iPod "Sleep Timer"

I have a 60 GB iPod Photo and I'm embarrassed to say that I've never really explored all it's capabilities. I recently became aware that it has a sleep timer - who knew :D

So while playing with this exciting new functionality, I found that I could add "Sleep" to the main menu.

I thought that "Sleep" would activate the sleep timer. No so.

When I click on "Sleep" nothing happens. The sleep timer doesn't activate, the iPod doesn't go to sleep - nothing.

Does anyone know what this menu item is supposed to do? Does it put your iPod to sleep? Maybe mine is just a dud.

I looked at the on-line manual for my iPod and also queried the Apple site, but couldn't find anything.

Thanks Margaret

It's suppose to put your iPod to sleep, but it doesn't always do it - I think it has to do with if the hard drive is spinning or not. The Sleep Timer function is activated from the Clock menu (under Extras).
