    Has anyone else been having this problem since upgrading to a 4.0 jailbreak? I didn't install multitasking so it's not that, and I usually have my iPod in airplane mode. I turned off location services and my iPod only checks for mail when I enter the application. It was 95% charged today, I listened to some songs for a while in the car and it went down to 94%. I went to sleep when it was at 94% and when I woke up 5 hours later, it was out of batteries. I didn't have any application on or anything. Sometimes I leave the alarm clock on, but that didn't used to drain it so much. This has been happening a lot lately.

    I got my iPod a little over a year ago, but the top button was broken so I got it replaced a couple of months ago for free. I'm pretty sure that that warranty has run out, but I've only had it for a couple months!!

    On my iPod it seems when airplane mode is on the battery runs out quicker, I honestly don't know why, but that may be your problem.

    It's happened once when airplane mode was off though, but I'm pretty sure it runs out slower when it's on because that means my wifi is off and all.

    Well try using the actual wifi on/off switch instead of using airplane mode. See if you notice a change.

    Yeah, it seems iOS 4 has been a real battery killer.
