    i mean how can i switch off my iPod nano completely?
    Holding down the Play/Pause button will do it?
    or is there any way to really shut down the iPod nano completely?

    The "sleep" mode it's usually in will last weeks on a good charge. For the most part, there's no reason to do a hard-shutdown.

    If the battery runs too low, the unit will "die" on it's own. During normal use this really doesn't happen. Do you want to store it for a while?

    Just leave it be. It will shut down on it's own when it has been asleep for a while.

    FYI it's best to store a lithium rechargeable battery for long periods of time at something like 40% of full charge.

    I heard Lithium Ion batteries were meant to be fully charged before storage. :confused:

    There's something on the Apple site about charging iBook/PowerBook batteries before storage and they're essentially the same cell AFAIK.
