    I'm not sure about Chronos, but I can definitely help with Listpro! Sorry for any delay - we try to keep an eye on all the forums, but with our recent eWallet release and our new NewsBreak 2.0 release, there's only so much time in the day!

    This is a problem that Ilium Software has had several reports of. ListPro's Alarms feature is periodically run as a notification event, just like calendar alarms and similar items - that's why it doesn't appear in the Startup folder.

    It's set to run when the time is changed on your Pocket PC, in case any alarms need to go off. Many Phone Edition Pocket PCs and Smartphones will try to change the time during startup, and apparently that happens before the ListProAlarms program is allowed to run properly.

    Our developers are looking at any way to fix this in the next version of ListPro. For now, the only way to fix it is to completely disable alarms in ListPro.

    To disable alarms, you'll need to delete the ListProAlarms.exe notification event from the Notification Queue on your Treo. You can do this with any number of utility programs, such as MemMaid, SK Tools, etc. The one we recommend for this specific purpose is Check Notifications by Scary Bear Software. It's totally free and all it does is let you delete items from the Notification Queue.

    Once you delete the item, turn off your Treo and wait 30 seconds before trying a soft-reset. If you don't do this, the change to the Notification Queue may not be saved to storage memory, and you'll keep getting the error message.

    If it doesn't work, just send us an email!

    Thanks for posting this response, Kevin. I've been meaning to post this question, too, but got too lazy.

    Thanks for the info. Is there a draw back to deleting this file? Would there be less of a drawback if any to disable the local network time check instead?

    P.S. I have had list pro for 2 years and cant figure out how to set an alarm. Can you help me?

    If you want to use alarms, you'll probably *not* want to do what I said previously - deleting that notification event will prevent alarms from working at all!

    Turning off the local network time option *may* reduce or eliminate the Notification Error, so give that a shot if you want to use alarms.

    If you turn off the local network time option (unfortunately, I'm not sure exactly what options you have, as they appear to be different depending on the ROM version of your device and carrier-specific settings) then your phone won't change its time to match your phone network. If you travel a lot, you'd have to remember to change the time zone yourself. Also, if your phone's clock is fast or slow, it will obviously not be corrected.

    ActiveSync can synchronize your time, so if you sync your Treo to your computer often, you may not really need your phone to get its time from the cellular network.

    How to set an alarm:

    1) When looking at the List Tree on your Treo, press Menu -> Preferences -> Enable Alarms for this file on this device.
    2) Open a list and go to Menu -> List Properties
    3) Tap on the 'Alarms' tab, and enable alarms for that list.
    4) Make sure your list has a pre-defined Date column, and set a date/time for an item.

    When that date/time comes around, ListPro will pop up an alarm notification.

    Thanks. I disabled the network time and it completely eliminated the error notification. I dont need to sync with the network time since the time is updated from the desktop sync a few times a day. Thanks again.
