I had run into the same issue and i figured it out!!!!
It was the '''metal spudger'''[http://www.ifixit.com/Tools/Metal-Spudger-Set/IF145-017|metal spudger] tool I was using. I noticed that ever since i bought the set from here I had the same problem with the lock button not working but the volume still functioning. I had never once had that problem before, and i have done a lot of these. I did some experimenting with iPods that were under warranty still and used the tool more and more sparingly. I believe the exact issue came from when I was removing the copper tape that secures the digitizer ribbon. When I would repair the iPod not using that tool at all except to remove that tape I still had that issue. I believe it is the metal conductivity. Solution, use screwdriver with a rubber handle.
