    5. At 5:00 am, TreoHelper turns on the Treo's phone

    I've recently added step #4 because I discovered that in the aftermath of a card backup, the dbCache is dangerously low. A reset after the backup brings the dbCache back to an acceptable level.
    Maybe does not belong on this thread,,,but does running all of these apps in the background run down the Treo's batter noticeably faster?

    Questions:
    1) LookAtMe... What is the difference between a SYSTEM and INTERNAL ?
    2) On BackupVF, under schedule, what is USE MY SET?
    3) TreoHelper. I set the two times with DAY selected...assuming the first time noted turns the radio off and the second time represents time to turn the radio on. I found that when the first time hits, screen turns on with the TREO GUARD message on. Nothing else happens - I expect the radio to turn off. Am I missing something?

    1) If you tap the little "i" at the top right of the screen, it'll explain it, to wit, "Checking the system box will use the system alarm sound. Checking the internal box will use LookAtMe's own alarm sound." But for this exercise, you should check "Silent", which renders those two choices moot.

    2) Again, if you tap the little "i" at the top right of the screen, it'll answer your question, to wit, "If 'Use my backup set' is checked, then BackupBuddyVFS will only backup those files that are checked in the main file list."

    3) You've got it backwards. The first time slot is the "On" time, the second is the "Off" time.

    For the first two, now I KNOW there are "i" options on many of these programs...I never noticed . On # 3, you are right.
    Thanks for the feedback.

    I know have my T650 scheduled to: 1) turning it self off and on daily 2) resetting itself daily and 3) backing up daily. Thanks GUYS !!!

    Everyone, have you tried out RadioState too? I use it to ensure the radio is always returned to its previous state after a reset. This program prevents the Treo from deciding to switch on the radio after my first automated reset, which would interfer with BBVFS. The Treo is sometimes flaky with that.

    More sweet freeware.

    TreoHelper also has that function (and more...see previous posts) and is free as well.

    RadioState actually records the state of the radio before the reset and returns the state after the reset. It doesn't just indiscriminantly force the radio on after a reset. Big difference.

    I just realized I linked to the old version before. Here's the post with the latest version:

    TreoHelper's not exactly indiscriminate in this regard...the "Enable phone on reset" setting will not turn on the radio if you reset the Treo during a scheduled Off period.

    Bill, thanks for these instructions.
    However, is there any way to automatically, by TreoHelper or other software that is, silence the Treo's radio On/Off tones so I won't be awakened with them during the wee hours of the morning during this process?

    Yes of course but that switches off all system sounds in general.
    I should have been more specific with my request: I meant only for your described backup process.

    Anyway, I judge from your response that there is no specific way. Thanks.

    Sorry, but I've never liked having to hear System Sounds and have always kept them switched off - for every Palm device I've ever owned. There may be an app that lets you quiet a specific System Sound...take a look at ProfileCare - seems to me I heard it could do something like that.
