I got a iPod nano 4th gen as a Christmas gift 6-7 years ago and I think it's going out on me, but want to get another's opinion on this. It started back in September of this year that I noticed this happening. Normally, when I've got music playing, the screen goes blank after 30 seconds, but the music keeps on playing like normal (unless of course, I turn the iPod off), but now, it's acting like I've actually turned the iPod off, even though I haven't. When it first happened, I thought it was something in my purse that turned it off, so I took it out, stood still, and turned it back on. The music started up again and 30 seconds later, it did it again. I switched the settings so that the screen stays on when music is playing, but it's such a drain on my iPod's battery. Now, since I first got my iPod, it's been synced to three different computers, the first two being a Dell laptop and PC in that order, and the last being a MacBook Pro laptop. In fact, I got the Mac laptop at Easter of this year, before the iPod started acting up. Its OS is Mac OS X version 10.5.8, so I hope that helps...


Anyway, thanks so much in advance!!
