Question about HP iPAQ HX2490 Pocket PC
New 2495 with fresh charge (to 100%) will be completely dry the next day with no usage in between. I have seen postings that suggest that the device turns itself on at random times and runs down, but no solutions posted, and anyway, what would run it down in 6 - 8 hours? Is it watching movies or playing mpgs? There are none loaded. I hate to purchase a new battery if there could be some simplier solution. Thanks, Tom Skinner, email@example.com
I know this is an older thread, but my 2495 was doing the same! I found out that it was my Outlook that was causing the problem. It was set to check for new email every 1 minute, and it appears to have been turning itself on over night to do this check (every minute!!). I disabled this feature and did a soft reset and volia! I did turn it back on to test this fix, and sure enough it kept turning itself back on! Did the fix again and it works fine!
