    Can someone explain the way the touch works in terms of conserving a charge? Last night I fell asleep while listening to a podcast - the battery was almost fully charged when I started playing it. When I woke this morning it was considerably depleted. Do I have to manually turn the thing off to stop it draining the battery?

    Yes, if you don't stop playing your media the device continues to play.

    You must pause your media to allow the device to sleep. Otherwise it just shuts off the screen.

    So, after I hit the pause button, it stops playing my music, I can just click the sleep button once, it turns off the screen, and that's all I need to do? I haven't ever completely powered off my ipod touch.

    Or if your ipot hangs up/crashes hold both buttons until the power shuts off.

    So if I'm asleep it'll just keep draining the power? That's really annoying!

    the way i think of it is like a laptop: close the lid and it goes to sleep, yet it still drains a little battery, but barely. actually turning it off uses no battery power at all.

    I realized that when I unplug the headphones the device shuts off completely, because then I plug them again and there is no sound at all. Does that means the iPodT is off?!?!?!

    Yeah I realise that. My problem is that from time to time I'll fall asleep while it's playing something. On my Nano that wasn't a problem - it seemed to conserve all the remaining battery power. When it happened the other night with the touch I lost about 1/3rd of the charge
