I noticed, that every time I'm in the car listening to music, and I disconnect the iPod 30G (5th gen), while its playing, and I then try to shut it down, it'll jump to the main window and will not move away from it.

From this point on, I cannot turn off the device nor more away from the main window. Only a HR will resolve this and let the iPod come back to normal working order.

Further more, while it is in that situation (which it is right now, while I write this), the device won't even go on sleep or turn off the monitor. So basically, it'll stay with the screen wide awake and lit up.

The two only buttons that will work are the Hold button, which will in turn, turn off the screen and the scroll will allow me to scroll up and down and around on the main window.

Q: What sort of car connection do you use? Line-out+power, or MSC? Or the accessory protocol?
A: I'm not familiar with these connection and their types. All I know is that it is connected to the car stereo from back (ie. the stereo was pull out and the adapter was connected in the back). Also, that it is a connection that connects to the bottom of the iPod (ie. flat and wide connection). It gives me control from the car's stereo and the steering wheel. When I bought it and then they hooked it up, they told me this is an iPod adapter.

This DOES NOT happen if first stop the music and go to another menu BEFORE I disconnect it from the adapter.

Sounds like an iap (iPod Accessory Protocol) bug.
