Hello - I'm looking for pointers / tech docs / white papers
that describe how to optimize battery life on Treo devices
connecting to Pylon/Exchange -

- I get ~18 hours of useful battery with the Pylon/Treo sync
/ push settings that I have on my Treo 600 - I have some
Treo 650 users that burn through batteries very fast (a few
hours) yet they do not appear to be syncing more then I do -
initially I set their devices to mirror the settings on my
device and then battery life is acceptable; later they
modify the settings slightly and they burn batteries - I
reset their device to mirror mine but they still burn
batteries -

- it seems like they have to do a hard reset and reinstall
to get back to a reasonable battery life - is this a Treo
650 issue or a Pylon sync/push setting issue? -

chris o.

Chris:

You will want to have a look at the Push Certifications and Best Practices
for Wide Area Wireless Synchronization document whihc is part of the Pylon
Anywhere doc set.

Here is a link to the documentation in case you don't have them handy :
http://www.ianywhere.com/developer/product_manuals/pylon_anywhere/index.html

You may want to check if these users are using Network Push, and how large
their Push window is on their device (ie: longer push window = more time the
radio is maintaining its connection with the server).

You could also investigate their screen brightness settings, screen turn-off
delay, and even find out what else they are using their device for.
Obviously, if they are working on the device all day, the power required to
keep the screen lit and process information could account for battery drain.

Hope this helps.

Also, for future posts, we have a newsgroup dedicated to Pylon Anywhere at
ianywhere.public.pylonanywhere.general

- yes, been there-done-that - will re-read PushCert doc - we
have disabled almost everything we can see that will have an
energy impact and still be able to get mail, and calendar
updates -

- there appears to be a didtinct battery difference between
Treo600 and Treo650 on battery charge life - yes, more
colors and higher res screen could be part, but - the
Treo650 users's sync logs really aren't much different than
my Treo600 but he gets a few hours per charge vs my ~18+
hours - neither of us use the phone; primarily a calendar /
email sync need -


- oh, can you put the link to
ianywhere.public.pylonanywhere.general
as it is not found on a forum search and modifying this
forum url to point there doesn't work -
