    I found out that after locking the visor, the visor is still accessible after a hard reset. Is there a software that prevents it from being unlocked after a hard reset?

    On a visor, not so much. It uses non-flashable ROM, so you can't store anything on there with the OS. And a hard reset erases all the data on the RAM. If you have a springboard memory module, that's still there after a Hard Reset, but it won't be able to lock your visor.

    ...why do you want to lock it up after a hard reset? All the data on the Visor is gone. if you're trying to lock up data on the memory module, there is software that does that pretty well...

    ---edit: this may secure expansion cards fairly well:

    I just don't want anyone to use it except me, especially those who might steal it from me.

    Like dietrichbohn said, the security on PalmOS devices is aimed at protecting the data, not at protecting the device itself.

    Since a hard reset resets the device to out of the box condition, a software solution won't work (AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK) $for$ $what$ $you$ $want$ $to$ $do$.
    I'd rather be upside down in my kayak than rightside up at my desk.
