    Hey,
    I got my ipod touch in december 2008 and I jailbroke it recently. However, the battery wasn't lasting very long; it lasted around 4 days. In these 4 days, for 3 of the hours, it was being used constantly. I installed SBSettings and decided to turn off SSH and the wi-fi when I'm not using the ipod. How long should a battery last in sleep mode?

    Thanks.

    It depends on what you have running.
    With jailbreak there are some apps that can run daemons that run in the background.

    If you do not need the alarm you might try actually shutting down the unit when not in use as standby does take up battery. To do so, if you don't already know, hold down the power/lock button at the top for 3-5 seconds then slide the slider to power off. Hold it for 3-5 seconds again to power on.

    Actually lasting 4 days is pretty good. I use mine all the time..the only time I turn off my wifi is when I go to sleep. I use it a lot soo mine only lasts about 2-3 days.

    If I use it to listen to music like all the time and maybe play some games for an hour or two, it goes down to like 60%. >_>

    Lol I charge mine quite often. But I play games like Real Racing, which really runs the battery low. So I think mine would last 2-3 days, but I like to keep it on charge. Also I have mine on full brightness lol.

    Turning Location Services and Wi-fi also Brightness down to 25% will allow your device to stay power longer.
