    If your ipod has energy saving function disabled with Johntool and you are running a web application like Appolo then it would recieve data for sure. You question is somewhat unclear though

    Only if you have ghosts who like to surf at night when you sleep (or email accounts on the ipod with checking enabled)

    But no matter what trickle of data the ipod might (not likely) use, it would hardly be enough to notice.

    Still, for your battery's sake, you should turn off wifi when you sleep it.

    I have another question regarding WiFi usage while sleeping. Normally, if WiFi is on when you put it to sleep, WiFi turns off automatically after about 30 seconds of inactivity.

    But, if Mail is set to check at a certain interval, will WiFi stay on constantly? Or will WiFi turn on briefly to check for mail, and then turn back off after 30 seconds of inactivity?
