It's very simple really, but Apple doesn't seem to have figured this out. Email is very important to me, I need to know ASAP when and/or if someone has sent me an email. I currently use the Touch's Mail app to monitor mail on the go. The problem is that the the ipod tends to go to sleep, and rather quickly at that. This means that I cannot just check email at a glance, I have to wake it up, re-connect to the network and the get mail. When you want to check in 15 minute intervals, this gets kinda annoying. What I want my touch to do is to NOT go to sleep, and instead have only the display go to sleep after a certain amount of time (like my MacBook), so that it maintains network connectivity and checks for email periodically itself. Then I want it to alert me to new mail by making some sort of noise (I know the current mail app does this). If the iPod goes to sleep, I would want it to wake up when/if it receives new mail, and make noise to tell me. Is there anyway I can get this to work?
