iPod Very Little Battery Power...  
This is the first time I ever completely depleted the battery on my iPod to the point where I get no animated icon telling me that battery is low -- and I have to wait about 30 minutes before the unit will actually start responding.

That's because iPods suck. :P

Actually, I'm not complaining - I haven't fully charged the unit since about a month ago. Just stating that it drained down to 'nothing'.

How big is your iPod?

I originally had a 20GB but then returned it and got a 40GB iPod.

You must not use yours very much if you have to power it once a month. I use mine constantly and have to power it every night. And mine has more memory than my laptop. *sigh*

Well, when I'm in the car, I normally hook it up the car charger -- when I'm on the laptop, it's hooked up to the laptop as an external hd...

Just now, I realized I haven't used my iPod for a while since I'm using a 120GB External HD now for my laptop.

Which generation do you have? My 3rd generation iPod died, the battery no longer charges. I've had it for a year and a half. I'm working on getting it replaced, but Apple is taking forever to get it going.

My friend has a 4th generation Mini. She's had it for less than a year and has also died, the battery won't charge.

I believe I have the 4th generation iPod -- I have AppleCare Protection that I purchased with my iPod only because I heard about the horror stories about the battery.

Because the battery is a NiCAD type-battery, it's best to not constantly charge and not allowing the iPod to drain down to low levels. You would reduce the life of the battery that way.
