  1. I don’t do anything specifically different to stop automatic backup. I backup my ipod when I feel there is a need and simply click the x to stop the backup and proceed on to the sync. I do however keep my iPod in manually manage mode and turn off automatic syncing in the preferences. Also, I don’t let Apple Mobile Device support or iPod Helper run all the time. I have two batch files. One to start the services with “net start (Service Name)” and one to stop the services with “net stop (Service Name)”.
