    The Software update for my Cingular Treo 650 is great. But now, after I've made or received a phone call the auto-off timer resets to 30 seconds to save power. I'd like to leave it at 15 minutes all the time.

    Peter,

    This is a well known issue with the Cingular update (at least here on Treocentral).

    StopDim from GoTreoSoftware corrects the behavior.

    Thank you Scotty,
    StopDim keeps the Auto-off set to where I set it in Preferences. (Preferences>Power>Auto-off after>30sec,1 min,2min,or 3min) .
    However, before updating to the firmware I used "AlwaysOn" to set my Treo for 15 minutes. (Preferencec only goes up to 3 minutes) StopDim won't work with AlwaysOn.
    Is there any way to keep my Treo turned on for 15 minutes? Or do I have to use ScheduleCare/ProfileCare?

    I've been using the AutoOff application to combat the 30 second "feature". You can customize the amount of the delay. I have mine set to 4 minutes (240 seconds).

    Everyone,

    I am using profile care and schedule care trial versions, and Always on, stop dim, and auto off, two things happen; my phone still resets to 30 seconds after being on a call, and if I have to do a soft reset, my phone still goes back to 30 seconds.

    Is there a program that no matter what my phone will stay on for an hour and the settings will survive a soft reset?

    Thanks,

    Yes. AutoOff. Ver 1.3 is still free. Ver 1.4 is $2.99
