How to Enable Sleep Mode : 1. Access the main menu on your iPod 2. Go to the extras menu > clock 3. Select your current time ensuring that your timezone settings are correct 4. Select the Sleep Timer options 5. Select the time that you want your iPod to shut down
And if your iPod goes into Deep Sleep Mode then here is the answer to that : Right "Deep Sleep" is a battery saving mode if the iPod is not touched in say a 18-24 hour period I think. It reboots (resets) coming out of this mode.
1) There are people reporting that they must always reset their iPod to turn it back on after shutting it off, they don't really mention deep sleep at all, search for "must always reset" or something along those lines
2) I'm not sure if this is documented anywhere specifically. It is a normal function of the iPod that we discovered somewhere along the line. Not sure where the first talk about it came from, you may find information on this searching "deep sleep" there was a hack to force the iPod immediately into deep sleep once upon a time.
3) Not exactly. If an iPod has gone into deep sleep, plugging it into the power will automatically start the reboot. In the case of buttons you should be able to touch a button and it will start to reboot, I have found with my 3G iPod it takes a very deliberate touch or two or three touches to the touch sensitive buttons to get it to wake up, but you shouldn't HAVE to do the reset command (i.e. menu/select button held down), if you do you may be looking at more of the original problemin #1
