    For no reason my Treo's been draining the heck out of my battery.

    When I hit the end button it should turn off the lights of the Treo and go into lock mode. But now when I hit the end button I have to hold the power button down for a second and then the keyboard and screen lights go off but then the screen comes back on about 2 seconds after that and never turns off! And it stays on thus buring my battery.

    Has this ever happened to anyone?

    I even went into the preferences and messed with the sleep settings and that doesn't help. Is my Treo broke or is there something I can do?

    Sync and do a hard reset.

    When you say 'hard reset' do you mean pull out the battery?

    I have already done that and it didn't work but I haven't synced first and then done that... do you think syncing will help?

    No. RTM for "hard reset." I think you hold down the red key while pressing the reset button; wait for the circular Palm logo and release the red button. You will be asked if you want to erase all data. Press up on the 5-way button to say "yes." Now sync again.

    Your problem is more likely caused by third-party software than hardware. The purpose of a hard reset is to get rid of all such software and return the device to default state. Note that a hard reset is like re-installing Windows; it is destructive. If you decide to re-install the third-party apps, do so one at a time and test after each one. When the device fails in the same way, you will know which one caused the problem.
