IPod 4G does not resume properly (loses its place) after sleeping
When I pause my 4GB iPod 4G mid-podcast and let it go to sleep, when it wakes up, I can't resume where I paused it. Although the display shows the proper podcast name and time code, when I hit the pause button to get it to play, there's a long delay of up to ten seconds or so, then the player starts playing the next item in the playlist from the beginning. I always have to go back in the playlist to get the correct item and fast forward thru it to get to where it was before. This problem only occurs when the iPod has gone completely to sleep.
Is this a known problem, or am I the only one having it? Seems like something that would have had a firmware fix issued if it were common.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The iPod Nano digital media player, like any electronic device, can freeze and quit working properly. When this happens, reset the device to restore functionality and unfreeze the device. Performing this reset process allows you to continue using your iPod Nano device without losing any of your digital media content.
Press and hold the "Sleep / Wake" button on your iPod Nano. Press and hold the "Volume Down" button while continuing to hold the "Sleep / Wake" button. Wait approximately eight seconds for the Apple logo to appear on your iPod Nano's display. You have now unfrozen and reset your iPod Nano.
To restart iPod touch, first turn iPod touch off by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until a red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider and iPod touch will turn off after a few moments.
Next, turn iPod touch on by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
Is iPod touch not responding? To reset iPod touch, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If your device does not turn on or displays a red battery icon, try recharging next.
Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player-the computer immediately stops what it's doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.
When a computer is in Sleep mode, the power light is blinking and you get a blank screen like it's turned OFF.
On most computers, you can resume working by pressing your computer's power button. However, not all computers are the same. You might be able to wake your computer by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse button, or opening the lid on a laptop. Check the documentation that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.
you need to DFU restore your iPhone. Hope you got a backup, because you're losing the stuff on it. with iPhone plugged in, hold down the sleep wake switch, and the home button for about 10 seconds, until the iPhone turns off. Once the screen goes black, continue holding, count to 8. Release sleep wake switch, continue depressing home button. Wait for iTunes to recognize, and you'll be prompted to restore.

It just need an interruption to wake from the sleep mode so its perfectly ok to do so by any key or by the power key....
As far as I understand the nano it does not switch off it goes to sleep which is a low power mode so don't worry but when you put it to sleep remember and put the hold button on and that will stop it from waking up and using power. Hope this helps
