    The whole take the battery out thing is kind of a pain especially if you have a case on. Is there any chance there will ever be a small software app that could do a soft reset or is the battery off the only way?

    There is, and someone will likely post it here. I personally use Initiate, which has a built in reset function.

    ZLauncher, mReset etc...but in most cases when you need a soft reset the Treo is frozen anyway so an app won't help

    Good point. Are there any apps. that can automatically reset the Treo even if it's frozen?

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say no -- if the treo is frozen, it can't execute code, including reset requests. The button reset under the battery cover only works because it interrupts the power supply.

    You don't need any kind of software to make palm (aka 680) reset (as long as the device is not FREEZE)

    Simply go to hotsync screen, hold the up button (5-way navigator) then tap on the lower right corner.

    As stated above, CrashPro works even when the screen is frozen...its the only one that I know that does.
