    I just got a 2GB IPod Nano

    When I hold down the play/pause button to turn it off.. the screen goes off.. but when I click on any button it comes back on or I can still here the click wheel.

    Is this normal? Does it not actually turn off and just go into a "sleep mode"t

    It's normal, I think, from what you're describing. iPods go to sleep automatically and go fully off later if they've been sleeping for an extended period of time (transparent -- you don't have to do anything). You can use the hold switch to prevent it from accidentally turning back on. :)

    Thanks.. you are right it doesn't really turn off... it goes to "sleep mode" and after 37hrs or more it goes to "Super Sleep Mode" or whatever.

    The hold switch option is a good idea too.
