It's not just the ipod that you can't turn off instantly anymore!
I understand when it comes to my PC or DVR, since they have hard drives, but anything else, not so much.

Yes, it's like these devices all have emotional issues and cannot bear to part from you lest you leave them for some other device.
Or maybe they reflect the emotional issues of their designers.
I just had that exact same experience you describe with a laptop. I had to pull out the battery to really get it to turn off.
It would be a great marketing advantage for some PC, phone, or music player to advertise "OFF button that really turns this fucker off, instantly!"
