    I think it must be the bluetooth switching that is causing the hangup. When I turn on the treo in the morning, I enter my password, and it just sits there, without the phone or bluetooth on. I think it does set the screen brightness though. Maybe a future version could have the master profile check to see whether everything is as it should be a certain interval (30 sec. or a minute) after power on?

    My master profile has phone, bluetooth and IR on, sets some volumes and display brightness, and allows nested profiles. My overnight profile turns off the radios and IR, and lowers the brightness, and no nested profiles.

    The way I am thinking I can deal with this is to have my overnight be manual and timed, so I can turn it off after I enter my password in the morning. One more thing to remember to do, but it is easier than going into the bluetooth panel to turn it on.

    I suspected that might be the case since Bluetooth and HotSync are the only ways I know of that the Security app and ProfileCare might interact. However, I think only the BT radio control should get hung. I haven't tested that exact setup, but would expect that the phone radio and other settings should happen even with the Treo locked since they don't issue any UI commands.

    Your approach would definitely work, but I have another idea for you to consider. Jeff has created a tremendously useful app with a great deal of power and flexibility to make the Treo behave the way you want it to when you want it to. In particular, the nested profiles capability might be particularly useful here.

    If you had a separate timed "BT on" profile that ran "on top of" the master profile but started after the time you typically unlock the Treo, it wouldn't get stuck waiting for the unlock to happen. Your master profile sounds very much like my Day profile except that I don't have BT on (to save battery life). My Day profile starts at 6:00a. At 7:00a my "BT on" profile kicks in for my morning commute. My Treo is almost always unlocked by then, so it runs automatically. You could either have the "BT on" profile run all day or (like I do) have it end after my morning commute. Obviously this can be a manual profile as well so you could run it any time you needed to.

    Hope this helps.

    So, I've seen that there hasn't been a post for a slowdown since 7/8. Are we considering this issue closed with the latest release?

    Jeff, reading through this issue, you're loyalty is amazing! I need to keep on purchasing your products!

    I like this kind of post!!!

    Truthfully, I don't believe that PC is the cause of the slowdowns. I do however believe that PC can "trigger" the slowdown. There are many posts now from non-GoTreo customers complaining about slowdowns. I very much believe there is a problem in the Treo's phone subsystem that is the root cause of the slowdowns and applicaitons that use the phone API trigger this Treo bug. I do not have a defined scenario that can reproduce the slowdown but I can tell you that you will *always* see the slowdown only when a signal indicator is visible. Once you swithc to an application that does not display a signal indicator, the slowdown stops until you again display the signal indicator.

    Thanks, Jeff. Can you explain what you mean by the signal indicator? I thought the problems were the result of the new Cingular updated until I updated the Cingular software with 1.13 ROW and I didn't have the problem anymore (I turned off PC for those days as well). When I turned on PC with 1.13 ROW it started to happen again. Then I saw the chain of posts in June/July about PC and the posts stopped around July. It does make sense that an API (or set of APIs) you use would cause the slowdown, but I thought it was the Cingular update which was the cause.

    If there's a feature that you think may cause this, let me know and I'll turn it off.

    It was strange, last night I plugged in the charger and the screen was dimmed when I woke up. The good thing was that it didn't have the slowdown. However, the screen dimming would have caused my battery to wear down if it wasn't plugged in. When I didn't have PC enabled, the screen wasn't dimmed in the morning.

    Let me know if you'd like me to try something to test out your theories.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    The dimming behavior is a bug that I need to fix. Just need to find time to get it done!

    The signal indicator is the little icon you see in applications like the Phone application, some launchers, etc... It basically looks like a T with bars after is showing the relative strength of the phone signal. What I have seen is that you will ONLY see slowdowns when this indicator is visible. If you swtich to an application that does not display this signal indicator your slowdown will immediately STOP. But if you again switch back to an application that displays this signal indicator, the slowdown will again resume. This all assumes you are in a slowdown condition to begin with.

    Does this help?

    Jeff - you provide some of the best support out there so please treat this as advice rather than criticism! Through your eagerness to help people out you've provided people with several different places to ask for support or provide feedback. For example, for ProfileCare alone, I see:

    1. A "Discussion" forum in the GoTreo Software Forums
    2. A "Support Forum" forum in the GoTreo Software Forums
    3. A "Master Future Feature List" forum in the GoTreo Software Forums
    4. A "ProfileCare Discussions" thread at http://discussion.treocentral.com/
    5. A "ProfileCare Support Forum" thread at http://discussion.treocentral.com/
    6. A "ProfileCare Discussions" topic at http://mytreo.net/


    There may even be other places!

    My advice is that fragmenting your user community like this is harmful and confusing. Here's an example of how it can go wrong: http://gotreosoftware.com/modules.ph...viewtopic&t=74

    If you have everyone in the same place,

    1. you avoid users accidentally getting ignored,
    2. you avoid having to repeat yourself in multiple forums (e.g. every time you post a new changelog - I really miss being able to see exactly what changed in the very latest VolumeCare for instance),
    3. everyone is better informed,
    4. the users support each other much more often (because for any given user's issue, there is a higher probability that there will be another user around who can help) - leaving you more time to improve the software.


