    few people actually turn off their device except for out of battery auto shutoff
    sleep is good enough and doesn't have a boot time

    ur battery wont be affected unless you install a lot of jb addons

    It won't affect it. In fact, not turning it off and only shutting off the screen is actually better than constantly turning it off and on. The launch daemons use up so much battery thy putting it into sleep conserves the battery. I personally haven't turned either my iPhone or iPod off since I got them, at 3 months and a year and a half.

    Nope. It will interact with iTunes the exact same it would when it wasn't jailbroken.

    Just to add to Bmac's answer ... iTunes will act the same way and it will show your device, BUT it will ask you if you want to upgrade to 3.1.3 so be aware of what you click ....

    If your profile is correct, and you are on 3.1.3 with a 3rd gen, you will need to downgrade your iPod using Coca Cola's method (the 2nd gen firmware) before you can use Blackra1n.

    That's why he said he would downgrade first

    To keep your battery in good health, completely drain the battery (till it shows the Connect to Power logo. Then let it charge.

    Do it like once a month to keep it in good shape.

    I haven't done that to my iPod, and it's fine. BTW, I've had it almost a year.
