losing my place in audiobook when docking

I am trying to listen to an audiobook on my ipod (in mp3 format, not audible) and i'm getting annoyed because i lose my place whenever i dock my ipod to recharge or update. is there a way around this, or does it always reset after docking?

also, i find that if i don't use my ipod for a day or so, i turn it on and it shows that damn apple logo for a good 15 seconds before turning on and it's reset again! even the annoying 'click' of the clickwheel is enabled.

i don't know if these 2 issues are related, but i just want my ipod to come back to where i left off!

This is normal, every time you plug it into your computer to update it or add new songs, the iPod "resets" it place when playing audio. If you start a playlist and are on the 120th song out of 500, it will exit the playlist and you will have to start from the beginning. The reason your iPod is showing the Apple logo after more than a day of non-use is because your iPod turns itself off. When it does not show the Apple logo it just comes out of hybernation. Everythin you are decribing is normal.

You can convert your audiobooks to a bookmarkable format, which will not only allow you to retain your playback position, but will even sync your playback position between the iPod and iTunes.

See this thread for information on how to do this.

thanks for the help i would definitely suggest to apple that in a firmware upgrade, they add an option where you can have the ipod save its position regardless of docking or shutting down
