I've called Apple support on this before. They told me to make sure that the Ipod is set for Manually manage music in the Ipod settings of ITunes. You should restore all software in your IPod to factory settings before doing this.

<p>Keep your iPod touch battery health is important to ensure
the long life of your device. There are two factors to consider when learning
how to get the battery in an iPod touch sharply: the life of the battery and a
battery. Battery refers to the time that the battery remains charged. Battery
life refers to the amount of time you can use the battery before it requires
replacement. If you are concerned about the overall performance of your iPod
battery, you should focus on increasing the battery life. <br />
<p>1. Keep your iPod at room temperature. Although an iPod
touch can be stored anywhere from -4 degrees F to 113 degrees F, it is better
to keep it at room temperature, which is 73 degrees Celsius <br />
<p>2. Keep updating your iPod software using iTunes. Not only
new software updates for the iPod touch, they also include updates to the
firmware of the device that the battery life of the device can improve. <br />
<p>3. Pass a minimum of one charge cycle per month. You have a
full charge cycle by fully charging the battery, use the device until the
battery is empty and then fully charge the device. Charges are important

For details on this program go to:
Or, you could try to replace the battery pack. The internal battery is generally NOT considered to be user replaceable and I would not recommend attempting it unless you have some experience and are comfortable repairing delicate electronic devices. Taking apart and working on an MP3 plauer is not for the inexperienced or faint of heart. If you do have the requisite know how you can find several companies selling aftermarket battery kits for the iPod just by browsing around on the web.
