Let me give you a little background here so you know what I'm trying to do.

I have an 80GB iPod Classic and an iHome as an alarm clock. When I go to bed at night I turn my iPod on and set the iHome sleep timer to 60 minutes. I also have my alarm set to go off using the iPod.

The problem is that almost every morning when my alarm sounds, I don't wake up to soft music - I wake up to "beep beep beep beep". The problem; my iPod played through an entire album the night before so when it "awakes" the next morning nothing is queued up.

I notice when you are listening to a song you can hit the center button a few times and it takes you to this little shuffle screen. I thought that by selecting "shuffle albums" I would solve this little issue. I figured if I was listening to say Sigur Ros's first album it would immediatley shuffle between all Sigur Ros albums and keep playing. I've tested this a few times and when it stops playing the first album I selected it just stops...it doesn't shuffle anything.

Am I doing something wrong or am I just missing the picture here?

What you need to do it repeat the albums.
Make it so that it loops and you'll see a little loop logo.
If you want to repeat the sam song everytime you will
see the loop logo but it will have a little 1 with a circle
around it in the bottom right hand corner
