Figured it out all you have to do is the same as you did to mess it up. HOLD the sleep button for 2 seconds. Then, you press the home button for 10 seconds. After, that the screen should go black. Then, your done and you can start the iPod up like normal.

Have you tried just hitting "Restore" in iTunes?

hitting restore does not work it claims that the ipod is no there and gives you a bunch of error messages

Did restarting make any difference?

I tried it, got the same errors, and I got out of it, I just don't remember how...but it wasn't difficult. Try iREB on it, then restore.

Just keep holding the home and sleep button for about 10 seconds, it will shut down, if u start it up again u can acess it.

hold power button until screen goes blank. then hold power and home buttons for 15 secs, then let go of power,but keep holding home till itunes recognizes your phone. (be sure to have ituens open)
