Have you tried plugging it into the computer and then holding home and power? If not try this: hold gome and power button for ten seconds or so. then release the power button, and keep holding home. it might take a while but eventually there should be a white screen for a second and it'll load in itunes

 sometimes they just randomly freeze, it happened to mine so i left it overnight and it was working in the morning. I have heard that they can take longer or shorter times.

 Sometimes they are so drained of battery that you need to charge them for a good ten minutes before they should automatically turn on (if in a computer). If you found it then you don't know what broke it. By the way, were do you live cos I have just lost an iPod touch (no joke) although I live in the UK

For that matter, if you found it, it may well be a marketing mock-up, not intended to function.

Good luck.

Try going through this troubleshooting doc on the "5 Rs" of iPod Troubleshooting: http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/five_rs/

I know of more than one person that have saved their iPods using this.

Try plugging it into the usb port of the computer.
If the computer recognizes it, AT ALL, and there screen is still blank and dark then that means either the screen is loose with a wire or it is broken.
hoqever if nothing at all happens, then it is a problem with the board in the ipod touch or the battery, most likely the board though.

so depending on the results you can either repair you're ipod using www.rapidrepair.com or you can sell it on ebay, AS-IS for parts
