    It is a silly question, especially since the question has been asked and answered a couple of dozen times. The Apple website has online manuals for ALL products, including the 6th generation iPod Nano. It would behoove you to read it closely. I'm not going to give you a fish, but I've told you how to fish.

    Here, I'll give you a tuna: Press pause on the screen and then the sleep button on top and remove the headphones.

    put it on pause and it will not run down the battery

    the only way 2 turn it off is 2 leace it alone for 12 hrs........... it took me a while 2 figure it out

    Thats not true. I just spoke to a apple tech and there is a problem with shutting off the nano 6 gen. Just check the net for a forum with 144 complaints! They need to download a patch as soon as possible! Lots of people have returned theirs because of the issue. They need a on off switch. The unit will run even in sleep mode. I understand that it shuts off in 36 hours .... not the issue. This issue must be resolved!!!!!
  • deggie Level 8 Level 8 (48,625 points)
    The tech you spoke to does not know what they are talking about, and 144 complaints is a paltry number. If you press pause and then the sleep button it will stop and use minimal power. After about 12 hours it will go into deep sleep. It will NEVER be completely off, but then again this is true since the 3rd Generation Nano. If they put a patch out that completely turned it off you would have to reset the time & date every time you turned it back on. Then you would have a lot more than 144 complaints about that.

    I don't know if this helps or not. I read on the net recently that you can shut off the Nano by;
    pressing down the '-' volume button.
    then pressing down the 'sleep' button at the same time.
    using another finger, now press the '+'volume button.
    After about 3-5 seconds, a screen will come up with a list of functions.
    The first entry is 'Standby' and there should be an arrow next to it.
    Now hit the 'Sleep' button and it should do exactly that and save power, with no headphones plugged in either.

    Why in the world would any reasonable person go through all that?
  • ct3htsp Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Well, it's not as bad as it seems. Have you tried it?

    You can do it pretty fast and if it helps preserve battery power, why wouldn't you do it?
  • deggie Level 8 Level 8 (48,625 points)
    I wouldn't do it because I can press pause and the top sleep button and I am done. And I don't lose any significant battery life doing this.

    That really helps. Thank you. Now I'm going to see why I ipod is not charging =)
  • roadsterg Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    That does not work tried it.Thats a stupid way to have a nano shut off.
  • roadsterg Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    yes it does tried that 20 times.
  • deggie Level 8 Level 8 (48,625 points)
    While you were playing it you pressed pause, the music stopped, you pressed the sleep button on top and it drained the battery? I would also suggest you unplug the headphones, especially if they have lay controls (not a requirement). Also remember if it is connected to a computer and goes into sleep mode charging will cease and it can deplete the battery.
