    I have had the Touch since launch, and Jailbroken.
    So I used my touch before going to sleep, and left it on standby with no music playing, headphones out. SSH of as usual, and battery life was near full.

    I wake up, and try to turn my iPod on to check my mail and the battery was completely dead, it was telling me to charge it... I was like WTH! This has never happened before, any ideas?

    Open SSH does not eat up any battery life as it doesn't have a constantly running daemon. You might want to install that and leave it on. That way if something happens, you can get into your iPod.

    That said, I leave mine on all night every night with the WiFi and SSH blazing at full speed, with next to no battery life lost, so you can rule that out. You might want to install SysInfo from Installer and use it to kill off any applications you might have running before lettign it sit for a while.

    Also, I have a question. Was your iPod connected to your computer all night? That has been known to kill a battery. It is also even done that while the computer was merely sleeping.

    Good Luck,
    Skylar

    I don't understand. You mean like left charging on a computer overnight? I do that all the time..I can't imagine why that would eat up your battery. Can you explain this more?

    Also, if you don't want to bother manually closing any open apps, you can just restart or respring your springboard. It clears any application running in the background.

    No, it wasn't connected to my PC, its just odd.

    I never "kill" any applications/restart my springboard before I leave it on standby.

    Thanks for those tips, I'll see if it happens again.

    Ok, I am confused - are you saying that if I leav my wifi on and connected to my home network - but nothing USING it ( mail, installer Safari etc ) that I should notice hardly ANY battery loss??

    IMO, I see big battery drain when wifi is on, even if I am not transferring data......
