    Does the iPod touch 4th gen closes the Wi-fi when it is in sleep mode? On my iPod touch 1st gen, I have to wait like 30 seconds for the Wi-fi to connect after I slide to unlock, on the iPod touch 4th gen, it is always on before I even slide to unlock.

    iOS4 introduced "persistent wifi" so you remain connected even in sleep mode, which enables iPod touch users to receive things like push notifications and text messages.

    Wouldn't this eat your battery away really fast?

    The ipt4 does have a noticeably longer battery life. The persistent wifi isn't as much of a battery hog as you might think, but I guess that depends in the frequency and number of push notification you have set up. I just toggle mine into airplane mode at night or when I'm not hooked up to a wifi network. SBSettings was great for that. I don't know what it was about the last jailbreak (jailbreakme.com) but it seemed to be quite the battery hog. Not sure if I'll jailbreak 4.1 as I'm enjoying the long battery life.

    persistent wifi ate ~%40 of my battery on my 2g overnight which is part of the reason I'm getting a 4g for the improved battery. iOS4 fail

    Not so much battery, but it does get noticeably warm in my pocket.

    It does. I just learned that unless I am charging this baby at night, I must turn it off (if I want a charged battery for the next day).
