I have an ipod classic, the 80gb one. im using an apple dock (the one with all white remote) and a 3rd party AV cable. when i hold pause/play on the remote the ipod turns off and displays charging screen. however, i have it connected to a tv and watch videos, the tv screen still displays a paused picture. now this is not really such a big problem because the ipod wont discharge when it has power, but it is irritating and doesnt add to the life of my ipod. note that to turn it off properly i need to press menu on the ipod, the remote "menu" button does nothing.
