I have been having trouble with the use of my iPod Touch.
When I go to turn it off, the voice command screen comes up.

Normally, to shut down an iPod touch:
I suspect you may be holding down the Home button, which invokes the Voice Command.
From Apple Support:
How to restart
- Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.
- Drag the slider to turn your device completely off.
- After the device turns off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button again until you see the Apple logo.
You can download manuals for iPod touch.
To turn the device off hold to "Power" button (Top of the device) until a slide to power off screen appears - Press it and slide your finger across the screen.
If this fails, try holding down the 'Home' button with the 'Power' button for 10 seconds, the device should be off now.
If not; Try this: Go to the Settings app, General, Tap Accessibility Then click AssistiveTouch (Near the bottom) Now there should be a small black square that you can drag around your screen, Tap it, Tap Device then hold the Lock icon until prompted "Slide to power off"
