I apologize for the delay in answering the questions that have been asked on Creative MuVo. But here they are: 1. You only have to hold the play button when you turn it on initially and when you are all done and turn it off. While playing tapping the play button will pause and resume playback. 2. whenever you change batteries or put the player back together after you ahve unplugged it from the computer it does remember the mode you were in whether it is music record or radio and your exact point where you left off. So if your battery dies in the middle of a song if you put in a new battery it will pick up at the spot on the song you left off at. 3. there is no place for an ac adapter. 4. it is compatible with audible books. At one time audible.com was giving away a MuVo with a year's contract I believe. I assume you have to load audible software but you could probably get that info from audible's web site. If you give me ideas of what you might be interested in hearing I might be able to do some other podcasts. Synthia M.
