    Maybe I'm missing something completely obvious--I've googled this question to no avail--but is there some way to set a sleep timer for music to stop playing on your iPad? I know that the option was kind of hidden on iPhone (under clock>timer or whatever), but I can't find any similar option on the iPad. I downloaded some app that purports to function as a sleep timer, but it's not ideal.

    Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

    Nope you are not missing anything -- Apple left off the clock app from the iPad, so no sleep timer function. Really lame! :mad:

    A shame apple didn't include the clock app.

    The only workaround is the fact that now apple let's you create and edit multiple playlists straight from the iPad.

    Make a playlist of about 10 songs and turn repeat off, then you have a sleep timer of about 30 mins.

    Sleep Timer

    I found a new app called "Awaken" that lets you set a timer for when music (video or podcast) will turn off at specified time. I think it's a couple of bucks.

    Such a strange decision to leave out the clock from the iPad...
    Hope they correct the omission for 4.0

    ...of course OS 4 will have multitasking so you won't need Apple's timer App then.;)

    Sure, but that is months away. In the meantime it would be nice if Apple make the iPhone clock app available for download on the App Store. I don't think people care about graphics w/ this app, just the functionality. I can think of no valid reason why Apple has essentially banned this app from the iPad.

    That is THE point I was making (read the post I quoted). It's needed now not later when OS 4 comes out.
