The iPod is a brand of portable media players designed and marketed by Apple Computer. Devices in the iPod family provide a simple user interface designed around a central scroll wheel (with the exception of the iPod shuffle). The standard iPod model stores media on a built-in hard drive, while the smaller iPod shuffle and iPod nano use flash memory. Like most digital audio players, an iPod can serve as an external data storage device when connected to a computer.
Discontinued versions of the iPod include two generations of the popular iPod mini and four generations of the full-sized iPod, all of which had monochrome screens except for the 4th generation iPod with color screen (previously sold as iPod photo before it replaced the monochrome iPod in the main line). As of June 2006, the lineup consists of the 5th generation iPod, which has video playback capabilities; the iPod nano, which has a color screen; and the iPod shuffle; all three models were released in 2005. The iPod is currently the world's best-selling digital audio player. The bundled software used for uploading music, photos, and videos to the iPod is called iTunes. A music jukebox application, iTunes stores a comprehensive library of the user's music on their computer, and can play, burn, and rip music from a CD. The most recent incarnations of iPod and iTunes have video playing and organization features.

2. Connect your iPod to your Mac
3. The iPod clock will automatically synchronize to the date and time of your Mac

Sleep Timer
You can set Sleep Timer preferences to switch off your iPod after 15, 30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes. When you set Sleep Timer preferences, the iPod will play for that amount of time and then switch off. The Sleep Timer then automatically resets to its default of Off. You will need to set the Sleep Timer each time you wish to use it.

To set the Sleep Timer:

1. From the Main Menu click to select Extras - Clock - Sleep Timer and click to select the duration you want (15, 30, 60, 90, or 120 Minutes)
2. Notice that when you set the Sleep Timer, a clock icon and the number of minutes left until iPod turns off will appear in the Now Playing screen
3. When the iPod turns off, the Sleep Timer automatically resets to Off. You will need to set the Sleep Timer each time you wish to use it

Alarm Clock
You can use iPod as an alarm clock to wake you up in the morning or to set reminder alerts.

2. Click to select Alarm and to set it to On
3. Scroll to (and click to select) Time
4. Scroll through the time (hours, minutes, AM/PM) and click to select the desired time
5. Scroll to (and click to select) Sound
6. Scroll among the sounds and click to select the one you want. Note that if you select Beep, the alarm will be audible through the internal speaker. If you select a playlist, you’ll need to connect speakers or headphones to your iPod to hear the alarm.


Hope this helps
