    Select 'settings' then 'shuffle' then change it from 'off' to 'songs'. Start playing your playlist and it will be in a shuffle stylee...

    I use this all the time too, but it is frustrating because I like some playlists shuffled and some not. With this turned on it will shuffle every playlist that you listen to. I hope this fix this in the future.

    on the bottom left of the iTunes window you have 4 buttons
    .new playlist
    .shuffle songs
    .repeat
    .artwork

    iTunes will remember the selection for every playlist

    That doesn't seem to stick once the iPod is synced up.

    I know you can just tell the iPod to shuffle songs, but that's pain if you want to listen to an album or something and the whole album is shuffled and out of order. Anyone have any other suggestions that will make certain playlists shuffle once they are on the iPod?

    I'm a long time iPod user and as far as I'm aware, all you can do is manually change the shuffle setting in Settings when you move to a playlist you do or do not want to listen to shuffled. It would be nice if the iPod was able to shuffle or not shuffle on a playlist by playlist basis based upon the iTunes settings, but it just doesn't... It's annoying, but it's hardly an effort to change the setting.

    Yeah, I understand your point. It's not so much an effort, but an annoyance. It just looks like an oversight, but maybe there's some profound technical reason it can't be done.
