    Are there any programs that will allow me to disable and enable the phone, wireless, bluetooth, and GPS all in one click? I know how to control each of these individually ... it would be convenient to be able to do it all at once.

    RTM?

    See that top button, the one that says "All"...hit that.

    To get to it hit Menu --> Wireless Manager

    I would have thought Palm could not have made it easier...

    And you don't "turn off" GPS. You just close out any programs that use it.

    I wonder if there's anyway to assign Wireless Manager to the Wi-Fi button on top.

    Close, but that doesn't turn off the GPS receiver.

    Not true. What is true is that Palm/WM doesn't provide you with an easy mechanism for turning off the GPS receiver ... which doesn't necessarily mean that you cannot do it. There have been several threads on this subject ... specifically about the effect that leaving the GPS receiver on, has on battery life. There has even been a tool written to enable you to query the GPS state and turn it off/on, called GPS_Tool, see http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...1&postcount=62

    I am just lazy and want all of this in one place rather than two

    Ask nicely to hannip to create a script to do it & add an icon in your launcher.

    what you want is a script that calls 2 programs.

    This one can turn off bluetooth, wifi, radio and ir.
    http://www.vijay555.com/?Releases:VJVolubilis

    This one can turn off the gps service which in turn turns off the hardware.

    Write a 2 line MortScript and you are good to go.

    hmm, looks like VJVolubilis can't turn off wifi on this device. So you have a choice. Either simulate keypresses to use the wireless manager to turn all off and gps_tool to turn off gps, or wait for a nice programmer dude to write you a little proggy to do it all.

    One button can bring up the task list, when i double click the mail button on my treo i get a customized task list like this.
