Hi,

I use a Palm TX as my Clicker client system, and I run into this issue: If I want to turn off the Palm TX while running Clicker using bluetooth, I first must disconnect in the Clicker software, and then turn off. If I don't, I need to reboot the Palm, as things become locked. I realize this probably is due to the Palm OS not multitasking, and/or getting upset about bluetooth connections.

I wonder if Windows Mobile clients have the same issue or not? I would seriously consider moving to a WM device if I could solve this (my Palm is only used for the Clicker software and occasional web browsing).

Thanks for any ideas.

Hm. Have you tried waiting 30 seconds or so before resetting the device?

Best.

I *think* I have, but I will try again tonight.

Does this happen with Windows Mobile devices as well? I realize this is a small detail, but at least with a Palm TX, there is no way to power off automatically when Clicker is running, and using the power switch without disconnecting Clicker first causes some issues (or a 30 second wait as you have described).

Clicker is stable on my Treo 650. Lots of other apps are not.

I wonder if you might have installed Clicker to run off the SD card rather than out of RAM. I could see how this could cause this sort of instability.

I run a lot of my apps off the SD card on my Palm, but I'm quite selective about which ones.

I don't know how to recover crash information from a TX, but it seems that it would be worthwhile to gather this information and pass it along to Jonas.

The Windows Mobile behavior is quite different and varies a lot between different devices, OS versions, and stacks.

You wouldn't see this particular problem, though.

On the Windows Mobile 5 devices I've tried, "turning off" the unit doesn't, really. Clicker keeps running.

Best.
