    I usually like to listen to songs while going to sleep and then the ipod keeps on playing for hours. Is there any way to set a sleep timer so that lets say after half an hour or so the ipod will stop playing and if possible exit the app?

    Thanks.
    I noticed that on iphone running 5.01 it says "Sleep iPod", where as your screenshot shows "Stop Playing". Is it a different version? Also "Sleep iPod" seems to be the only option there.

    They changed the wording when they eliminated the iPod app on the iPhone and replaced it with Music and Video apps.

    Just wonder, why did Apple decided to put the timer for iPod in the clock app given that its the only app you can the timer for. It would have been more intuitive and efficient if the timer was provided in iPod app itself. And what would be really nice is to give an option to repeat a song "x" number of times and then stop. Is it possible to do this?
