This sounds what is likely happening. Until recently I kept my iPod in a
backpack w/ the hold switch on. It is very likely something could bump the
click wheel w/ enough force to wake the iPod up. At which point it would
load the Apple firmware then proceed to sit idle until it put itself to
sleep.
