Are these normal behaviors?

    Hello. I have the iPod Touch 64GB Fall 2009 model. Over the past few months, I have encountered the following problems sometimes. I wonder if
    these are normal as I am trying to decide whether or not to get AppleCare.

    1. When the battery was running low, sometimes the IPT behaved strangely.
    For example, responses from the device became sluggish when making
    options on the touch screen. It was like the device was being run as a
    virtual machine under emulation.

    2. Sometimes the device indicated that there was about half the power left.
    Then, suddenly the battery icon turned red to indicate that power was
    going to run out.

    3. Sometimes the device indicated that the battery was going to run out
    soon but then later it indicated that there were still enough power
    (i.e. the battery icon turned from red green in less than a minute).

    4. Sometimes all the application icons are shaking. Don't know what was
    going on...

    Thanks.

    The battery display issues are fairly normal. Have you gone through Apple's tips on how to calibrate the battery? That should reduce the amount of wonkiness that you're experiencing. Battery Doctor Pro is a great app for learning how to calibrate your battery and keep it in good shape.

    As to the icons shaking, that's because you held and icon down for long enough. When they're shaking, you can reorganize the icons so that you can put them anywhere you want (or click the X to delete third-party apps). This is quite normal, just hit the home button to cancel out.

    The one that's weird is the Touch running slow on low battery. I haven't experienced that one, and I can't think of a normal reason why you would.

    Thanks for the reply. By Apple's tips, do you mean this:
    http://www.apple.com/batteries/notebooks.html
    It does not say exactly how to do it.

    As for the Touch running very very slow on low battery,
    it happened about 1-2 times only. Let's see if other users
    have had this problem...
