    Hi, all. First post here!

    I read a few other threads about Shake to Shuffle, but still haven't found what I'm looking for.

    Is there a way to enable shake to shuffle while your iPod is sleeping? I don't use it when running, I mostly use it in the car, and it's a pain to have to pull up the music controls when I want to change tracks, especially when I'm driving. Is there any way to enable this without jailbreaking your phone?

    I read about two apps (SBSettings and Volume MC) that turn your volume controls into track change buttons when the iPod is locked. That would be nice, but those programs are only for jailbreaked phones. Does anyone know of any approved apps or of a way to change this?

    Someone else suggested that pushing the button should change the volume, but holding it down should change the track. That would be so nice! Why doesn't apple add this feature? Then you would never have to pull your iPod out of your pocket, and could even disable shake to shuffle if you don't like it.
