I was curious whether it is possible to manipulate software of things like my MP3-Player. There are things that - if changed or even switched off - would save much energy for it.

Is it possible?

Manipulating is a little different to rewriting. You can manipulate something by knowing where say a certain graphic is within the firmware of your iPod and changing it.

But this sounds like it would require rewriting, which requires the source code, or a magical method of decompiling.

Best you could probably do is extract the machine code and convert it to ASM, the modify it and recompile it, or better yet use a Hex Editor, neither are particualy efficient or safe. Either way its normally illegal to modify or decompile software.
