iPod stuck on the 'do not disconnect' screen

I am a PC user but I am convinced that my next buy should be a Macbook. One of the advantages is that it does not get frozen or take too long to load the operating system, I do not have a ipod but my daughter does and she has this issue where it gets stuck at the 'Do not Disconnect screen" a lot and she patiently just goes about her work till sometimes the next morning.

Today luckily I was home and when she told me this problem it did not sound right. The first thing I tried to do was reboot ( Oops ! thats a windows thing) and the Ipod does not have a way for you to remove the battery. Ouch !

Anyway my friend Google came to the rescue and doing this worked:

You should toggle the hold button from open to hold and back (like I said above), then hold the enter (middle) and the menu "button" in for 4 or 5 seconds... (The screen should go blank for a little while, than show the Apple logo for a while, then come up again with your default menu).

This wonderful piece of advice is from http://forums.macrumors.com/archive/index.php/t-128133.html Thank you Mitthrawnuruodo.

From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night.
I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flight, I divide …
