    What happens when you try? Error messages? Apple says you can:


    Backup overview

    iCloud automatically backs up the most important data on your iOS 5 device. Once you have enabled Backup on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch in Settings > iCloud > Backup & Storage, it will run on a daily basis as long as your device:

    • is connected to Internet over Wi-Fi
    • is connected to a power source
    • has the screen locked

    You can also back up manually whenever your device is connected to Internet over Wi-Fi by choosing Back Up Nowfrom Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup.

    When ever I try to backup to my computer and then press apply it defaults back to I-cloud.

    Try going to the Summary pane for the iPod in iTunes and uncheck the synce via wifi box. The backup.  That works for me.
