1. ANN: AutoOff 1.1 - Disable the "auto-off" timer

AutoOff 1.1
by Joe Grand, The Grand Design


AutoOff is a very simple PalmPilot application that is useful if you
want to
disable the "Auto-Off" timer built into the PalmPilot.


Install AutoOff just as you would any other PalmPilot application--just
the file named AutoOff.prc using the InstallApp application that comes
the Pilot Desktop software.


When you prefer to disable the "Auto-Off" timer, launch AutoOff from the
PalmPilots' application page. That is all you have to do! The
panel will appear when the program has been successfully run. Though the
preferences still show a time next to "Auto-off after:", the actual
is disabled.

To re-enable the "Auto-Off" timer, launch the Preferences (by tapping
Prefs or AutoOff) and select the General panel. Simply select the
time of your choice. That's it! The "Auto-Off" timer is re-enabled and
PalmPilot will automatically turn off after the selected amount of time.


AutoOff makes a call to the system function SysSetAutoOffTime() which,
when passed a value of 0, will set the PalmPilot to disable the
timer and never automatically power-off.


You can bind AutoOff to one of the hardware buttons on the device. Why
you want to do this? If you have a reason to repeatedly disable the
timer, pushing a button on the front is much easier than going to the
applications page, searching for the icon, and launching the
To do this, open the Prefs application, select "Buttons" from
the popup menu in the upper right corner, and change the bindings there.

Bug Reports, Comments, etc.:

I don't know how there can be too many bugs in a three line program,
but if you encounter one and/or have a suggestion, feel free to contact
