HTC Touch screen toggle

Hi guys,

I have a HTC Touch which I have connected to my computer permanently and would like to just use for sending/receiving txt messages via computer software.

It seems I am having an issue with whenever the phone goes into 'suspend' it loses connection to the computer, I have researched this quite a bit and installed some software called SPB Pocket Plus to give me a "Screen Toggle" which seems to keep the connection to the computer alive. Whenever I receive a message though the screen comes back alive and stays on till I manually press the screen toggle button again, Is there a program or something that can automatically turn the screen back off or even not light up at all to a new message.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried adjusting backlight options? They're here:

Start > Settings > System (tab) > Backlight

And also here:

Start > Settings > System (tab) > Power

BTW you posted in the Touch Pro forum, which is different from the PPC you show as being HTC Touch. To verify which phone you have, navigate to:

Start > Settings > System (tab) > Device Info > Identity (tab)

See if the Model No. is VOGU100. If so, this thread belongs in the Vogue forum.

Ah, hah! So, you have a "Touch Dual" with the slightly smaller 2.6" (vs. 2.8") screen, and a drop down hardware dialpad. Far as I know, it's neither Touch Pro nor Vogue! Oh well, it's your question that's more important anyway.

Over a hundred views, and nobody helping? Hmm. Maybe we don't understand the question. Like, how exactly is your Dual connected to your computer? Is it tethered, sync'd, or simply a 'handshake' type ActiveSync connection as when flashing a ROM or using desktop software to control mobile device. Or maybe that's part of what you're asking.

In any case, I'm really not able to help. Clarification might help somebody who's more knowledgeable.

Re: HTC Touch screen toggle

Hi again,

Thanks for the replies ,

The HTC Dual is connected via USB Cable to a Windows 7 Machine. I am running the software: "Efficasoft Mobile Express" to send/receive txt messages on the device as this is the only software I could find with compatibility for Win7. I have also tried those power and battery solutions you have mentioned in your old post but after the timeout the data connection to the computer seems to disconnect but charging continues.

Re: HTC Touch screen toggle

Since charging continues OK, it would seem you could set both backlight and power to never shut down by UN-checking both boxes that apply when on external power, i.e. while charging. Here's screenshot for power (box is similar for backlight):


If this works, I'd suggest setting backlight at a really low brightness level so as to keep from over heating.
