I've had some problems with low battery life after the 2.0 upgrade. 2.0.1 helped some, but there's still (at least) one battery related problem. I have location and push turned off, but WiFi on. Battery life is always decent to good except in this case:

When I connect an external charger (or connect the touch to my car) and then disconnect it my touch does not recognize that the charger has been disconnected. The unlock screen shows the battery loading icon and the battery icon top left shows the touch being connected to power (which it isn't). The charger is Apple's own firewire charger for a 4G iPod. This never happened with the 1.1.1-1.1.4 firmware (I've tried them all). With 2.0 and 2.0.1 it happens every time.

Once the iPod is stuck in this mode the battery drains very quickly. I can't get it out of this mode by rebooting, resetting, or even reflashing the firmware. The only way is to wait for the battery to go dead and then charge the iPod up again.

I do not see this problem when charging it through USB on my MacBook.

Is anybody else seeing this? Have you found a workaround?
