Re: ipod won't turn off
You may want to try an earlier version of the firmware. You can actually download the older firmware for that one from Apple and in iTunes hold the shift key before you click restore. That will allow you to select the file of the firmware version you want instead of the newest version it defaults to. You won't have to reinstall an older version of iTunes that way. If it doesn't turn off when you pause it you can also press and hold the play pause button after it is paused to force a power down. I doubt that it us a battery issue and replacing it won't help. If you do decide to replace the battery you can get a battery from various web sites for 10-30 dollars that come with the opener tool and you can replace it yourself for cheap.

I had the same issue as reported above: I could not turn off the built in speaker even when the headphones were plugged in. What I did to correct his was to unplug the headphones from the unit, and then cycle power by holding down the menu and center buttons at the same time until the power shuts off. Once it loaded back up I plugged in the headphones and it worked properly. Hope this helps.
try resetting your ipod by sliding the "hold' thingy back and forth once, then pressing Menu and Select at the same time(it may take a few seconds, but then the Apple logo will show up, and it should be back to normal). I hope this helps!
I had an iPod nano that I accidentally put thru the laundry that occasionally would do the same thing after I had dried it out and recharged it. I speculated that mineral contamination from the water got into the case and messed up the control switches or their associated circuitry. I had a bit of luck tapping it face-down onto a padded but solid surface (some thin felt in my case, but about anything would work). That would sometimes make it stop. If it had gotten annoying enough and I hadn't lost it, I was going to try some more drastic measures like dipping it in some alcohol like is used for cleaning electronics (don't remember the type, but it doesn't leave a residue when it evaporates) just to see if it might get rid of whatever was going on inside the case. That would be pretty extreme and an act of desperation, since it runs the risk of ruining the iPod. Good luck.
