    Is there a way, besides taking the battery out, to turn the phone off. I know that the radio can be turned off, but can the rest of the phone be turned off as well?

    It's a Palm....no such thing as "off".

    Hit it 3 times with a hammer, it will shut off

    The TREO 650 hardware has a hidden built-in command that WILL allow the phone to power off completely. The command structure is as follows:

    Feet> UP9flights>ARM>OPEN>window>toss treo= PHONE OFF

    Have a nice day

    turning off the radio is turning off the phone. The phone IS the radio.

    Think of the Treo as having two parts - almost like having split personalities. It has a phone side and a Palm side.
    You can completely turn off the phone side yet still have access to all the Palm features.
    You can't really turn 'off' the Palm side, other than turning off the screen - which is actually the same as turning off the Palm side.

    I've talked a lot with folks on planes and such about this, and it can get a little confusing for someone new, or for a lay person.

    But if you want the phone off, just turn off its radio. That bad boy will be off.

    while you can't turn the the phone off, you can do the next best thing and slow down the processor. one time I was on a trip out of town for a couple of days, but I forgot my charger, andi was in the mountains so I couldn't go buy another one.....when I got home on the third day I still had 33% power left!!! thanks to pxaclocker all this was possible...i clocked my cpu speed down to 100 mhz whenever I wasn't using the phone, but whenever I used the phone I used da launcher to launch the command bar for quick access to pxaclocker, after which I would clock up to around 200mhz for all phone functions( calls, games, light email access , ereader....etc) , then repeat the same steps to clock down again and the power survived the whole weekend!! so if you want to turn the phone "off"( i'm assuming because of the battery power) just clock the processor down and it'll be a work-around for massive power saving.....hope this helps...!!

    You might want to throw it against the wall, really hard. That should do it,

    my sony clie UX50 had some feature i think was called 'save mode' or 'battery save mode' where it would save the current state and all the information on the device, i.e backup, and shut off completely, even though it's a Palm!!

    Why would you possibly think that?? nrosser just got done explaining to this guy how to turn the radio off and now you're probably confusing him.

    We can please have a rule on T|C...no technical support given unless you know what you're talking about.

    i think the best possible suggestion on this thread is the 'remove the battery' suggestion. or my suggestion, if a program like the clie's existed for the treo.

    You can always do what I do: leave phone/radio on, but turn off all ring tones, alerts, and sounds in general. I want my phone to be basically call-out-only, so I have turned off the ring tones and alerts and all that.

    The other option, of course, is to really turn off the phone/radio by holding down the phone/power button until it says goodbye.

    I seen this method work with one hit... Probably the most reliable way.

    You would think something like this would be covered in the manual, I mean perhaps somewhere near the beginning even, so as such one wouldn't even have to search very far... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...miley/bash.gif

    no, the question posted in the original post is not answered in the manual. he's asking how to completely turn off the device. not just the phone radio.

    first off I don't appreciate the remarks you are making when all I was doing is giving my experience, and then what I did in a situation to save battery power, why I would "possible think that" is because my phone lasts longerruns/burns less power at 100mhz then at 300+mhz, I don't know how your phone operates, maybe it works the other way around.....i only gave him a "work-around" solution nothing more.....and you should follow your own rule about "not giving advice unless you know what you are talking about".....because obviously you don't....there is nothing wrong about an opinion or other way of doing something. To me( oh look...another opinion!! ha!! ) this is the "glue" that holds our little community together here at T|C,learning from each other and taking what knowledge you want....i'm done..good day!!
