    Don't know when and how it happened, now I just can't turn off my Classic. No matter how long or how hard I press the power button, it will reboot instead of turn off.
    Anyone has similar experience?

    Sounds like you've somehow reprogrammed the button???

    Yes. Had this issue the other day. Hold down the up and down volume buttons at the same time. It will take a few for it to shut down. Then it should start up like normal when you hit the power button.

    Both volume buttons will take screenshots (a big number of them if held down), pressing the power (top) button and one of the volume buttons forces a reboot, that is the right way since there is no reset button.

    It takes one screenshot yes. You have to keep holding them down. It won't take multiple screenshots in a row.

    Also, if there is a next time, push and hold the 'end' key on the toolbelt.
    That will shut off the phone too.
