    Hey guys,
    I tried looking for a specific thread, but couldn't find one.

    Ever since I upgraded to 2.0, my iPod would just shut off at random times when I have it idle.. I have my work email address set up through the Microsoft Exchange, and when I'm walking around the building, I would check my email, and a couple minutes later, I would go to check again but my iPod is completely off. I'd have to hard boot and turn it on again which would take upwards of 10+ seconds and would drain a chunk of my battery life.

    When I upgraded to 2.1, I saw this happen less frequently, still at random times on idle.
    I deleted ALL of my app store apps, and re-installed only facebook and remote. I haven't seen it happen yet. *Crossing my fingers*.

    Could this be due to applications or software corruption?

    Has anyone else had this problem?


    - Ex.

    What happened that you have too many processes at once which cause the device to shutdown

    Oh okay, that make sense. Thanks a lot for clearing that up.

    I thought they said in the keynote that the firmware update was supposed to kill processes unlike jailbreaking?

    In any case, is there a way to kill processes? (Without jailbreaking or SSH)

    When you done using an app. Hold down the home button for about 7 or so secs till it goes back to the spring board. This will completely exit the app.

    Thanks a lot, I'll definitely try this.

    I'm at work right now, and without using any apps, the iPod shut off on me about 2 times.. which is better than having 2.0, shutting of 20x times throughout the day.

    Ugh!

    My iPod Touch (2.0.2 FW) keeps shutting off still. Regardless of holding down the home button to end processes.

    Insight anyone?

    Oh man, that's not good.
    I didn't know the firmware could affect the hardware.

    I'm thinking about downgrading to 1.1.4, and upgrading right up to 2.0.2.
    I hope that would work.
    If not, I'm going to wait for Zibri's new application and jailbreak and see if that fixes the problem.

    I've never had this problem until I upgraded to the 2X firmware.

    I have jailbroken with QuickPWN thinking it would resolve the issue, but it keeps shutting off.
    This is really a hindrance when trying to use the Microsoft Exchange Email support at work.

    Does anyone have any advise or insight into this matter? It would be greatly appreciated.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    I think it might have something to do with the wi-fi.
    When I'm at home, my iPod does not shut off completely at random times.
    When I'm at work, it constantly shuts off.

    Any ideas?
