    Hello,
    Ever since I got my Treo 600, it has not been able to turn itself off
    when it is charging. Even though, I have the setting "turn off after 1
    minute", it stays on all night when I have it plugged in and charging!
    It will NOT turn off when it's plugged in. I don't know if some
    setting transfered over from my Sony Clie when I first did a sync to
    tranfer the data over from my Clie to the Treo.

    Is there a way to fix this? If not will this hurt the Treo if the
    screen stays on overnight when charging?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Jeff, I'm not at all familiar with your model, nor do I understand why your
    phone won't shut off. What happens when you shut down the phone and then
    plug it in the charger? Will it stay off?

    One more thing, all of the new cell phones have a setting under the Display
    settings on how long to have the backlight on. How long is yours set for?

    Re: Treo 600 - not turning off

    Have you tried a soft reset?

    Can you turn it off when not in the charger?

    Waitasec, you mean that when you press the display-off button (the far
    right-hand button to the right of the navigation ring) the display
    doesn't turn off?

    Re: Treo 600 - not turning off

    I have the setting that the display is suppose to turn off after 1
    minute. When I am charging the phone and press the display-off
    button; the display will stay off for about 1 minute and stay on while
    I have it charging. I tried a soft rest, didn't work. I think a hard
    rest may work but when I do that I seem to lose all of my todo's. Any
    suggestions?

    Thanks

    Hard reset won't do any good. My Treo 600 does this as well. Very
    annoying...

    Very odd. Mine does NOT do this. If it's on the charger/synch cable,
    and I press the display button, the display goes off and stays off.

    I don't suppose the recent firmware upgrade has any effect on this, does
    it? I didn't see any behavior change between the "before" and "after"
    firmware upgrade situations.

    Re: Treo 600 - not turning off

    Mine did this at one time - can't recall which program was causing it
    (since I try so many-then discard them)

    However thought it was one of the Treo Add on programs that had to
    constantly check the status (network ?), so it had to wake up the Palm
    to do so.

    So, there is no resolution to this in the thread - anyone else out
    there know about this? I experience the same problem. To clarify -
    if the screen is off when I put it on the cradle, it stays off. If I
    press the screen off button (to the right) while it is on the cradle,
    it goes off and stays off. If it is NOT on the cradle and an alert
    comes up, it turns off in one minute. These examples all make sense.

    Here's the problem, though...

    If it is on the cradle (charger) and an alert comes up, the screen
    will stay on indefinitely. I don't want to be forced to manually turn
    off the screen each time this occurs. This is frustrating, bad for
    the screen and can be disturbing when it occurs overnight (my cradle
    is close enough to bed to be rather bright in the dark).

    Any help?

    - Jerry

    No really good fix, but one workaround is if the alerts are wireless
    alerts you might consider turning off wireless overnight.
