thanks for that. i do find the compact hangs alot. is it worth doing the hard then soft reset thing to fix this? what do i lose by not loading the extra things? what is the exact process?
i didn't have anything else running this morning and it hung starting tcpmp.
I found skype caused loads of problems - just for being installed - not necesserily running
There is also a suggestion that after you have done an activesync you do a soft re-set.
You can see whats running and kill things off in Start > Settings > [system tab] > memory > Running programs
Don't worry about doing soft resets many times a day - it's "normal" - you just have to be wary if you've done something recently that involves a registry change because wm5 doesn't seem to save these settings immediately and you can loose them on a soft-reset
I don't think its any worse than any other pocket PC .... Microsoft products :roll: ... beleive me whatever MS says we all have EXACTLY the same problems with them
