    Like many others I have to deal with the problems of NVFS Cache dropping to low levels and interfering with programs that need more than is available at that moment.

    The real problem is when my backupman trys to do a back up at 3am (when I am sleeping and cant manually interfere) and it doesnt work cause the cache is to low.

    Is there a program that I can set and schedule a soft reset. This way the phone would be set to reset before the backup and it would clear the cache allowing for the backup to work.

    I know of and have utilities that can manually do this (without removing the back cover) or automatically turn the unit back on after a reset and even run a program afterwards.

    Ideally the utility would >cause soft reset> turn unit back on > and then run a program at a scheduled time.

    Correction: REALLY IDEALLY would be for palmone to finally release a fix that addresses these cache memory issues (and any other issues) so that we dont need fixes and utilities and hours of researching the threads for 'work arounds' .

    I have been using the freeware program LookAtMe to schedule the freeware app Mreset to launch and automatically soft reset my Treo both before and after I have my scheduled backup run using BackupMan. BackupMan seems to eliminate available NVFS cache, causing slowdowns and other problems, particularly playing movies, and using the combination of LookAtMe and Mreset has made this a non-issue for me. Oh, I also have PowerUp set to "Turn phone on after reset", so my phone will always stay on the way I like it. PowerUp is freeware if you're just using it to start up the phone after a reset and not using any of its other features. Hope this helps ya...

    Thanks Jeff. Shortly after I posted (before you replied) I downloaded your program. I am going through it now (very feature filled ) and will let you know what I think. Thanks again.

    Thx Jeff, btw I have been on treo central for over a year and a half now and have always noticed your strong participation regardless if it was your product or not, it's much appreciated, thx again .

    Here's a question.
    I would like to automatically run a program (my Goodlink software needs to be initialized after a reset) automatically. I don't see that option. Maybe I missed it or maybe you haven't included it yet and you plan on adding it into a future release (hint hint )

    I was wondering the same. Here's what I found:

    Mreset http://www.freewarepalm.com/utilities/mreset.shtml

    Lookatme http://www.tucows.com/preview/34370

    Powerup http://mytreo.net/downloads/details-418.html?PowerUp

    Hope that helps.

    Is this why some apps on the 650 required the UDMH application? Was it because the cache was actually not being flushed properly (rather than it being too small)?

    Yes. I have not tried that app yet (been hesitant) but it may be next.
