OK, just got this installed, but the program still displays even though my link in the startup folder is as below.

60#"\Program Files\TornadoPowerControl\TornadoPowerControl.exe" hide

Also, what do the numbers at the start of a link mean ?

thx

Can someone please show an example of what the shortcut/.lnk file would look like to run omapclock.exe when the backlight turns on? Thanks.

Nevermind, I got it. But how can I get this program to always run in the background? I don't want to accidentally close it out. I'd like it to always be running, but hidden. Any way to do this?

Well, I didn't change anything and suddenly after a soft reset, it runs in hidden mode.
For some reason it starts up dim, which was a setting I tried before - weird, but not a problem.
I don't want to touch it again in case it stops working correctly. ;)

what is the content of the shortcut that launches the program? if you do not specify dim or bright then it uses the most recent setting.

I recently installed the TPC, and it works almost perfectly for me.

However, when I use the power button on my Qtek S200 unit, the display does not dim. The background light stays on. If I wait until the background light is turned off by the unit itself, the light stays off when I turn if off with the power button.

Any ideas on how this can be solved?

I don't expect the software to work properly on the Qtek S200, since it is not the Tornado platform. It is specifically written for the way the Tornado driver operates. If I had an S200, I could work something out for that, but unfortunately I do not :)

Out of curiosity, what does the app say is the version number? And what phone model do you have? I just doublechecked on my SP5m, and having that exact shortcut works perfectly.

Have you tried launching it from your start menu instead of startup?

Sorry for the late reply, for some reason I'm not getting email notifications on this topic, even though it says I am!
Anyway, the version is 1.3 and I'm using it on an 8310.
Running it from the start menu doesn't make any difference.
Cheers,

Version 1.4: The update we've all been waiting four! :-)

This version updates the GUI, optimizes the events, and adds direct control of OMAPClock to overclock/underclock your CPU. Note that I am not responsible for any harm done to your phone using OMAPClock.

BTW, your battery life can be greatly increased by underclocking your phone. The opposite effect happens when you overclock it.

The MDA is not an HTC Tornado. This program will not work with any phone that is outside of the HTC Tornado family.

Thanks for the new release, in includes everything I was waiting for.
Now for me it's app in top ten. :)

The only thing to add (to make it completely prefect), is autostart link (like xbar does).
App (now) is very easy for newbies to use (and safe enough), so adding autostart feature would be great.

Thanks once again.

For some reason TPC refuses to install on my device, even though I've got loads of room.
I can install it to my storage card, but then it says it can't find the power_on etc. shortcuts.

I think it's a simple case of RTFM :-) (j/k)

As the release notes say, the shortcuts included are just empty placeholders so you know where to place those files. Until you replace them with real shortcuts, you will continue to get those messages. They are harmless messages, and don't prevent the application from working.

Even with those messages, OMAPClock and the Dim/Bright settings will still function just fine.

Anyone know how to tweak the phone so the backlight doesn't come on when the joystick is pressed or moved to save on battery power?

MERVIN:

yesterday I tested my 8300 on lowest frequency setting (116MHz) in AlReader.
Afer 10 minutes or so, it went to soft reboot.... :)
I'm afraid that under 150MHz it will reboot anyway, going to check it.
