New iPod Touch user with some questions.

1. Does pressing the home button close the app that's currently running, like during a game, or does it continue to run in the background?

2. If I press the sleep button while playing a game, does the iPod consume more battery due to an app is still running?

1. No, it doesn't close the app. It basically pauses it. If you are updated to the 4.3 ios, then you can double click the home button and it will bring up all the running apps on the bottom of the ipod and you can close them out from there.

2. More than likely.

1) It depends on the quality of the app, I have a couple of games that continue running for some reason...

2) Yes, I have run apps in the background by accident and it has consumed much more batter.
