    Every time I leave the wifi on and wake up in the morning I have one "bar" of battery left. Even going to sleep fully charged.

    I thought I got a dud, so I exchanged it at the Apple store. But the new one has the same problem, even with almost no app loaded. Is Facetime the culprit?

    Do I have to turn off the wifi when I sleep? My sister's 2nd gen Touch upgraded to 4.x firmware doesn't have the problem so I think it could be the facetime causing it.

    Its a bug that is effecting most if not all of the 4G iPod Touches.

    This is an issue with certain apps, like skype if you stay signed on. I lose about 5% battery overnight and have had mine since the day thwe were released.

    Facetime does not cause this. Define "almost" no apps loaded.

    Must only affect some people. I leave WiFi on all night and my battery is just as I left it. You are on 4.2, correct?

    It's normal.

    Any iTouch upgraded to 4.2.1, even the 2nd and 3rd gens are having this problem. Facetime could be it, but I doubt it because its even happening to the lower gens.
