    Well to my knowledge, you can't "overcharge" your iPod. I leave mine sitting on the charger everynight with nothing wrong. I'm pretty sure that unless the charger doesn't limit the amount of electricity into the iPod, no overcharging should take place.

    If it's hot, then I would just leave it sit (with the screen NOT on) or just turn it off.

    How can you tell its overcharged? The battery will only allow so much power, after that it will not allow anymore. So you're safe

    There's a protection circuit in the battery that prevents your battery from being overcharged, so it shouldn't be damaged unless the battery itself is faulty in which case seek advice from Apple. However, the excess heat won't have done it much good. It should still work but get yourself a brand charger. Not worth the risk. For more stuff on looking after your battery see the battery link in my sig.

    I never heard of such a thing of overcharging it, but anyway, go to iTunes, back it up, and restore.

    Overcharge is not possible unless by faulty hardware, and the heat is normal UNLESS it is unconformable to the touch, then go to apple.
