The dock is constantly connected to a powersuply so I can emagine that it maybe is not allowed to shut down because else the battery won't charge.
That's why. If the iPod and the dock are connected to a power supply, it will charge the iPod when you turn it off (and hence show the charging display).
But how can i turn of the display then?
Disconnect it from the power.
My (80Gig) ipod Classic's exactly the same (as well as my old 4th Gen). I think this is normal behaviour. And I don't think the hard drive spins while it's charging (unless you're doing something else like playing songs).
The backlight will turn off by itself according to your ipod's settings (Main Menu > Settings > Backlight).

Ok. I understand.
But don't i have to be afraid that the static displaying of the charged icon will ' burn in' in to the display?
Unlikely as LCD screens don't suffer from burn in. It's possible that something called "image persistence" may occur (like on LCD TV screens), but only if the image is left onscreen for a very long time. I've never seen it on an iPod.
