Random songs aftre charging

I have a few hundred songs in a playlist that will play in random order fine. But after I charge my Nano it starts playing randomly all over again. Is there a way to have it start from where it left off?

Probably through a smart playlist or two. It may not be perfect.

Put the songs you want into a Playlist named Songs, note how many songs are in there.
Create a Smart Playlist with the rules Playlist is Songs, check the box next to Limit To, set the number to 1 less than the count in Songs, and set Selected By to random. Name this playlist Random Songs.
Create a Smart Playlist with the rules Playlist is Random Songs and Last Played IS NOT IN THE LAST 1 day. Name this playlist My Radio

Sync all 3 playlists to the iPod. Select the My Radio playlist to listen.

If you charge less often than daily, you can modify My Radio to be 2 days or 3 days.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
