    strange but true? can't I turn this nano6th gen completely off? too bad
  • Kujain Level 1 (0 points)
    Yes, its a disappointment that it cannot be turned off completely. I have had mine for over a month and I charged it maybe 1-3 times a week. This is because am smart and I turned it off completely by doing this, it can be real annoying but it be off.

    Hold the Sleep/Wake button, then press the Volume down button.
    Keep holding the others and Quickly press the Volume up button.
    This will bring up a screen with yellow words and the word "Standby".
    Press the Sleep/Wake button and the nano will turn off.

    I have done this for quite some time, i will keep doing it until a firmware is available. It not as annoying to do anymore, the ipod will actually stay shutdown even if it plug in, it will charge but it best to turn it on for best charge.This helps me charge my ipod 1-2 mostly in a week. For me i haven't charge it in a good week. I listen to my ipod nano at least 5-10 hours a day, mostly at night or in a car. Hope this can be for some help, this will said by someone else, it has been highly useful to save battery life.

    same here very cool ipod but the battery life ruins it Im running few tests to be sure but this ipod is being returned if my theory is not correct... from what ive seen here it doesn't look good. Seriously I have a 2 gen that I dont have to charge for days.

    Well I just bought a new Nano today, so am going to experiment with it a little.

    "Point to ponder", When I bought it at Best Buy, they have them locked up in a cage. Am sure they been sitting there for a while and when i turn my on it said full battery, it dropped off soon in the first 20 minutes.
    But why would it sit on the self for days and not need re-charing.

    Just a thought.

    My son won a 6th gen nano recently and has been swearing that after complete charges, the nano is dead. Combined with some charging issues we're trying to diagnose around old ipod USB cords vs new ipod USB cords and old and 3rd party wall USB adapters and old charging ipod/iphone base station charging ... the Magnum PI is growing tiresome. This constant battery drain issue has the potential to be a deal breaker.

    Well with minor playing(about 1/2 hour total) Like I said above Nano had a full charge showing on battery scale then dropped off atfer the first 20 minutes. Then after a 3 hour initial charge after it fell off full charge .Unplugged it for the night and Awoke with full charge.
    I just played FM and loaded and played some songs.

    If you have a USB connection at one end (that goes into the nano) and a USB connector at the other, you should be good as far as cable is concerned.

    You CANNOT charge with the old firewire power bricks. Follow this link to see what a firewire plug looks like: 1548199-blown-firewire-firewireportiso.jpg

    The only point of the image is to see what the plug looks like.

    So once you have your cable thing worked out, just keep in mind that if you are connected to a computer, connect directly to the computer - no USB hub. Some USB hubs do not deliver the juice to fully charge the ipod. Also keep in mind that if you have power saving stuff turned on for your computer, it may be turning down the power to your USB ports when it goes into power save mode - which will not charge the ipod. If you are charging off of a power brick, just make sure it is a USB brick. When you connect the nano, it should light up and you should see the lightening bolt inside the battery icon to indicate it is charging.

    If you are using the factory settings on the nano and not turning on EQ or other features, you should get about 24 hours of playback time. I use it for podcasts and music in the car and when exercising. That comes down to about 3 hours a day and I only charge on the weekends. I still have charge left come the weekend.

    i think i found a way to turn it off completely. although its not the "legitimate" way to do it. you hold (+ - and the sleep/wake button) at the same time for about 5 to 10 seconds. you keep holding them after the apple logo shows up for about 3 more seconds. this takes you to the diagnostics screen. after that, select "standby" by pressing the sleep/wake button. that seems to turn off the iPod completely. to turn it back on, simply press the sleep/wake button. hope this helps people.

    I offer the following:
    1. to a 30 contact socket to fasten a choke with 4 buttons: "Previous", "Pause / To play", "Following" and to "Include / To disconnect a display". 3,5 to the socket it must not mix.
    2. In software to bring in the followings changes: Time of passing to the asleep mode is influenced an user in itunes
    3. During connecting of choke, to transfer control on it

    30 is closed contact port
    Is buttons of management
    Long time of work
    the Comfortable interface
    High service

    I absolutely love the new Nano, but I'm sending it back. I received it on Monday, used it for 30 minutes on Tuesday, attempted to use it today (Wednesday) and the battery was COMPLETELY dead! Had I known this before I spent $150, I would not have bothered...this is my fourth iPod and the only one I've been annoyed by. Apple needs to fix this problem ASAP!

    Sorry all, need to get our collective heads out of the sand. The 6th edition will stay on 24/7 for up to 36 hours - read the manual online. I just packed mine up IT'S GOING BACK TO COSTCO!!!

    Someone, anyone at technical support, Please fix this problem with the new beautiful Nano not being able to turn off. Can this be fixed with a software update?
    I go to the gym everyday and keep my Nano in my gym-bag, but everytime I want to use it, it's drained of power. Often I have to use my iPhone4 instead, and it's not gym friendly like the Nano. I don't want to return this, but this seems ridiculous that we all bought it because of it's small size and often to use running or the gym, only to find, we have to charge it in advance every **** day!
    How dumb and user UN-friendly is that Steve Jobs?
  • deggie Level 9 (52,647 points)
    I've used mine at the gym and have not had to charge it every day. After I am done I hit pause, uplug the headphones and push the sleep button. Sometimes if I don't use it for a long while it has to reboot when I turn it on but the charge has never been depleted.

    iPods have not been completely off since the click wheel came out, they still lose a small charge even if you hold down the play/pause button.

    If the iPod turned off completely, the clock would not work properly.
