Newer iPods/iPhones are not compatible with some older cables, and frequently won't charge (even with Apple equipment).
As for sleep mode, I believe they sense when power is disrupted, even if they are not charging, and will go to sleep. You might try adjusting the Auto Lock or Screen Lock settings on the pod/phone.
Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.
