When I try to soft reset my ipaq 3760 it performs a hard reset. I
don't push the reset button too long, even when I perform a soft reset
command using Itask, a hard reset is performed.
I am developing an application for the pocket pc and it 'hangs'
regularly, so it is very annoying to have to do a hard reset each
time. Ihave to calibrate the screen again, set the time zone, create a
new partnership and download the compact framework all over again,
this takes a lot of time! Does anyone know how to solve this?
