I'm having a shutdown issue after using my 6G ipod Classic in the car. After I have turned off the car the ipod will automatically enter a paused state but when i either hold play to shutdown or wait for the idle shutdown it will hang showing the shutting down... text and never turn off. when I manually shutdown the ipod (hold play button) down after using the ipod in the car you can hear the HD spin up and after 4-5 second hear the HD park (click) but still feel the ipod vibrating like the HD is still spinning, the text shutting down... is shown and just stays there and drains the battery. the only way to shut it down it hold menu and select.

In car is a Dension gateway G300 (ipod is connected and controlled with a dock cable, can use car controls to change tracks on ipod apple firmware and rockbox)
I'm currently using using build adaba2b-160820
Installed and tested with both the beta and stable installers from
This task depends upon

I think this has something to do with allowing the HD to spin down. I have set the anti skip buffer to 5mins and if the drive has completely spun down and then the ipod is shutdown it will successfully shutdown.

Just tested revision cf82f20-160830 but still has the same issue. When trying to shut down the ipod you can hear the click of the HD parking the head but you can still feel the HD spinning and the shutting down message just stays on the screen and drains the battery.
