Question Anyway to prevent cellular radio shutting off on low battery?

I did some searching and couldn't find an answer. I know the cell radio shuts off when the battery gets low but sometimes I don't notice it because I will check to see if the phone is on and won't notice the radio is off. I would much rather just have the phone shut off all together. Is there a way to disable the radio shutting off?

thx

Re: Anyway to prevent cellular radio shutting off on low battery?

Mine only does it within a minute or so of shutting the phone down anyway. So I can only assume if it didn't the phone would shut down that much sooner. Not sure there's a major benefit, but considering the phone's within seconds of shutting down as it is, it's really not an inconvenience.

yea, I was just wondering I guess - It's easier to notice the phone off then just the radio.

Re: Anyway to prevent cellular radio shutting off on low battery?

I'd love to know how/where to do this to fix a similar-ish problem.

I am having a battery-related problem (see this thread) for which would love to have a way to manipulate the WM power settings more than what the Control Panel applet thingy provides for.

Basically, I would like to disable the feature/function which shuts the radio and phone down when battery capacity status gets low. I have good batteries which my otherwise good Mogul cannot detect a status for (always detects any battery as 0% charged), and so it shuts down.

@WarChild: By polling rate, are you meaning the time before power off/backlight off? Or something similar to that? Or is there actually some setting somewhere under the hood which I might change to slow (or stop) the unit from polling the battery?
