    well, my friend says that he turns off his ipod every night. but... i dont think it doesnt matter but now. i kinda worry cause it could damage your ipod battery. so my ipod is jailbroken not with "run rs" so I dont really want to turn it off. so the question is it is bad not to turn it off?

    I haven't turned off my iPod in 3 months due to the fact that I thought putting it to sleep = turning it off, and it has been perfectly fine. When I knew how to actually turned it off, I did. I've only turned my iPod off twice after 2-3 weeks. I don't think it really matters.

    I've heard that turning it off excessively can wear down your battery life. but i have no proof of that. I never turn mine off. It sleeps or i have it charging when it's low.

    Simple answer: A bit.

    When you put your iPod into sleep it is still running, and still using a tiny bit of charge. The battery's used in the iPod/iPhone can only be charged a limited number of times, so you will end up having to replace the battery sooner.

    I turn it off for a few hours on every Saturday to let it rest.

    I turn it off every once in a while.

    Just in case it's bad for the system or could mess it up.
