I need an mp3 player to listen to audio books.
But as far as I know, when you switch it of, it would not remember the last playing position.
Will the IPod remember the last playing position when swicthed off, or not?

YES.. the iPod and all iPhones etc. will remember the last position on an audio file however if you have the audio file saved in AAC format and coded as m4b then it will be categoriesd as an audio book and be listed in the audiobooks section of the music player instead of mixed in with the rest of your music tracks.

Standard Mp3 files can be used as audiobooks but might need to ensure that the remember playback position is set on the file as described here
