Check and see if you have activator installed this could do this. If you do, dont remove it just go to settings and change the function of double tapping the sleep button to none.
03-10-2010, 07:18 PM #3no luck :(
Activator is installed but double press isnt associated to anything in all different locations (Anytime, At home scr, In app and Lock scr)
I keep going thru all my settings but still cant find any other setup assigning double press to Sleep/Wake button...

Hmm try reinstalling activator may be a glitch, the only programs that use that feature that I can think of use activator.
03-10-2010, 07:34 PM #5Interesting... but not good i guess
After uninstalling Activator and ProSwitcher the Wake/Sleep button stopped responding...
Resinstalled both and still at the same problem... by double clicking on the button I get what I should get when usually single clicking... but nothing happens when I single click.

Well you can use quicklock (free on cydia) to lock it and just tap the home button to unlock it
03-10-2010, 07:39 PM #7ill keep looking for a solution...
Double clicking still does the trick but its annoying.

Hmmm, another idea put it in safe mode see if it still does it
03-10-2010, 08:19 PM #9Same thing
In safe mode it acts the same as when I uninstalled Activator and Proswitcher... Wake/Sleep button only responds to "long hold" for shuting down the iPod. Single click, double click, multiple frustrated clicks do nothing.

Than it may be that your sleep button is just starting to wear down and this has nothing to do with software, I would use quick lock for now more conveinent
03-11-2010, 01:50 PM #11'Has to be software
With the number of times I've tried single and double clicking I am certain that its software related as wear wouldn't be selective on the number of clicks... When i click repeatedly it does sleep/wake every two clicks up to a delay of approximatively 1 sec beetween clicks. Slower than that it stops reacting to the double click.
Its software. When I connect thru Veency it requires the same double clicking. There has to be someone who knows how to reset it back to single click! Ill keep looking.
Well I went with the drastic measure. Full reinstall of my iPod.
It allowed me to test the procedure to reinstall 3.1.2 and see if PkgBackup did its job.
100% for reinstalling 3.1.2 - Went really fast
90% for PkgBkup - Had to resintall manually a couple of packages and tweak tome setups I had made.
By the way, my sleep/wake button is back to normal.
Thanks for the help.
