Why can't you instantly turn off your iPod?

Why does Apple make you hold down a button for 3 seconds to turn off your iPod?

Why not provide a big OFF button that instantly turns it off?

Very annoying. It would be a great service to the world if someone were to create an easily-installed software patch for iPods that fixes that.

Whip out your AK and cut it in half with a fusillade of bullets for added badness.

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.

One of the things I hate about laptops is that sometimes you have to pull the battery to really turn it off.

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!"
