Auto-Off Malfunction - Tungsten T2

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I always wished that the Auto-Off feature could be set to "Never".

Weeelllll ..., I got my wish today, in the form of my dead cold T2,
with a depleted battery.

Seems the function "das kaput". Everything else works just fine
including all other turn on / off features (the slider thing, etc.

Tried a cold (most severe) restart but NG !

Everything OK, just no auto-off.

Anybody with thoughts on this? ....

it sounds possible that you let your battery drain completely. If that's the
case, you must let it recharge before attempting anything. Even if you hard
reset while connected to the cradle, you would have no luck.

The auto-off mechanism is your friend . It is not intended to save you that
'press Power when finished' chore as much as it is intended to prevent
accidental power-ups. Remember that if any of 5 (or 6) buttons is pressed
while in your pocket, it can cause complete disaster.

It would be nice if there was a backlight-off or vibrate option after some
set idle time...

For backlight off option try HandyAid:
Dims screen after preset time, auto off up to 20 mins, prevents
accidental switch on and much more

Yes, as described, but then I was sure to fully charge the battery,
and still NO Auto-Off functioning
