For some reason, the backlight on my Ipaq will not turn on in the morning, and will only come on after a reset. Throughout the day it seams fine, and yet, sure enough, after being off over night, the backlight fails again, regardless of the settings. Any ideas?

Hmm, I can't think of any reason this would occur. Are you using any apps that try to manage the backlight for you?

Solution: Compaq decided to integrate another energy saving mode. If you press On/Off button for more than 3 seconds, the display light will turn off in general. If you do it again, light is back. Stupid not to mention this in the docs... At least I did not find anything.

regards
