    Members,

    I have a problem and hope you all can help me solve this issue with my 5 day old Treo. When I am finished using the Treo ie. making a call, looking up a contact etc. I hit the red hangup/power button to shut off the screen. The problem is when I want to turn the screen back on by hitting the power button it is unresponsive. Sometimes it will come right on the first time I touch it, other times it takes 5-10 tries. It seems to happen more if I just turned it to standby and then want it back on. Is this Treo defective or what? I have turned off and on the keyguard option in Prefs with no improvement. Here are the apps I have installed, I appreciate any help you all could give me. Thanks!-A.T.

    This is a well documented problem that there is no fix for.

    I follow the Treo community pretty frequently and have not heard of this. Could you please paste some links to the discussion. Thanks!

    (found by doing a search for "power button" and then scrolling thru the presented titles. . . . .)

    (I think it comes down to the 650's memory set up. The only time I have a non response from hitting the red phone for on, is when I just hit it for off. I believe the Treo is doing some memory management in the background for a moment after shut down and is unresponsive at that point. If more than 3 seconds has passed since hitting off -- the problem does not occur for me. As well, if I do get the "non-response" just one more gentle push gets the response.)

    Cheers, Perry

    Stick around here long enough and you'll hear it all. Perry posted 2 of several discussions that have taken place on this topic. AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK, $there$ $is$ $no$ $solution$, $and$ $it$ $is$ $completely$ $independent$ $on$ $any$ $3rd$ $party$ $apps$ $you$ $may$ $have$ $installed$.
    I'm back!

    Funny. I just today experienced this problem for the first time, and thought it was a fluke. Well, as long as everybody has it...

    Progress? Well, at least I can get color traffic maps now...
