PALM: Disable Palm auto-off backwards

Description

Running: ScummVM 0.7.1 for PalmOS Build Mar 29 2005 11:10:56 Games Tested: Monkey Island 2 Hardware: Palm Tungsten T5

This concerns the "Disable Palm auto-off" option under the Options->Misc menu.

When checked: The auto-off is disabled and the game continues operating as expected. The auto-off length outside ScummVM is not modified.

When NOT checked: The auto-off occurs within the game as expected. The auto-off length outside ScummVM is reset to 0 (always on).

So when I used the default options, (unchecked), my auto-off timer would be reset everytime I played the game. This would lead to a battery drain down to zero when an alarm went off and I wasn't around to turn off the PDA.

I'm not sure how it works, I found that the auto-off listed under the Palm Prefs would still show 1 minute, but the PDA would not turn off. I grabbed a 3rd part app (Set AutoPower Off Gold) and it correctly reflected the timeout setting as described above.

Perhaps this has already been fixed in your recent beta, but I didn't see any messages to that effect.

Hi,

This is supposed to be fixed (after this release). Anyway I'll check it to be sure this bug is really fixed.

Does "after this release" mean that it should be fixed in 0.8.0, or that it'll be fixed in 0.8.1 ?

comment:6 by SF/chrilith, 15 years ago

IT has been locally fixed. Don't know if I'll have time to make a v0.8.1 but if so it will be fixed in it.

Err, "locally" means "not in CVS" ?

Also, I didn't mean to ask you for a PalmOS 0.8.1 release -- rather there are some plans/thoughts on making a general ScummVM 0.8.1 release, and it would be nice to see this fixed there, wouldn't it?

Anyway, if it's not fixed in CVS, this should be left open.
