Buttons unresponsive on iPod 5

Buttons unresponsive on iPod 5

Sometimes during a game/app (most noticeably Asphalt 7), on my iPod 5 the buttons temporarily become unresponsive and I can't press them for a few seconds. Does this happen to anyone else?

Sounds like a software problem (this always happens only when you're in an app, right?). Did you try to restore the device?

maybe the delay from logging into game center?

Usually whenever my iDevices stop functioning just right while playing a game, I will just lock the screen, and then when I unlock it's back to normal.

But it also could be a software problem. Just my suggestion on what I do.

Thanks guys. I haven't tried restoring my device yet since I want to use that as an absolute last resort, and I don't think its the delay of logging into Gamecenter because it happens a while after opening the app. I did try locking the screen, but this was only a temporary fix (as much as I noticed). I may have to restore it, because the buttons have been freezing too frequently for me to tolerate.
