    i just have a quick question about putting the ipod to sleep. whenever i wake it back up mail has messages updated so I was wondering if the ipod automatically does this after it wakes up and connects back to the network or if for some reason the wifi stays on when it's supposed to be sleeping

    hmmmm, my mail app does not check mail til I open the application.....but to sorta answer you, I have read consistently that your wifi stays active during sleep, people have been manually turning it off to save battery life.

    There is a setting in mail to turn off fetching new mail over wifi while it's "sleeping". I'm not sure where as I don't own one presently, I just remember reading a thread about it.

    In Prefs, you can choose to have the mail program check every X minutes, or do it manually.
