    I had my ipod at full battery yesturday then this morning it was low and it wasn't on, but the battery ran out. Do you know why an ipod may be doing something like this?

    What kind of iPod do you have and how long does a full battery charge usually last?

    Is it possible that it was accidentally playing through the night and drained by the morning?

    I'd echo soberbrain's questions. What kind of iPod (some of them have had battery "issues") do you have? How long is a standard battery charge? How old is the iPod? I'd suggest trying to charge it up (fully) and then see what happens. You can then time how long the battery actually lasts. It may simply have been left on all night unknowingly; however, if after that, you cannot switch it on/off, or the battery drains precipitately, you may have a more serious battery problem.

    Twice, an iPod of mine died (battery issues, with both of them) and, as they were still under warranty, both were replaced without any difficulty (which was one of the reasons I became a switcher). Let us know what happens; good luck with it, cheers.

    I have an ipod classic and it take hours for it to go out if I didn't make it do anything to purposely make it go down.

    It also acts like it is fullky charged like it has the plug sign on the battery like when it does when it is fully charged but it isn't plugged in could it be relying on more energy and it is making the ipod go out?
