    Ok, so Jason Loveman, the original creator of KeepOff for the Treo 600 was very kind to provide me with the source code so that I could attempt to modify it to work on the Treo 650. For those of you who didn't use the original, it was BY FAR the best program to keep my Treo 600 from turning on inadvertantly or answering a phone call when it it's case. I haven't found a program for the 650 that even comes close. The ONLY button on my phone that would turn it on was the power button on top. I believe the code just needs to be modified to remap the power button to the new position. I installed the old version on my 650 and not a single button would wake it up. That's a good sign to me!! (other than I had to reset my phone, but it means the code is still good!!)

    I would like to work with a developer who could guide me or I'm looking for a developer who would be willing to modify the code to work on the Treo 650. The only stipulation from Jason is that this code not be used for profit. He wants to keep the program freeware. This would be a killer app on the Treo 650!!! I really hope someone remembers this program and is willing to help!! I look forward to the replies!!!

    ask Jeff Gibson or marc blanc to see if he can take a quick look at this. It doesn't "seem" like it would be much to change for someone who knows the way the treo's map keys. I'd really like this.

    I use KeepOff 1.5 Beta, it works perfectly. I use the below configuration. Not sure what's up with your version.

    [_] Lock App Buttons
    [X] Lock D-PAD Center
    [X] Enable

    I used 1.5b also. I would like to see it modified slightly so that I can disable the hardware buttons individually. The buttons on my 600 were stiffer but I still wanted to disable them. Now that I lost the top power button, I have to be more selective in what I allow to wake up my 650. I despise the current keyguard. I'd like to be able to disable individual buttons.

    Makes sense, I'd like to see this as well. Not sure if you can limp through with my configuration in the interim; I hate KeyGuard.

    I'd be willing to take a look at it, if you'd like.

    I'd love to see a 650 specific version too.

    I've emailed the source code to a couple of people. Still waiting to see if anyone has the skills and time to dig into the code. Unfortunately for me, I don't!!! Just a power user with a wish!! If anyone is willing to take a crack at it, let me know!!!

    I was working on it but my open source work in general has been sidetracked by school work. Hopefully I can look at it again within a few weeks.
