MP3 Players With Sleep Function?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I want to buy my dad an MP3 player for Christmas. He mainly listens in bed at night and usually falls asleep with it on.

Are there any players with a sleep function or auto off feature?

ipods will do that... provided he doesn't have it set on repeat!!

probably most other players will too.

He could use an iPod, make some random genius playlist with 25 songs, turn off repeat, and fall asleep to that.

For most players you can always just use a playlist/artist and play through it without repeat and it'll stop, and eventually will either go to sleep itself or shut down.

Rockboxed players have sleep timer, or at least my iPod does.

Any cowon player will do that.

Any rockbox player.

Ok so the trick is to use playlists and when it's done with the list it will shutdown (most players do this)?

A Sansa Fuze 8gb will do this?

Zune will do that too if you use specific playlists or something, actually it'll technically do that if you shuffle all the songs too, but if he has as many songs as I do he won't finish them all before waking up lol.

edit: aha 100 posts, yay

sansa fuze and clip has a sleep timer. You can set the time in minutes for the player to shut off automatically.

Might be true for ipods but is not for the two players I have owned.  They just go round in a loop unitl the batery dies.

Sony players have it too.

Just make sure the settings aren't set to "Never" for screen timeout and auto shutdown.

Many players have an explicit sleep function, such as the Sansa Clip+ and Fuze.  The Samsung P3 has it.  The iPhone 3gs has a sleep function available as part of the clock feature (I don't own a Touch but assume it would be there too).  For each, the player shuts down after the set time, no matter where it might be in a playlist.

There is not sleep timer function on that crippled hardware named Zune.
