    Nope, the Treo Pro's simply brings up a screen saver or something when held for an extended period of time. I asked that question when some new Sprint Treo Pro owners first started asking how to reset it.

    Palm obviously wanted to keep their trend of "no you can't turn the thing off" going.

    If you turn off your phone, then you cant use it as a alarm anymore.

    If anything never turn off, it will die sooner.

    So all in all, its not that bad.

    If I'm going into a meeting for a few hours, where I know I won't use the device and can't take calls. Turning it off for a few hours saves battery. With Treos, you can switch to vibrate, but in a situation where even vibrate would be an unwelcome inconvenience, you've got to turn the phone off and leave the rest of the device on. And if a notification like an appointment alert comes up you're still going to vibrate at a moment when you didn't desire to. With the Touch Pro, when the device is turned back on, any upcoming alarms will still work. If I want the device off, I don't want an alarm during that time I have it off .

    The added option to turn a device off is nothing but total benefit. A benefit that it seems many devices like Blackberries, IPhones, Touch Pros and so on have. We know HTC makes devices that can be turned off, so they could have provided the feature if Palm wanted it.

    If you had a means via an exterior hardware button to turn your Treo Pro off, you'd probably not feel a need to have any soft reset software. I mean come on, the Treo is the one with all the buttons for this and that. It's about time Palm provide an easy means to turn a device off.

    Darnell,

    I know what you mean. But I wondering if there are any Palm people reading the forum here and listerning to our lost cause.

    They better act up, otherwise you know HTC will take over. Another USA consumer electronic lost.

    That's what is especially sad about issues with Palm. I tried sticking with them as long as I could, but ended up having to give business directly to the guys over in Taiwan. When the big name in American based hand held device makers is "Apple", that's sad...

    What in the world are you talking about? Where is the reset button?

    The reset button is right on the bottom left corner under the stylus. Like it was said, it is very easy to push the button without taking the top off.

    In fact,
    If you take the stylus out you can see the word 'Reset'

    It took me just a little practice. Now it's easy, and a whole lot easier than taking off the back cover.

    I found it odd that some thought you had to take the battery out.

    On a similar note; the Manual is online and can be downloaded.

    What are you using to angle in there while not taking the cover off?

    A paperclip?

    Yah I see it. What an awkard angle to do a reset.

    I just use a software that is very small and it does it also.

    Not only can you do a reset with the stylus, but you can also pop the back cover using this method. Software can't do that....... the Pro has the most aggrevating back covers to remove that I've experienced, but the stylus does the trick.
