Hopefully this a temporary thing.

I had the SL2 on today. I turned it off. I went to turn it back on, and it wouldn't turn on.

Thinking the battery was dead (a slim chance of that happening), I plugged it into the wall charger. The blue light came on.

A few hours later, I tried to turn it back on. No dice.


I'm forbidden to take it into work, so I keep it in the car. In cold temperatures, obviously. However, it had no such power problem to this date.

Heh.

It magically fixed itself. I held down the power button for what seemed like five seconds too long, and voila! Power! :)

How cold? Here we've been subzero, and my SL2 gets a little wonky, like sluggish screens, when I leave it plugged into the truck. I don't think they hold up to extreme temps very well.

where do you work, the iPod factory?

Ha!

Various contracts that were written by people more important than I forbid the use of radios, iPods, etc while on the job. I -think- that extends to taking them in, as I never see anyone with one. I don't really want to find out, either.

It's been close to 0, but closer to 30 or 40 within the past day or so. No problems with it today.


Yeah, it probably does need a device recovery, but I don't want to lose my saved programming. I've lost too much saved stuff.

Do you work for the CIA?
