    My old Palm Vx (which I dropped one too many times, hence my new t600) had a Preferences option for display/power staying on in the cradle.

    I can't seem to find the same thing on the Treo 600... anybody know where it is or know a utility that does it?

    My loyal T600 buddy beamed me 'OnCradleOn" yesterady and it works great. I'd try a google search, since I couldn't even begin to tell you how to get it...

    I used OnCradleOn on my Prism and it work. It also worked on the 300, but there was some kind of issue (can't remember) you might want to search TC.

    Beware of screen burn-in.

    Hmmm... Interesting read.... Since I only really use the cradle here at the office or when I sync at home (sits near the bed connected to the charger at night), and I'm up and down from my desk all day and not about to leave a T6 sitting around the cube environment, my case might not be too bad. Others are abviously up to them and their use...

    Though I have to agree that doing without for two days to get rid of any burn-in would be very difficult...

    Just use a screen saver to prevent the screen burn issue!

    Does this program work properly with the treo600?

    of course you could always use SplashPhoto from http://www.splashdata.com
    It has a feature to run your fav pics while in the cradle.

    I wasn't aware that LCD screens could have screen burn-in like a phosphor CRT... is this possible?

    I've had my Sony Clie and Compaq iPaq on for days at a time without burn in. Now, the backlight might go out.....

    Funny - I have the exact opposite issue: my 600 started a funky thing the other day - the screen won't go OFF in the cradle (or when any kind of power is applied), and I want it to.
    So - maybe we should trade our devices.
    (no, I'm not running OnCradleOn - heh heh).

    I just got over my fear of screen burn-in with OnCradleOn. When I know device will be in cradle for extended period without needing to see it (e.g. overnight), I'll just press the power button to turn off the device in the cradle. Simple, eh?

    One of the more bizarre products I've seen on a retailer's shelf recently was a paper Daytimer...with a special holder on the inside cover for your Palm Pilot!

    There are a number of people who just use Palm devices as address books and calendars, writing and keeping notes in a loose-leaf binder.

    I agree that holder is silly. I keep a very slim pad-holder in my briefcase for taking extensive written notes, but i rarely use it.

    I was able to install the Program but the screensavers themselves did not load. I kept getting error messages.

    I tried Splashclock and didn't like it. Maybe it was because of the Trial but I didn't like the way it operated. Plus couldn't get my pics to work on it.

    OOPS, this new Grinch screensaver is cool but his finger cursor is getting in the way. -LOL

    Doesn't matter if device is turned on or off, the screen still turns on by itself after about 45 seconds when any external power is applied.

    So, um, no - not that simple (I had tried that way back).

    Yea, I've also noticed that it's not just the cradle... If you hook power up to it, like the included charger cable, it comes on then, too...

    So either you turn off OnCradleOn when you don't want your device on or you don't have the device on in the cradle. Either way, it's back to the drawing board...
