you can follow these simple steps.  You can also learn about standby mode, which may be easier in certain situations, as an alternative to turning off the iPod Touch.

To turn off the iPod Touch, you will need:

  • iPod Touch (any generation)
  1. Hold the power button to turn off the iPod Touch.  At the top of the unit, slightly off center and to the right, you will find the power button. Hold this button to turn off the iPod Touch. Note that this is exactly what you will do to turn the device back on. When you turn the iPod Touch off and then on again immediately, it is known as resetting the iPod Touch: this is a useful solution when something is not working properly.
  2. Touch the power button to enter standby mode for the iPod Touch. If you will be using your iPod soon, turning off and on your iPod Touch may be too time-consuming. Simply press the power button to enter standby mode, which saves power and continues to keep track of email and other apps. Alternatively, your iPod Touch will automatically enter standby mode after a period of time. The default is three minutes, which can be altered or eliminated via the "Settings" function on the iPod Touch. Keep these processes in mind if you don't need a full power off from your iPod Touch.