    I realise it may be hard (though definitely still possible) for you to consolidate everyone into the same place by now. But it would be great for you to at least consider it :-)

    Another GREAT supporter is CESD (Pimloco DateBk5). The mailinglist (yahoo) is heavily loaded but works like a charm.
    Idea? (Though I LIKE TreoCentral ...)

    I understand your post and views. You are right in one way and mistaken in another. The explanation is that I do have different user communities. One here at TC, one at MyTreo.net and one at my own website. I do not want to stop posts in any of these places. Each user community needs to remain in their respective place of choise. The GoTreo site should ideally be used only for support requests and a seamless way of tracking issues and problems.


    What I really need is a volunteer or set of volunteers that will help me manage each of the forums. I have so many developement projects to complete/start. I am also building up the marketing part of the GoTreo business and at the same time handling customer support and forum responses. So far I am keeping my head above water but you have found one area where I can really use some help right now. Any takers??? The person that steps up needs to commit to the job though. I pride myself on customer satisfaction. I rarely drop the ball on things (but have have dropped several balls in the last few weeks.) So you will need to be very responsive to posts and have a good working knowledge of the GoTreo products. For doing this job, you will get free software from me for as long as you are doing the role. In doing the role, you will have full administrative rights to manage the forums. Up to and including: creating forum topics, managing threads, responding to support requests, forwarding issues to me, etc.......

    If this has been discussed before I apologize. New user to PC. I got it primarily to get my Treo to vibrate when I receive new email. I can get the vibrate to work with every app except versamail. I know the profile is working because my ring/alarm tones are working as they should. My tone selection does work with versamail but not the vibrate. Am I missing something? PC Ver. 3.06 Thanks

    Do you think it would be possible to place an option which would disable all changes between the hours of x:xx and xx:xx? I need global notice of profile changes during the day, but use my Treo as my morning alarm clock - the midnight lights and bells and buzzing are simply murder. I can't think of any reason I would ever need profile updates overnight.

    I just noticed that PC is not controlling the email alert tone either. The tone will only work if I select it in Versamail preferences. The vibrate still does not work. The alert tones and vibrate seem to work with all other apps that I use it on. Thanks.

    The profile called "Overnight" that is available in the PC 1.4.4 zip release does just what you are looking for. Here is the snippet from the user doc:

    Finally, the Overnight profile runs every day from 11:30pm until 6:00am the next day. The brightness is brought down to minimal levels, all sounds (except for alarms) are set to low volume, the screen is set to turn off after 23 seconds, the keyboard lights are set to automatic mode, the screen is in Day mode, the Bluetooth radio and IR beaming are turned off to save battery power, and the LED is turned off.

    This profile does not allow nesting which will prevent any other profile from modifying settings common to the Overnight profile. However, it will not prevent other profiles (such as Backup mentioned below) from setting preferences which are not common. For example, this would allow the Backup profile to perform a soft reset in preparation for running backups.
    If this doesn't make it quiet enough or the start/end times are not right, you can certainly adjust it further. As Jeff mentioned, the screen will still briefly come on when the Overnight profile starts and stops, but it'll be quiet and dark in between.

    I had something unusual happen the other day. I have Profile Care 3.03 on my Treo 650. I sent a photograph via bluetooth to my son's Nokia telephone just to prove that I could. I noticed that the keyclick sounds had returned (keyclicks and the 30 second screen problem are why I got PC - thanks Jeff). After poking around in PC to no avail, I decided to Disable and Re-enable Profile care and the problem was gone. A couple days later I sent a picture via bluetooth to my daughter's Motorola phone because she was jealous. Keyclicks are back. Same cure as before. I can send any kind of file back and forth between my HP laptop and my 650 with no problem. Why did PC forget the settings when I sent files to my kid's phones?

    For your Bluetooth/Keyclik problem, I'm not sure it is PC, I've had the same problem even without PC. When I activate Bluetooth, keyclicks appear.... PC is a great help in this case, as I just have to reapply the profile (and not to go to Prefs, Sound....)

    I have set up a profile for "home". When I am at "home" I am usually in a quiet environment and I don't want to hear any noise resulting from me typing on the keyboard or navigating around a program. How do I turn that down. I have system sounds on the Sounds tab turned all the way down but that doesn't seem to help.

    Overall though its a great app. By the way, where can I download the templates?

    Thanks

    I've got ProfileCare and Ringo installed and have an mp3 ringtone selected (on the SD card). ProfileCare's day profile is set to mute the phone ringer, but it doesn't seem to be affecting Ringo and I still hear the MP3. I've not found anything in the forums regarding this - is it a known issue, or something unique to my Treo?

    Treo 650. ProfileCare 3.09. Ringo 4.42.
