Try Lucid Player for Listening to Music At Night
When you are getting sleepy at night and want to listen to some tunes to help you get to sleep, it can be frustrating to live with the fact that the iPod will just keep on playing all night long as you sleep if you end up dozing off. iOS developer Jay Deuskar has come up with a beautiful solution to those that want to listen to music at night and keep their iPod from playing all night long. The application is called Lucid Player and you can find it in the App Store for just 99¢.
Lucid Player works by allowing you to create a timed playlist from your iPod music. The application unfortunately doesn’t work with third party music solutions like Spotify, Grooveshark, and Pandora. This is because the application relies on you making yourself a playlist out of your own music. You can choose whatever songs you want to listen to, set a timer, and then just doze away. Your iPod will automatically stop playing either when the playlist finishes or when the timer runs out – whichever comes first.
Making a playlist is simple. Just select individual songs, or you can add them all:
After you have forged your playlist out of your music library, you can adjust the timer for however long you want the iPod to play as you doze off:
Admire the beautiful and simple music interface, or just doze off:
The application looks as nice as it functions. From within the application you will find yourself with controls such as play, pause, forward, and previous buttons. There is also a complementary volume slider. These controls give it the same functionality as the Music application, however with the timer functionality, you will never have to worry about your music going on… and on… and on… and on…
Lucid Player works with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. It’s well-worth taking a look at if you like falling asleep to your music, however it can be used for other things as well. The application offers a fully-functional music timer. It’s great for parties because you can set yourself a playlist and have it play for a specific amount of time while hooked up to your home entertainment system. However you choose to use it is up to you!

If you want your music to stop you can use the built in time in the built in clock app on your iPhone and select ipod and how long you want it to play once the timer runs out the music stops

iOS already has the sleep timer feature built in and it works for all things playing including videos, Pandora, etc. Here's how it works: open the Clock app, tap Timer, select time, tap 'When Timer Ends', flick to the bottom and tap 'Stop Playing', tap Set, and start the timer.
Edit: btw, Lucid Player is not a universal app. It may work with iPad, but there's no iPad version. I find this odd considering the iPad lacks the Clock app, thus no built in stop playing function. Gearing this app towards the iPad would be the best route IMO.
Or Apple could just bring the clock app to the iPad, like it should have done in the first place.

All you talking about the sleep timer are obviously overlooking the fact that this is an advertisement for a friend of one of the mods. This isn't the first or best app to do this, and the iPhone already has this feature built in.

Seems pretty pointless unless you have an ipad which apparently you can't use the app on ? lol I've used my clock timer as a "ipod killer" for a while now, works for pandora, ipod, etc

Not only does it do something that my iPhone could already do, but it costs money!?!?!? And it doesn't work with spotify?!?!

Couldn't you also just make a playlist that is a certain length and turn off the loop?
