    I'm not sure if this has been brought up yet, but it seems that after I installed iOS 4 onto my iPod Touch 3G 8G (which i know is technically a 2G...) my iPod's battery gets eaten alive. I can't go a single day without charging it, but i never had this issue with iOS 3. I was thinking that maybe something is running in the background that's just totally killing the battery.

    Maybe my iPod's battery juts plain sucks, or maybe its an issue/side effect of iOS 3, either way has anyone else had this issue?

    ). Everytime you close an app on iOS4 (don't know if this happens on your touch), it goes to the background and eats up all of one's battey. Just restore and JB man, it's better!

    I have an iPhone 3GS and I've been pretty impressed with the batter life. Obviously i'm not on an iPod touch but the battery life is tons better than iOS 3. Granted, I was jailbroken on iOS 3 but even so...

    @joes With the iPod 8GB you dont get the backgrounding feature so idk what else it could be, who knows what apple did with this new OS.

    I was also jailbroken on iOS 3 that just killed the battery life on it so i decided to not jailbreak anymore. My battery seemed fine on iOs 3, but now upgraded it seems that my iPod jailbroken on iOS 3, running god knows what in the background, had literally about the same battery life as my iPod iOS4 now. Just bs...

    Well, maybe some extra processes? I'm not sure about this, but I think that your wi-fi is always on even if you lock your device. That doesn't consum much battery though.

    The iPod Touch 1g doesn't have 4.0 at all.

    Correct. Maybe it would have supported 4.0, since we have seen it multi tasking and having backgrounds thanks to jailbreaking

    Another excuse for Apple's lazyness

    Its the wifi. It does not turn off when the device is locked.

    Btw, the apps in the background shouldn't be the problem because they are not in use. It the new "multi tasking"

    Try Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data. Turn push off, and reboot. That battery killing bug thingy happened to me on 3.X
