    Hi folks,

    This is not the biggest problem in the world (minimal battery usage, perhaps), but I have noticed that my Treo 650 turns itself on periodically for no apparent reason. I haven't touched it. I haven't received a call or e-mail or text message. I don't have any clock, calendar, or alarm programs running which wake the Treo. No alert screen is flashing. It just seems that it turns itself on, screen and keyboard lite up on whatever app I had running when I turned it off, it sits there lit up for a moment, and when I don't hit the unlock button, it goes off again.

    Anyone know why this is happening?

    Could it be that you're in a low or no-coverage area and the Treo is searching for the network? It seems to be common with the Sprint version.

    Interesting thought, didn't know that was an issue. But I'm 3 miles from downtown Syracuse, NY, a city of 150,000 with metro area of 500,000, so the coverage has been very good and I've never seen less than 2 of those signal bars, often 3-4 bars (or 5, however many is the most).

    Mark:

    My Cingular GSM does that, too.

    my Sprint Treo does this regularly as well, seems rather worse since the 1.12 upgrade. it didn't used to bother me but the last few days it's getting on my nerves since it'll wake up 4 or 5 times an afternoon when it's just sitting on my desk doing nothing.

    It's not the afternoon wakeups which are potentially a problem. It's the overnight ones. I keep my Treo on the nightstand next to my bed because it doubles as my beeper for when I'm on call (I'm a doctor). It's enough that I get woken up by patients and by my 3 month old baby. But when it just turns itself on, it's pretty bright, and my wife and I need what sleep we can get! So I have to remember to put it on the nighttable face down. That way one can barely tell it's on periodically.

    An educated man like yourself should know you need to sleep with your eyes CLOSED!

    You might want to look at using the software known as "brightcam" - it automatically adjusts the brightness of the display & keyboard by using the camera. Pretty clever, eh? It will also disable the LED after a certain period of time in the dark.
