    I put my iPod Touch in sleep mode before I went to bed and the battery was at 95%.
    Then when I woke up the battery has drained to 70%.
    Before I updated I could put it in sleep mode and get no battery drain at all.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Yes! I was on like 50% and went to 20% in about 9 hours of sleep. Also Pandora really messes up on iOS4, and the whole thing is slower.

    With the new update, your iPod/iPhone will stay connected to wifi even when it is in sleep mode. I have been searching everywhere for a way to switch this off, as now I have to keep manually turning off wifi when I want to put it into sleep

    It's so users can stay connected to the internet so apps can use VOIP and location services while the iPod is in sleep mode. I think that's the main reason, only one I can think of

    But I hate the new battery draining feature.

    Do you all have 2Gs? I am wondering because if your adding other features that Apple doesn't support on your device that may be why, such as multitasking or wallpapers, that may account for the loss of battery life.

    Yeah that makes sense, but it should be optional.
    I can still get push notifications so I don't think it's needed.

    yes I am using a 2g and i do have the other features added, but that should have nothing to do with the battery draining in sleep mode.
    I can understand the battery draining while in use.

    It's a very bad implementation if it stays on all the time though. It would be much easier on the battery if the Wi-Fi chip only remained on when an app actually wants to use it, rather than all the time. Right now, iOS 4 is completely ridiculous on iPod touches (which have noticeably smaller batteries than iPhones); keeping my iPod on sleep, my iPod lasts two days without a charge, tops, where the occasional 10-minute charges in my car used to be enough to keep it fully charged for the few moments I use it in a day.
