I had a 3rd generation iPod Touch that would hold a charge for a long time until suddenly (just before the warranty ran out) it would no longer hold the charge.  I could fully charge it and leave it sit unused for about 3 days and it would be dead.  After much tech support from Apple (we tried restoring original settings, removing all apps, etc., etc., etc.), they sent me a replacement.  The replacement has had the same issue since day 1.  I have now been experimenting with other settings and it seemed to hold the charge a little better when the wifi was turned off, but I always used to leave the wifi on and it didn't drain the battery at all.  What is going on??

    The recent iOSs for iPods allow the iPod to do more when the iPod is asleep.  I just leave my Ipod in airplane mode when I am not using it.  My 4G go excellent batter life with the original iOS (4.1 I think).  I could just let it sleep with wifi one.  However, wtih the resent iOSs, the batteyr would almost completly drain overnight.
