    iBooks
    apple store
    twitter
    facebook
    fb messenger

    skype
    ooVoo
    iuploader
    textfree
    netflix
    pandora
    jetpack joy ride
    fruit ninja
    angry birds rio

    if ANYBODY can help it would be greatly appreciated.. it happens to my new ipod just like it did with my old ipod but running ios 5.0.1 ... and there are NO apps running in the background whenever it happens

    Is it jailbroken? Are you buying the apps through Apple?

    Just try and restore it. You may have to set up as a new iPod rather than from a backup.

    I did start it as a new iPod when I got it, I even got it replaced and it still happens to me. that's why it has to be a virus in an app or something

    Its not a virus. Apps are sandboxed and Apple would have caught it if anyone tried to be sneaky. Not to mention there are no known viruses for Mac OS or iOS (See GGJ Studios posts for more info).

    Also, despite what Hollywood movies suggests, most viruses are never apparent and work behind the scenes and you never know they are there.

    Sounds like maybe something is corrupt in your iTunes and its getting loaded on to your device.
