Hi. I was charging my IPOD shuffle from my laptop using the IPOD docking station. I disconnected the ipod with 'removing device safely' - i just pulled it out!.Immediately my laptop shut down and will not power up, it is showing no signs of power at the 'power' light icons on the front console for the mains or battery power. The power adaptor seems fine as the green light icon is working and showing power from the adaptor.
You may have inadvertently killed the power module of the laptop. that has happened to me a couple of times, so far, and repair has always been in the hundreds of dollars. I hope that is not the problem in your case. Have you tried using a universal power supply to make sure that your power supply is not the issue? Anyways, the best of luck to you.

To charge the battery using your computer:
Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer using the included
iPod shuffle Dock. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some
models of Macintosh can charge iPod shuffle while in sleep mode).
When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is orange. When the
battery is fully charged, the status light turns green.
If you don't see the status light, iPod shuffle might not be connected to a high-power
USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.
To charge the battery using an iPod USB Power Adapter If you do not have then you have to buy the same from Apple Store)
1 Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected).
2 Plug the USB connector of the iPod shuffle Dock into the power adapter.
3 Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet.

There may not be enough power from the docking station to power the nano. There are also rare times when it wont charge because the ipod doesn't recognize it and wont charge to protect itself. Try plugging it in directly into your laptop if possible.
First Turn your PC on. The PC needs to be on to transfer music and charge the iPod shuffle.
Then Place the iPod shuffle in the iPod dock connector if you have the newer version. If you're using the original version, then plug it directly into a high-power USB port on your PC.
Check the monitor to ensure iTunes has loaded. This means a connection was established.

I bought an Ipod shuffle 2nd generation yesterday, it charged all night and orange light was still blinking. Tried listening to songs and sometimes it would play but most times wouldn't. Took it back for exchange and same problem. Then I realized the problem is not with the USB plug or computer reoconizing ipod but in the docking itself. I applied pressure on the top side of docked Ipod and bottom of docking station and the computer recognized the Ipod. Release pressure and lose connection. The problem is that the docking station and earbuds do not connect with ipod and the fixes provided by apple doesn't address or fix this problem.
