The T3 is great. . . when it works, but both a friend and I have experienced our T3's reset themselves upon docking. He does it upon using the standard dock and mine happens with a portable docking station on a USB. It happens intermittently though mine had recently been doing it very often. Last Monday, it wiped out most of my appointments and crashed such that I had to use Freitasm's advice to do a hard reboot to get it running (which I would have caught if I'd read my manual!). It had locked up to the point that I was going back to my Palm Vx. My question is how do I and my friend stop our T3's from resetting themselves upon docking?

I had a similar issue when i first had my T3, after hard resetting and building a new image several times i figured out it was a piece of software i had ket from my old palm running OS3 that for some reason of another had issues with the T3's OS 5.
Hope it helps.

That sounds correct for both of us since we both used Palm Vx's before the T3. I had a tough time deleting the keyboard program that accidentally went into the T3.

Any idea how to verify which programs work well with the V5 series OS? I suppose I could start by finding the updates for all my programs on the web or deleting them if I don't need them. While the Palm can tell you which programs and the version of the OS are installed, it doesn't specify which ones 'play well' together.

I had the same experience after installing the WiFi software. The T3 behaves so strange (resets itself on the cradle, when an alarm goes off, when I use the built in recorder etc.)

The only solution is to hard reset and use a backup software to restore everything (I use the free CardBkup which is simple but safe) the whole process takes only a few minutes).

As a result I only install the Wifi software when I need it and reset everything when I finish.
Unfortunately Palm do not offer any solution !!
