    Hey people. This morning I experienced the weirdest thing. Last night I was playing on my iPod, surfing the web, on cydia, etc. When I got tired, I turned the iPod off, well put it on hold, making sure my music was not playing. When I woke up this morning, I pushed the hold button to open my iPod, and nothing, it was dead. I plugged it to my computer and nothing. I tried all sorts of things, until one worked; holding the hold and home button, until my computer recognized it. I realized that the batteries had completely drained. Is there any application that uses power even when my iPod is on hold? I know the batteries are lithium ion, so it does not matter if you drain them, or charge them too much, so that could not affect the batteries performance....

    Any help would be gold.

    There are actually a lot of things that could be draining your iPod's battery, and most are easy to fix.
    -The iPod could easily be draining because of Wi-Fi, which drains the battery quite quickly.
    -Do you have a theme running from an app such as Winterboard? Themes drain the battery as well.
    -Is 'Ask to join networks on?' If so, you should turn it off, considering the fact that you are already connected TO a wi-fi spot. (The program may consistently look for a wi-fi source)
    -Do you have any programs such as Mewseek or Mewseek pro? Make sure you exit out of them when you're done, because it still runs wether the iPod is on or not.
    -Do you have an app such as Backgrounder? This could have some battery sucking apps run in the background.
    -A lithium battery drains if it's not plugged in, even if the device is off.
    You COULD just charge your iPod when your done with it, which is the easiest fix.
    Hope this helps!

    My battery drains when I turn off my 2G and leave it connected to the (turned off) computer all night long.

    if you read the manual it says that a connected ipod on a computer that's turned off WILL drain your battery

    thanks for the tips, I will completely turn off my ipod next time. But I did not know that apps still run even if your ipod is on hold.

    I am not sure what happened, it is still a mystery, but I now realize that when I put my iPod on hold, for about 10 or so minutes, my iPod shuts down, it is just like what a laptop does when it goes to sleep for a long time, it hibernates or turns off. Is there a thing I might have enabled to do this??

    Any information would be helpful.
    Thanks in advance.


    *I believe that my iPods battery draining so fast was due to my ipod checking mail repeatedly through the night, but I still need help for the above problem*


    After hours of research and testing, I have discovered the problem. Under settings, the Fetch new data was put to EVERY 15 MINUTES, causing the iPod to continuously check my mail and eventually turn off. So I changed it to Manualy, which I hope will do the trick.

    Just thought I would let everyone know the solution.
