Try closing anything you're using in the background. If you double click the home button you'll see the screen move up and the apps line up at the bottom. Scroll all the way to the end of the list. Starting from there, hold down one of the apps (as if it were on the home page and you were going to move it) and just start closing apps. This wont delete them, but it will completely close this. Get in a habit of doing this once a day or so and you're ipod will always be moving cleanly.
