    Holding home and sleep for 15 seconds gets you a hard reset which is extremely bad for your ipod touch/iphone/ipad, it deletes caches and has to stop processes running randomly which you are executing the reset.

     Sure, do you want stock or jailbroken?

    I mean... how else do you turn off your touch?  You hold the button on top for a few seconds till you get the shut down slider.  I didnt know turning off your ipod when you are not using it is a trick.
