Hi Guys,
I own a iPOD photo (a 40 GB) now for a week, and have discovered an issue

this morning :
The ipod was fully charged resting in its docking station (usinf firewire) when I left to bed. My girlfriednd switched of the PC without taking the IPOD out of the stocking station.
And now get what happens !
The Ipod was fully discharged and in emergency sleeps this morning.
Shouldn't the Ipod stand longer time anyhow than 8 hours sleep ?
Or does the coziness of the dock make him stay very very awake ?

I am puzzled

Does anyone have an idea on that ?

Regards / breglis

discharge

my iPod Photo 60 GB discharges even while PC is switched on, device connected via docking station with USB-port, iTunes running. It discharges even when using the Power Adapter. Since I bought it for photos and audiobooks I do not use the ipod every day. Maybe it was unused for a few weeks. Since then I never get it fully loaded. When I get it loading the battery will be completely flat after some time. Date and time are reset.
Apple announced to send me a pack where I should put the ipod and send it in for repair. I need the photo storage for my next trip in July. I never experienced such a comlicated scheme for help with an electronic device.
Regards
Bernd
