Its possible to block turning off the iPhone/iPod or iPhone? For example, in case of loss, theft? The point is that the thief could not turn off the iPhone, so I could find iPhone through Find my iPhone always..

Nope, you can't prevent someone turning the phone off.

If it's jailbroken, you can install Powerguard or NoPowerDown.



Even devices locked with TouchID can be turned off without unlocking. Even if you could restrict it, the device would eventually run the battery dead.
