Only the obvious one you probably don't want to hear . . .
Take the skin off.
Most covers/cases/skins in order to protect the player are too thick to allow the player to 'snuggle into' a dock or base station.

Have you looked at the Invisible Shield at www.zagg.com?
Probably the thinnest, toughest skin you can get. Clear, so you don't see it (too much), extremely scratch-resistant, and custom-made for your particular player.
Of course, 'custom-made' always implies the most expensive, but it's not outrageous ($25 the last time I checked), and I'm sure you could still plug your player into your dock with no problems.
You can also just get a 1/2 skin for the front screen of the player if you want ($10).
