    Ok, so I charged my iPod up to 32% power yesterday, and I just got home and it is off, instead of in sleep mode. I turn it on, and it says that I have less then 10% remaining. What is wrong? Its only been in sleep mode for about when I went to sleep and when I got home from school.

    Whenever you turn your iPod off and then on, you lose ALOT of battery, thats why you always should just leave it in Sleep Mode. I havent actually turned my iPod completely off in months...

    It wasn't off, it was in sleep mode. It somehow changed to off, I think because the loss of battery power. I just want to know why I am losing that much so fast.

    this sorta has been happening to me lately too. i fully charge it, then unplug it, 30 mins later without ever even taking it out of sleep mode its at like 45%! i never turn it off all the way and this is really wierd. i wonder if its our ipods? is this happening to everyone?

    Had the same problem, make sure its not around other electronics, and also make sure you dont have ssh on.when i had this problem all i did was made sure ssh was completely off, and uninstalled.

    I have the same problem, and this is what I have found.

    If I am at the lockscreen and go into sleep the device does not make a "click" sound. This is when the battery continues to run down. I no longer put it in sleep mode from the lockscreen, I will unlock and go to springboard to sleep. When I do this I hear the "click".

    Basically my experience has been if you do not hear the "click" when putting it to sleep, it never really goes to sleep and your battery will be dead by morning. If for some reason I don't hear a "click" I try it again to be sure.

    This started happening to me after upgrading to FW 2.1...it was never an issue when I was on 1.1.4.

    Thank you for your response. I never had the problem on 1.1.X either, so we are in the same position. I will try that. Thanks again in advance.

    EDIT: I just realized, you can't here the "click" when you put it into sleep mode when on the lock screen. I might have done that.

    Get SBSettings and get some toggles like SSH, so you can quickly turn it off when you don't use it. Also use the WiFi toggle, it uses lots of battery.
    Make the brightness lower when you don't need it high.

    There was a sticky thread that tells how to save battery life, search for it.
