Battery drained to -0-
My iPod touch 4G battery drained to nothing on its own this evening in my vehicle.
I had charged it earlier today in the vehicle (with an Apple vehicle charger), the unplugged it and kept it in its usual protected out-of-the-sun compartment up front by the driver's seat. This evening, when I got it out to use it, at first nothing happened when I turned it on; then the battery with only a thin red line with a plugin/charge symbol under it appeared briefly, then went off. Plugged it in & charged, everything seems fine.
Being familiar with handheld devices, I know this kind of thing can potentially happen (it happened on my iPod touch 3G six months back); but just to make sure, is there something that I may have inadvertently done to cause this?

I've upgraded to iOS 4.2 in the hopes that the upgrade would fix/tweak whatever is going on. We'll see...

I think it's something random, rather than a battery issue. On rare occasions my Palm Pilot would drain itself completely dead in the middle of the night, and I'd get a blank screen in the morning. If the iPod touch is like other handhelds, when you turn it off, it actually goes into a standby mode, and really isn't completely off; it will perform some sort of function(s) while in that mode. Something apparently can go wrong, and it drains its battery dry if it isn't turned on again for awhile. But I'm not sure, being new to i-products; I was just wondering if there was a user-triggered cause in these devices for that kind of incident.
