    I've looked and looked but was unable to find a thread about this here.

    What are known ways to make the unit reset itself while it's on (without taking out the battery )? List any known ways of doing it, please. I'm sure many will benefit from reading the experiences.

    Zlauncher provides a "soft reset" option.

    There are a number of 3rd-party apps that will allow you to do a deliberate soft reset (they only work if your Treo isn't frozen, of course). There's an app called SoftReset, and Launcher X (and I'm sure most of the other launchers) has a function to do this, as does LightwavPro 2.2. I'm sure there are many others.

    The pop-up launchers, Hi-Launcher and Launch Anywhere, have options to add a soft reset to the menus.

    I can't think of any ways to get a soft reset other than a 3rd party app that gives you the option. Other than software conflicts or bugs of course. For example, using FindHack in the Phone application on a 680 causes a reset. The developer is aware of the bug. I'm sure there are others like this.

    You can install Bigclock, and then hit the menu key. That is a bug with the 680 that works nicely if you want to reset.

    Most 3rd party launchers have this option.

    Just turn it on and wait a while.

    I'm sorry - I was not specific enough with my post.

    With the Treo the way it is with no 3rd party apps, what are some ways to purposefully make it crash when it actually shouldn't?

    that seems like a slightly unusual request - any reason why you want to do this or know this?. Not sure I know of any ways, apart from mdavis' recommendation, but you may have to wait a while? You could try immersing it in water.

    Mine's quite stable, even with 3rd party apps present. I can't think of any way to actually make it reset.

    Why do you want your Treo to reset? To clear the cache?

    A must-have program, Uninstall Manager, also has the option to soft reset.

    Mine's stable too, but I have several third party apps that, if the right (wrong?) steps are followed, will almost consistently cause a reset. As only one example, Hourly X Cast will normally cause a reset if I change the location AND the radar site at the same time, and sometimes even at different times.

    But in fact this is a bit more stable than the 650, and I don't think there is anything inherent in the 680 that will predictably cause a reset natively.

    Hey, whats up with you mdavis. I saw you had posted, clicked on it with excited anticipation, expecting another pithy reference to Pareto, a grumble about having only achieved 80% happiness last night, or similar. Are you having a bad day?

    What's a bad day? I've got my 680 still plugged into the wall. Plus, I made it clear that was only a weekend experiment. It didn't go well.

    Actually, I got the impression the weekend expt was you being 'semi' positive, or at least trying to embrace the negatives. Now you sound disturbingly neutral - I hope your experiment hasn't caused permanent damage.

    I remember that I posted the trick somewhere. It works on other palm devices, too (at least: T5, TX, LifeDrive, Treo 600, 650, 680, 700p)

    On the Hotsync screen; hold the "UP" button, then tap on the lower right corner. Badha bhum! It's reset.
