    Sometimes when i play games or listening to music, the bottom of my ipod slowly gets hotter over time until it's really hot. I turn it off but it happens again when i turn it back on. anyone know why?

    That's the CPU of the ipod just getting some activity so therefore is getting hot. Is normal only when you are playing games. I never had it felt hot on just playing music alone, The music player doesn't take that much CPU power anyway.

    In some cases it can get bad, but burnouts maybe. But I believe apple has a built in code that shuts off the problem that is causing the it to overheat in the first place. Just like your computer turns off if your Processor is getting really overheated.

    Same thing happens to my iPod touch, especially when playing games for some time, say, 30 min of Bejeweled or UNO... Like one of the forumers said, this must be due to the CPU being heavily utilized for this purpose...

    However, the heating does not happen when I'm listening to music or accessing the Internet... Although the battery will lose it's power rather quickly...
