I have a Panasonic P1 that regularly switches itself on - flattens the battery. When I come to use it I have to charge it and reinstall all the software!!

Also when changing the battery it doesnt remember any settings - is the backup battery dodgy - can it be replaced - is it a ROM issue???

HELP - its driving me mad!!!

I don't know anything about that ruggedised device in particular, but since it seems to be a Pocket PC, there is probably some commonality with consumer-level Pocket PCs generally. As such, if you look into Start | Settings | System | Power | Control you should find options for shutting the device off automatically after your preferred interval. For instance, check the box which says 'turn off device if not used for' and then use the menu to select 3 minutes. Or 5, or 1, or whichever you prefer. This power time-out should turn off your device if it's turning itself on for whatever reason. Your power settings might be in a slightly different location, depending on the exact OS version, but all PPCs have such options.

As for the backup battery/settings loss problem, I would suggest either changing the backup battery for a new one if this is possible, or changing the main batery with the device connected to the power adapter so that current is being provided to the memory while the main battery is removed.

Hi,
I would contact Panasonic and make sure you have the most up to date rom for your device. Also, ask them if they have heard of any problems with the battery like you described.
