Listen to radio at night, how to disable turn off timer?

No matter where I look I can't seem to figure out why my ipod Touch turns itself off when I'm listening to an app called iHeart Radio. I'm assuming it would shut off no matter what app I was listening to.

I usually fall asleep, but I'm guessing it turns itself off every 30 minutes or so?

Go to Settings > General > Auto-Lock and choose a time (or set it to Never).

Are you talking about picking up regular FM radio or getting internet radio? for FM radio, there were some accessories that you could get that would add an FM tuner to an iPod, but don't know about compatibility with the Touch. May want to look in the accessories review section of this iLounge website for FM tuner add-ons.

If you are interested in internet radio, iLounge recently did one of those "App Store Gems" articles featuring a number of internet radio apps you could get for the Touch. I personally use Pandora Radio on mine and highly recommend it. Seems Last.FM is also highly recommended as well. Also to add, both Pandora Radio and Last.FM are free.

Yup. Still shutting off even when I put "Never" on the slider.

I don't have any mp3's on my Touch, just listen to app radio. Not sure how to make it stay on without shutting off.

The app needs to be programmed with the ability (or option) to keep the screen on (like many clock programs do).
