Turning off an iPod can be accomplished in three steps. An iPod can be turned off to save battery power or to restart the device.
- Locate the sleep/wake button
The button on the top of your iPod is the sleep/wake button. It is used to put your device into sleep mode, turn it off and restart it.
- Hold down sleep/wake button
Press the sleep/wake button down firmly and hold until the message "slide to power off" appears on the iPod's screen.
- Swipe to power off
Using your finger, swipe the "slide to power off" slider to the right until the screen dims and the iPod is turned off.
