    Hi guys!!
    About two weeks ago, my 700p (755 mod) started acting really weird. About every fourth day or so... it gets amnesia!! What i mean is... My data is there, but all my color preferences aren't. I loose things like button assignments, color schemes, all reg codes!! There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to when or why this occurs.

    Any ideas???

    Well, you most likely have a diseased Saved Prefs file. You could delete it and start with a fresh Saved Prefs file, or do a hard reset and sync your PIM data only, and do a fresh install of all your apps.

    Just a guess here, but it may possibly be related to the 755 ROM on a 700p. Palm does not recommend the 755 ROM update on a 700p.

    I had this happen back in the days of my old 650 and early in my 700 days. I would then every morning copy my saved pref file to the card just in case. I set up Resco Explorer to do this for me at 7 am.

    Also I think Butler has a feature that helps secure the integrity of the file. Not sure.

    Reset Doctor ( has an option to save the preference files - I use it on my Centro with the preferences locked. Also, if you are capturing important data, take a look at OnGuard (

    Butler has nothing to do with file security/integrity.

    I wasn't sure, but then I remembered this an option that could have something to do with integrity:

    Special Bonus Extra Features!

    * Turn the LED off automatically at the times you choose - and still show when your Treo is charging.
    * Press and hold the phone key to beam your business card (just like the old days!)
    * Reactivate a locked screen during a phone call by pressing 's'
    * Access the command bar
    * Automatically clean the exchange manager entries to reduce the risk of crashes

    Would that be integrity related?

    I've encountered this too and found that the saved prefs was getting clobbered. I have a nightly card back up so when it has occurred I have just restored saved preferences from the table and the problem is fixed. It has stopped happening recently so I suspect it was some piece of misbehaving software with a bug in it that was recently updated. Its not happening any more.
