    I am trying to multi-task on my Treo 700W, but it will only let me open one or two applications at a time. I must be missing something. I opened Calendar and Contacts at the same time and I was OK. I then opened Notes and it closed the first two applications. I find that I can only keep one or two appliacations running. The OS seems to close the others after a very short time.

    I did the same thing on my 8525. I opened 9 applications without a problem and could probably have opened more. They were all running fine.

    Why can't I do that on my Treo. It seems like I am missing a setting, but where?

    The W has very little RAM, and if it needs some, it automatically closes some apps in order to free some. If you reset, you can open more than 2 for a while.

    Pattycerts,
    That did it. Amazing what a reset will do. I launched 9 applications while recording using Audacity. Thanks for the advice. I should have known.

    two things you can do:

    1) Lower the memory threshold for closing apps:

    2) Have Oxios Hibernate around, it frees up some memory should you need some:

    Lowering the memory threshold works wonders. The 700wx has twice the memory of the 700w and fixes this problem.

    Here's your fix. Take the battery out of the 700W and throw the device out the window. Now, get a 700wx. If you just bought your W, call up Verizon/Sprint and demand they take it back.
