    Hey,

    My iPod Touch should hopefully come tommorow (if Apple's Store is correct

    After watching endless videos on youtube, i started to see some people turning their iPods fully off. Atm, i currently use a clickwheel iPod and as i'm sure you know you hold down the play button till it goes to sleep.

    I wanted to check as i can't find any conformation anywhere, that by just pressing the sleep/wake button and putting it into sleep wont drain the battery and works in the same way it works on clickwheel iPods.

    I would be shocked if Apple made you go through the boot up proccess EVERY time.

    Thanks, Mike

    You can either put it on standby or completly shut it down. When on standby it doesn't use a lot of battery though. If you turn it completly off then it doesn't use any battery and you have to wait for it to boot up.

    It also takes a lot of power to boot the device on, so it's usually better to just keep it in standby.
