    I just got my Treo yesterday - this little thing surely is overwhelming to me!!

    One question that I have... how do you turn the daggone thing OFF? I can turn the phone part off, but how do you turn the entire unit all the way off? Am I missing something here??

    Tapping the red Phone button should turn off the screen...that's as "off" as it gets.

    That's pretty funny. I wondered the same thing when I got my first pdaphone which was my first pda. I read the manual for almost a hour trying to figure out how to turn it off.

    Ya, if the radio is off and the screen is off,,,, its off

    well, it's off but it's not off - it's obviously staying "on" enough to look for alarms, be aware of incoming phone calls and such, etc... So off isn't totally off, unless you yank the battery out.

    Yep, the only way to get it 100% off is to remove the battery.

    Welcome! Do not be overwhelmed! Think it as an adventure, take as many steps as you wish each day. I have had mine for 10 months now -- and I am still exploring.

    I was reading over at mytreo.net about some new devices that turn off, completely off, I think they were PPCs. I cant find the thread now.

    I have had PDAs for going on 10 years now and none of them turned totally off. This is to allow alarms and timing functions to run in the background and "alarm" at the correct time.

    A PDA (Palm or PPC) that can turn off would obviously conserve battery power but would disable any set alarm functions. As long as the user is aware of this, it could be a nice power saving "option." But then again, if the power is off and the "clock" is not running -- how would the PDA know what time it was when it was turned "on"? (Network time for smartphones, but what about PDAs?)

    Cheers, Perry.

    True, but I'm sure there will always be the traditional off along with the "totally" off feature. I welcome the feature since I often remove the battery at night to ensure a full charge in the morning.
