Sansa Clip goes into "sleep mode" while charging

This may be a newbie question but since I’m a newbie, I guess I can ask it :wink:

When my Sansa Clip is recharging, it goes into “sleep mode” after a while. I just need to push the “menu” button to bring it back to life. Is it supposed to do this? Will it make the recharging longer?

Thanks for answering my newbie question. I’ve enjoyed reading the posts here a lot as they helped me better use the Sansa Clip I bought yesterday.

If I understand you correctly, yep, that’s normal, to preserve the screen life (and many were complaining about the screen remaining on, with the somewhat distracting animation).  It will not affect the recharge time.
