    ok i have been going to sleep around 2:30 am average since i got the Treo 650. I have to say this.. something bad happens to my Treo between 2:30AM and 9AM. I have awoken to a dead, or rapidly flickering treo 3 times so far. i have no backups scheduled and am wondering what could cause such weirdness. any opinions?

    Do you have snappermail installed with auto-file-to-sdcard option on?

    How about any wake-up alarms?

    Wow! I hope the 650 is not possessed. Do we need an exorcist? I thought the 600 was bad, between the waking itself up at 3:30 am and hanging up on you while you're on a call when you close the car door.

    Ooh, speaking of weird Treo's at night, anyone notice yet if the Treo650 does the same weird "turn-on-the-light-for-no-reason" thing the Treo600 does at 3:30AM?

    I'm not having that problem, although, mine does grow out some thick hair and long teeth and then make howling sounds toward the full moon... Anyone else experience that?

    So some people aren't having their 650's turn on by themselves at night? Man it would be great if I didn't have to cover my phone up or lay it face down anymore!
    Go here if you're tired of being .
    It'll be fun.

    Seriously. Does anyone know why the Treo turns on by itself at 3:30am. I have to turn mine face down at night, and sometimes the light is still bright enough to wake me up. It literally happens to me every night (Treo 600).

    It's calling home.

    It can't "call home". I turn the wireless mode off at night.

    When the Treo lights up at 2:30 or 3:30am, it is trying to sync with the network time server. If this bugs you, turn it off in the date and time prefs and use a utility like time copy.

    uH . why does my treo randomly shut off completely.
    No flashing green light, no random reset.. just dead. gone. off.
    after that it goes into a reset loop of epileptic proportions and it always does it just as im thinking i need to make a call not actually dialing.. twice it has happened as i silently breathed a sigh of relief that my phone was finally stable and always it happens shortly before or on my way to work right before i get busy. i have nothing scheduled to occur during this time either.

    this is pathetic people. this is pathetic.

    perhaps to taunt me, as i hit post the treo reset itself but this time instead of its seizure inducing keyboard flicker.. it has a slow deliberate ON OFF ON OFF that they keyboard is doing and get this... each time the keyboard turns on a 2 pixel solid black line flashes on and off with the keyboard across the top of my screen .

    as if to say.. you are a tool. go get a regular cell phone.

    now as i posted this i thought id reset it for the 10 time this morning and now suddenly, its stable, even though i reset it the same and usually after i stabilize its fine the rest of the day.

    i think i know why this is. our Treo 650 is Jeff Hawkins experiment on intelligence and ai.. The treo 650 is a baby and we must coax it and feed it to appease it and then it will be ok for a while till it starts crying and fussing and crapping itself again. damn you Hawkins!

    wahili, sounds like your unit is hosed - I'd try to get Palm or Sprint to replace it...sux cause I know you were really looking forward to the 650 (like we all were). Hope things straighten out for you soon...

    Having exactly the same problem: random shut down over night, can only get it to turn on by doing a soft reset.

    I've got

    Outlook patch
    Snappermail
    Bunch of games
    Some ringtones from my old 600
    Everything else is standard

    Mine turns on sometimes, and even beeps. I look at it and its on the home screen. Im not sure, but it could be versamail. It will also reset itself and turn the phone on after the reset.
