    It starts looking like lots of people have this specific reset problem. Does anyone know anything more about it? Any solution?
    In my case the 650 looses all the prefs and programs registrations each time it resets. It's unusable as it is now. Initially I replaced it straight away thinking it mught have been a hardware prob, but it appears to be something else, but what?!

    P.S.
    I tried a few OS versions as well.

    I was having these sorts of issues just after beginning to use UDMH (Unlimited Dynamic Memory Hack). It would suddenly blow into a soft reset, and when it came up the unsaved and saved preferences are gone, gone gone along with several applications.

    Fortunately my nightly Backupman image has most or enough of the data to recover close to perfect, but it's a serious flaw.

    I'd suggest checking for programs like UDMH or other software that has severe effects on memory manipulation.
    Treo 755s in good condition available on ebay for $50-$75. No need to pay for insurance or buy a Pre.

    Never heard of UDMH b4. Checked with Super Utility- no such thing on my 650. What "other software that has severe effects on memory manipulation" would you have in mind? Could it be for instance WaveEdit Pro, ehich records audio to ROM first for editing before it's saved to SD? It wasn't run when the crashes occur, but maybe it's database... Anyway, I uninstalled it now (quite an old prog, hasn't beeb updated for ages). It was my favourite sound recording and editing prog. It's ironic, I bought it long ago for Treo 600, but could not use it due to the 320x320 limitation. Now that I have 650 it might be not compatible... I'll keep testing.

    "A crash occured on 12/13/05 at 8:20 while running "Tasks":
    Preferences.c, Line:263, Pref DB Open Error"

    Now, if I invoke the soft reset I loose all the prefs and regs as well. This is horrendous!

    I just can't believe such thing is released to the market. How am I supposed to use it if it can't work for longer than an hour at best?

    I would suggest that you read through the rather long thread around here on Resco Locker; the proper use of that product has eliminated preference-losing resets for quite a few users.

    Wow, I am trully impressed and grateful to the makers of Resco Locker.
    It's been now over 25 hours without a reset. What a change. There is the life at the end of a tunnel!
    I played with Bhajis Loops, recording own samples, using FX etc, usual calling, Acid Image, a few games, syncing, and it's stable. What a change after every few minutes resets loosing database.
    DBCache set to auto on, clear type sync, app stop and ctrl tap unchecked, free< 4M, max< 0, clear et softreset and ask checked, no apps added.
    rlock apps as follows:
    BackupMan
    Butler
    Initiate
    PhoneTechnician
    Ringo (superb!)
    SoundAdvice
    TideTool
    EaveEditPro

    The rest are fairly recently updated so I thought I didn't need them locked. Butler and Technician, however, as a good meassure, because they run in background.

    Thanks to all who pointed me in the right direction (not many...), and most importantly big thanks to the Resco Guys- you made my Treo operational for the first time.

    The good omen continues. I like my Treo more and more (should maybe make a t-shirt "I like my Treo"). I run Bhajis Loops having 10 tracks of 44.1 kHz 16 bit audio samples playing together with a few FX and filters. Smoothie! I overloaded the processor adding more and, appart from the wait until a response, NO CRASH! Better then my PC I would never have thought The Treo can be that stable. All thanks to a little utility. Why the heck Palm haven't thought of it themselves!?
