iPod fully reboots after 24 hours

Q: If I leave my iPod off for a day or so, it reboots itself when I turn it on.  Is this normal?  Can I stop this from happening?

A: Yes, this is normal. In order to save battery life, the iPod goes to sleep after 48 hours. This is not entirely “off” though, since it will still respond to a button press and wake up, reboot completely and start at the main menu.
