Hi! My PDA seems to be in an off mode/ sleep mode or something. It won't turn on regardless of what I do. If I don't connect it to an AC Adapter or place in the cradle where it is connect to a power outlet - the power button doesn't work even if the battery was fully charged; however, if I somehow connect it to an power outlet - the power button would turn green but nothing would appear on the touch screen as if it had never been turn on. I try resetting it but it still wouldn't work.
Can anyone help me with this problem? Have anyone encounter the similiar problem? Thanks!
Hard reset the pda (poke the little hole on the back with a ball pen or something), it should boot up, on the bootup screen, it prompts if you want to reset to factory setting, answer no. lastly reset time when you get in.
I made my I-Mate PDA-N working finally. I guess the key is to use original charger to charge the battery.
I finally noticed I used my Motorola cell charger to charge my PDA. It was working for long time, but not now. So I found my PDA charger and charged my PDA. Yeah! My PDA is back to work now. (The new battery I ordered few days ago is still on the way to my home :((((( ).

If the battery is completely dead, it could take 5 to 10 minutes after you plug it in before it will turn on.
If it's in sleep mode, there should be a light indicating this and pressing the power button should bring out of sleep (or hibernation).
If none of this works and it still won't turn on even while plugged in, there is either something wrong with the laptop or the power supply and will need to be repaired or replaced. Try replacing the power supply first as that is the cheaper option.
try a new battery yet? (brand new fresh)
sleep mode. so you want it to run for 7 days in sleep.
ive no idea how long this laptop runs in sleep
and hibernate is longer.
no idea at all.
you do know that the speed features are programmable
including what chips do and do not go to sleep'
like USB ports, WIFI, and all wake on , features. like Ethernet chip.
why not just turn it off, and let the battery last longer..
this mode sleep kills batteries faster. way faster.
leave it plugged in all the time to the wall pack.
so the battery never drains unless you need to use it, on battery.
I recommend running a few programs to make sure that you don't have a virus, spyware or adware hiding in your system. Avast is a free anti-virus tool that is very effective. Super-anti-spyware is great for getting rid of spyware, and Adaware is a great anti-adware tool --- both of these are also free. Try downloading these programs (all 3) and run them on your computer -- this will likely get your system running like normal. Once you have run these, run a disk cleanup and defragmenter to get everything into tip-top shape.
There is an On Display Menu (ODM). You can access it by pushing the button located on the monitor. Use +- buttons to navigate in the menu. Here you can switch off the sleep mode or change the sleep settings. I have a simular problem... I try to turn off the power save function but it seems like it dosen´t want to understand this...
