    I found out something just yesterday.

    If you are playing MP3s on your Mogul and using Stereo Bluetooth then you
    can tap the power button on your phone to shut the screen off and it will
    keep playing your MP3s through the Stereo Bluetooth.

    Your battery will easily last all day with the screen off and you won't have
    to carry a seperate MP3 player with you. Plus, once you tap the power
    button on your phone, if you accidentally tap one of the other buttons
    nothing will happen so that is an added feature.

    As for loading MP3s on your phone. Put the MP3s or WMAs on the Storage Card
    then start the Media Player. Add those to your Library with
    Menu->Library->Menu->Update Library.

    When you play your MP3s with Media Player just use Menu->Library then make
    your selection.

    BTW the Stereo Bluetooth I use is the Motorola S705 SoundPilot and if the
    battery is low, it will let you "operate while charging cord is plugged in."

    Oops, I just found out that the above only works for MP3s that have a video
    associated with them.

    If they are just plain audio MP3s then the Media Player will pause as soon
    as you press the power button regardless if you are using Stereo Bluetooth
    or not.

    Sorry and Damn, I was hoping I could part with my MP3 player.

    You still might be able to- I found this Googling:

    http://www.freewareppc.com/utilities...pocketpc.shtml

    It's a screen blanking program that disables the display until you hit two
    particular keys simultaneously- (whatever your device consides #1 and #4-
    you can check the "Buttons" applet in "Settings" to find out which those
    are.)

    Good luck!

    I found out something just today that I can thank Smartphone & Pocket PC
    for pointing me in the right direction.

    On page 82 of the Feb/Mar 2008 magazine it has a Section on Tips and Tricks
    and in that Section it has something labeled "Save power while playing
    music: Turn off the screen"

    It points out the Media Player has a way you can assign a button to turn the
    screen off. It is under Menu->Options->Buttons->"Toggle Screen"

    After some testing I found two buttons that are not yet assigned by Windows
    Media Player and they are "Hold up" and "Hold down."

    I assigned "Hold down" to turn the screen off and now I can save power when
    listening to MP3s.

    Thanks Smartphone & Pocket PC
