How do I adjust the length of time the ipod nano 7th generation backlight stays on? How do I prevent it from staying on while it charges?

    You could try pressing the standby button on top, it should work while charging.

    After it has synched, that is. While synching you can't put your iPod in standby.

    That's odd. Do you have the latest version of iTunes?

    What happens with me (latest version of both iTunes, iPod nano 7th gen, Windows 7) is as following:


    1) plug in iPod, open iTunes

    2) iPod shows:connected: eject before disconnecting

    3) iPod shows: synchronizing do not disconnect (turning arrow)

    4) iPod shows: OK to disconnect (turning wheel) (only 1-2 seconds)

    5) iPod shows homescreen with charging battery icon and if I press standby it will go standby.


    So where does it go different for you? After synchronizing it shows the screen that mine shows before? Maybe the synchronization hasn't started properly yet and you have to wait a little while longer, this can be caused if there is still a lot of music that you wanted to put on the iPod but it hasn't got time to do it yet so that's what makes the synchronization take a little longer.

    I'm happy you found a way to solve it!
