Tell me exactly how you do a hard reset.
No checking the web please.
Also, we just changed years so who knows what new software bug you've found.
Me? I write PalmOS applications so I could by mistake cause such an issue. This is why a hard reset is needed.
Thanks for your posting.
I tried a hard reset by pressing and holding the power button, then pressing the reset button on the back. I waited about 15 seconds. Nothing happened. (I also tried a soft reset, by pressing the reset button and nothing happened either.)
You have a good point about changing years, perhaps I should delete the third-party applications.
My Tungsten E2 won't turn off either......
I have had it about a year and a half, no problems so far. I am a novice in using PDA's. What can the cause of this problem be and how can I fix it?
As noted above.
If some third party program had an issue, then???
Sync it, hard reset and erase then re-test. Don't sync it so you can test with a clean machine.

The "won't shut off" problem is related to a birthday reminder that extends over the new year. My friend's birthday is the 5th of Jan and I had set a reminder for 7 days prior. If it had been 4 days it would not have been a problem. Opening contacts and deleting the birthday reminder solved my problem. Hope others are sucessful too.
Best to all in the New Year!
Turning off bday reminder worked
Thank you very much - changing the setting for the birthday reminder for January 5th fixed the problem of my Tungsten E2 not turning off. I viewed the link you provided, now I know. My E2 is working fine now, Thanks again!
Kudos to MargotNP on this one.
They clued me in on this old bug. I just added a more direct link on the issue.
turning off birthday reminder
I am so glad that I read your posting. The same thing has just happened to me and I changed the birthday reminders ( I had 3 of them ) as you instructed. The problem was fixed just as you described .
Thank you !
Thanks for this posting.
I've had my Tungsten E for about 5 years and this is the 1st time that I ever had an issue with birthday reminders in January. And I think this would be the 2nd year that my son-in-law's birthday was in there.
Thought my Tungsten E2 was heading to the trash until I came across this thread. Thank you VERY much. Mine kept powering up and dying by the end of the day. I had a birthday reminder set for January 7th. Just shut the reminder off and BOOM...it's working perfect again. I love the internet for reasons such as this!!!
