    I have an iPod touch 2g, got it four weeks ago, but its power goes from 40% ish to 20% after leaving it off for a night. Is this the bettery meter giving a false reading or something worse...

    Booting up uses quite a bit of the battery. Don't turn it off, just lock it and leave it in standby.

    lets be honest, booting up is not going to drain 20% of a battery. Run standardized tests, try fully charging, then turning it off, for a set period of time, and see what happens, perhaps the battery calibration is off.

    And if all fails, then return it to the apple store (Unjailbroken).

    Umm, I am not sure if you know this, but the cold kills battery life. Yes its true, if you leave your iPod Touch or any other device with a normal battery (lithium ion and some other types) over night in a cold room or something, in the morning the battery will be either low on power or completely discharged

    It isn't completely off unless you power it off (hold the off button for a few seconds and slide off). I think you did that but just making sure. I have had this problem once but never since. If yours is consistent, think about returning it.

    this happens to mine when i reboot it, it seems like there is less battery but in about 15mins or so the battery symbol is back to what it was before, it just takes a while for the sensor thing to kick in i think
