    is there anyway to stop SSH from being on when turn on my iPod? It is always on and I know it uses memory so I would like it off by default when I turn on my iPod.

    It does not use memory or battery power, it is only a launchd process that is ready to be activated when needed.

    Are you sure? Cause I remember when I had a 1G, people said that it is a power waster to have it on.

    That was back in the 1.x days when a poorly coded SSH daemon was used; it's now the standard OpenSSH.
    Also, some people still thought that OpenSSH wasted battery, but it doesn't.
    There may still be pages that exist in Cydia explaining that it doesn't.

    or if ur really concerned just toggle it off, no big deal, i turn mine off usually cuz it makes it less vulnerable. Seriously, every ipod touch and iphone has the same SSH password unless u changed it.

    do you turn off your router when you don't use internet?

    cause "seriously" if you don't change the default password it's vulnerable.

    Use the passwd utility to change your password; it's a command line binary.
