Set timer to stop playing music

 It’s easy to fall asleep while listening to music or watching a video late at night. If you find yourself doing this a lot, you can set a sleep timer that will stop playing music or video, and close any other open app after a specific period of time. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Open the Clock app from the Home screen.
  2. Select Timer at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Flick the “hours” and “mins” wheels to set the time until shut down.
  4. Tap the button labeled “When Timer Ends,” select the “Sleep iPod” option, and tap on the “Set” button.
  5. Hit the “Start” button when you want to start the timer.
