When the lid of my Treo 300 is closed, it turns itself off after 30 seconds. This in spite of the fact that my Auto-Off preference is set to 2 minutes. When the lid is open, it Auto-Off's after the expected 2 minutes. Is this normal? It makes it difficult to read e-books; either I have to read with the lid open, or I have to be ready to hit the power button whenever a page takes me more than 30 seconds.

If this is normal, does anyone know of a work-around?

TIA --
