    I dont know what happened, but all of a sudden, my battery life went to sh*t. I would use it, hit the sleep button, and after 2-4 hours (or whenever I use it next), the battery loses a substantial amount of juice. I dont understand at all. I swear it started happening after I installed two games....but they dont require any internet. I dont know whats going on.

    Any suggestions?

    Games are extremely CPU intensive. They will drain your battery a lot.

    Did you read my whole post? While its sleeping its losing most of its charge. This never used to happen. I could use it for a couple days before I had to charge it. Now its under a day.

    I doubt its as easy as, "My ipods battery may be broken. Give me a new one." Besides, I dont have the time either.

    Going to NY tomorrow morning.

    Also, I realized that my ipod is charging up a lot faster too. It should take 3 hours for a full charge right? I think its taking mine about 2 or a little more.
