    My screen has just started doing exactly the same thing. I'll be half way through writing a sentence and the screen has switched to the desktop. I have to click back on the document to start writing again. It seems to happen randomly, even when I'm doing nothing with mouse or keyboard. As hankmc897 says, the icons on the desktop disappear for a second when it does this.
    FYI, I also just connected my Apple Express and updated software - could this be a factor?


    Thanks in advance!

    I have the same problem. It's not the keyboard, I've checked.

    Exactly as Hankmc897. Exposé/Dashboard does not fix problem. Tried repairing disc/permissions, rebooting etc. Virex running OK

Open your System Preferences. Go to Dashboard & Expose. This is a very helpful application in my world. Whenever you want to see all the windows, hide windows, start screen saver, you just push your mouse into the appropriate corner. Sounds like you have a corner set and when you hit it, you trip the effect. Change the corner and check them out, Handy to use when you have multiple windows open. Experiment and see.

Factory Reset for Centro and Treo 755p


If you've set a password on your smartphone, any hard reset will automatically become a Factory Reset. With this method, you'll enter a password and then perform a hard reset.

1.On your smartphone, launch the Security application.
2.If the Password box says "Unassigned," tap the box and create a password for your smartphone. Press Applications to exit the Security application.
3.Now that a system password is established, we'll perform a hard reset to complete the factory reset. With the device face down, remove the battery door. Removing the stylus may make it easier to remove the battery for the next step.
4.Remove the battery. Then put the battery back in.
5.When the Palm logo appears, press and hold Power/End until the black status bar at the bottom of the screen fills and disappears, and then release Power/End.

6.If you performed this reset correctly, you should see a white screen with black text saying "reformatting in progress" (any other activity - such as the Palm OS logo and then the Applications launcher appearing - means the reset was performed incorrectly; try again). Your smartphone will appear to reset again after the "reformatting in progress" screen disappears.
7.When the Erase all data? prompt appears, press Up to confirm the Factory reset.
8.When the language selection screen appears, select the same language you selected for your desktop software. The Factory reset is now complete.
