Is there freeware  or any other software to use on the Palm  Zie 71 to stop the power button from turning on the Palm while I'm not using it.  The power button is very sensative and turns on while its stored away.

umm... how will it know you are using it & want to switch it on???

Seriously tho' this is a known problem with the Zire joystick thingy.  I'm not aware of any software but you can fix it but sticking a layer of padding to the inside of the case which holds it away from the buttons.  I know two users who have done this successfully (I think it runs just level with the bottom of the screen).  One other alternative - buy a Tungsten ;)

M :o)

There are plenty of solutions for you.

Here is a free one, but one user says it didn't work with the 71, i'd try it and see yourself:
Disable Buttons 2.1:

Next are 2 shareware, try before you buy, both under $10:
OffAlready 1.3.0:

Try them one by one and see which works best. I'm sure there are more out there, just search PalmGear.com.

Good luck,
