Default Palm TX General Questions


Hi all,

I replaced my Pocket PC with a Palm TX a couple of months ago and I have to
say once I got used to the different Operating System I am impressed.
However, just a few questions:-

1. A couple of times in the morning the battery is around say, 65%. I put
the Palm in my pocket and when I next look at it at lunchtime the battery is
completly drained. I have put the Keylock on so it is not accidentally
getting switched on. Any ideas?

2. I have stored some downloaded files onto the memory card, *.wav and *.pdf
files etc., but then I can't access them. I have tried a demo of one of the
"Card Search" applications and I can see the files but still cannot access
them.

3. How do I copy a file to the Palm without converting it? I wanted to do
this to be able to send the file as an attachment to an email sent from the
Palm.

Thanks in advance.

Charles

Make sure the WiFi and Bluetooth connections are turned off to reduce
battery drain.

Do you have the T|X set to lock and require a password after
a certain period of time? My T|X is set to automatically
lock after 1 hour of nonuse. I have two applications on my
T|X that will cause the T|X battery to drain if either of
these two applications is "open" when I switch off the T|X
and leave it for more than 1 hour, that is, long enough for
the T|X to lock. I have noticed that the when the T|X locks
it briefly turns on and then right off. These applications
seem to keep the T|X from turning off automatically when
they are open.

The two applications that cause this problem on my T|X are
MathUPro and Sudoku (by Andrew Gregory as there are many
Sudoku programs.) Other applications may have similar problems.

You need applications that can read pdf and wav files in
order to "see" them. The Palm does not have a built-in way
to view files other than with applications that will open
them. One way to see the files on your T|X is with a
program such as FileZ.


First, does your e-mail program support attachments of the
type you want to send? Is there a companion program on your
PC or Mac for that e-mail program? If so, that desktop
application should allow you to upload the attachment to the
T|X. If not, you can always copy it to the memory card, but
you are still left with the problem of getting the e-mail
program to recognize the attachment.

Hi,

Yes I was running Sudoku, so that may be the problem, however how do you
actually "close" an Application. On the Pocket PC it's just like Windows,
but with the Palm you just seem to switch views and hope the application is
closed, when you select the application again it loads.


Regards,


Charles

Perhaps I should not have used the word "close". I just
mean that if either of the identified applications are
displayed on the screen, the T|X will hang when the autolock
feature kicks in and the battery will drain.

On the other hand, the Palm OS does not seem to be a
multi-tasking operating system, and I believe that only the
application that is on top is running. (For example, when
Sudoku is not the top active application the Sudoku timer
stops.) So perhaps "closed" is an accurate description.
