    Anyone know of a hack that can make the "Keyguard: Press center button to unlock" message disappear? I still want to have keyguard protection, I just don't want to make it so easy for someone to pick up my PDA and know in an instant how to mess around with it. I'm surprised there isn't a hide option for this message.

    Alternatively, maybe someone knows of this option....I used to have a cool 3rd party app on one of my old Visors that required the buttons to be pressed in a certain order before the screen would turn on. The buttons used, and their order, were customizable. I searched for something like that on this site and on PalmGear. Couldn't find anything like it.

    If the message can't be made invisible, I guess the next best thing would be to disable the keyguard and find a button-press-security option instead.

    I've been looking for such program all over and have found non. The closest to it are some security programs such as teallock which has a quick passsword entery future. But again there is no program which will work as a key guard with user defined key combinations. The problem with the security programs are that if you press the wrong key combination, it would not turn the device off after 4 seconds like Keyguard. I started the following thread a while back but got no where.

    Try the Butler Alternate Keyguard, it does not have any text and you can set it to display for only 1 second.
    Thought of the day :
    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway

    Butler provides a keyguard substitute that only displays a little key icon to indicate that it's on. TealLock provides a "button-press combo" option for unlocking the device.

    Could this future be used as a keyguard function? can the unlock keystroke be predifined by the user? If not, how would the keyguard be unlucked with butler.
    If it does act as a keyguard, does it turn off the device when it wakes up due to network signal changes?
    your reply would be mostly appreciated.

    PocketpcProtector seems to be able to do this:

    PocketProtector is simple to configure. The MultiPress settings allow you to configure the number of presses required to turn on your Palm as well as the time limit for completing the required presses.

    This should work when you disable the keygurad in prefs. Also the + ver has more options...

    Lots of questions there Mateen:
    -The unlock combination is either just the Centre Key or Option+Centre
    -I find that it is VERY good at turning off after any wakeup of the Treo, thats the main reson I use it. You can define how long it stays awake, which in my case is 5 seconds.

    Now I don't mean to be rude Mateen, but as Butler has a free use period during which it works 100%, why not try it for yourself and discover that it can do lots of other useful tricks as well


    Go on have a go
