Re: The home key keeps resetting itself to the factory...
Yes the 3rd party software can cause your phone to do crazy things...try to isolate the program causing the problem. also under hotsyc settings you can turn off the palm contact list and change to using Agendus as your default contact and calender on your phone and that should stop the conflict...hope this helps

Factory Reset for Treo 700p and 680 smartphones
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.
On your smartphone, launch the Security application. 2.If the Password box says "Unassigned," tap the box and create a password for your smartphone. 3.Once the password has been set, disconnect your smartphone from the AC charger and take off the battery cover. Do not remove the battery yet. 4.Hold down Power/End . 5.While holding down Power/End , remove the battery. Then insert it again. 6.While still holding Power/End , the screen will show the Palm logo and a progress bar. Then the circular Palm Powered logo will appear. Release the power button when you see the Palm Powered logo.
Keep holding the Power button during this screen. When you see this screen, you can release the Power button.
7.A message will appear warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your smartphone. Press UP. 8.If you performed this reset correctly, the screen will go blank after several minutes, and you will not be able to turn on your device. The charging LED will not light up. (any other activity - such as the Palm OS logo and then the Applications launcher appearing - means the reset was performed incorrectly; try again) 9.Your device will appear "dead." To wake up your smartphone, perform a soft reset.
if you are using Vista ultimate, it is a 64 bit operating system and therefore palm doesn't have official support for it yet, but someone has found a solution: http://forums.palm.com/palm/board/message?board.id=windows_hotsync&thread.id=17980
BACK UP your Treo 650 software and data BEFORE doing the following.
1. RESET the Treo 650 back to default set by holding power buttom following by reset the treo.
2. There is a way to reset the voltage regulator in the Treo ; believe
is by holding the RESET for > 3 seconds. Believe need to take out
the battery in out during this process. Can't recalled the correct
steps. This could could reset the Treo's power regulator.
3. TRY reinstall your palm software with minimun software or 3rd
parties one, this software could be running in the back ground which
drain the battery.
Try above steps might help.
Mine also got the same problem last two weeks, my treo could felt there
is kind warm sensation if it took out from my waist pouch after leaving
it for sometime on the table. BTW, the battery could felt quite warm
If yours also behave the same which I believed the Treo got some kind
of contact problem which draw more power then usually does.
Now, mine got no more warm sensetion after carry out above steps. It
gets better as Compared to last two weeks ago BUT not that good as
compared previously when it can last 3~4 days after a full charge.
Oh, I'm sorry to hear about your fibromyalgia Margo. There is a possibility that the settings got a little jarred from being dropped so much if this is the case then you should be able to perform a system reset on the phone and just work through the prompts. If that doesn't work then you may want to call in and have a hard reset performed but it does reset it back to factory default setting so you will want to synch your phone to your computer so your information will be saved. Hope that helps :)
