I was unable to receive a file from an older ipaq pocket pc. The receive incoming beams was turned on. Any idea why? Also when I select beam for a file should the LED next to the Bluetooth and Wifi LED and above the the beam symbol on the forward edge turn on indicating a the this device is trying to beam a file?

this refers to the infrared transmitter. Some printers and other devices have infrared receivers to collect the information you would be sending without wires (this was done prior to wi-fi and is installed on many PDAs for legacy support. I would venture a guess that 90% or more of the people who own devices with the transmitter do not use it.

My Axim is behaving the same way. I find that if I try to transfer something from my Palm IIIc to my Axim via infrared, it rarely sends the data immediately, and it often times out. I have found that I can often get it to work if I request the transfer on the Palm and then "stimulate" the Axim via tapping a menu selection or by momentarily blocking the view between the devices.
