    Ok so sometimes im trying to istall something from cydia or the app store and they are big so i have to wait a while, But when i let the ipod go into sleep mode itself. I know there is a setting for this in sbsettings but what is the name of it and where can i get it and can i get it from cydia? Also i need this when i'm sshing so i don't have to keep clicking on the screen so it won't go into sleep mode. So thanks for your help.

    As far as I know appstore will download stuff when it is locked, but cydia won't for some reason. Sorry

    You don't have to! Go to Cydia and download SBSettings then download a toggle called "keepawake"(might be a space) when the toggles on your wifi stays on when it goes into sleep mode.

    P.S. This runs the battery down faster.

    Don't forget to turn Keepawake off when you don't need it. I charged my iPod to 100% unplugged it and forgot Keepawakr was on and went to bed. I woke up the next morning for school and turned my iPod on and was greeted with the lovely flashing red battery and power bolt, lol. I guess that's why it's always good to have a backup iPod like a nano.
