mine did the same exact thing after i was texting i just clicked the screen off and went to turn it back onand it wouldnt. so i took the battery out and tried a soft reset or whatever, because itll sometimes act up. but it normally works. i called sprint, and they said to go to a sprint store and see what they can do., im praying to god they dont need to do a hard reset. id lose everything on there. ill let you know if they do anything to help. and what it is that they did. im sorry your phone is as mentally challenged as mine.
Assuming you are running Palm OS and not one of the rare beta Windows Mobile versions, here is my take on this.
Are you using a USB or Serial Sync cable? With either solution, make sure that the setting on the Palm Desktop Hotsync Manager is set to the correct setting (either USB, Serial, IR, etc). Conflicts between the cable type and the settings on your PC are common.
I prefer using USB cables since they are faster and you can tell if you are connected quicker than with a serial cable. Initiate the sync via your phone or the Palm Desktop Manager software. I have had faulty cable sync buttons and this was a good solution for me. If you haven't tried a new sync cable, you might want to.
Actually if you have time and a laptop, you can take your Treo to a Palm store and borrow one of their cables to try and sync. They were really helpful whenever I went in there.
I heard this happens after updating the Treo 650 with the new version 1.17. Is this your case? If so just remove the new update...
Anyway, you can try the soft restart or even Performing a system reset(from the user guide p.170):
Performing a soft reset A soft reset is similar to restarting a computer. If your Treo is not responding or
you have trouble synchronizing with your computer, a soft reset may help.
1. Press the Battery Door Release button and slide the battery door downward
to remove it from your Treo.
2. Use the stylus tip to gently press the reset button on the back of your Treo.
