    Default Flashing red light...

    What am I missing here?

    Suddenly my 568 has taken to flashing the light red. It flashes green for recent alarms, that's for sure, but now it's flashing red.

    I've no idea why.

    Any thoughts?

    Phaser on overload! Beam it into deep space NOW!

    (Just kidding...I've never seen a red light on my 565)

    I'm not sure if this addresses your situation, but the amber/red light flashes when the device is on, but the screen is off. (ie. power saving has turned off the screen)

    ...of course I'm sure there are other reasons for the flashing too!

    Default Well, I thought...

    I did have a number of high-priority items in my task list. I deleted all those and the flashing went away.

    But since I've relaunced Agenda Fusion, the issue came back.

    Hmmm...

    Seriously, I've never seen a flashing "red" light.

    I get a green steady light when the unit is charged.

    I get a flashing green light when there is an alarm or appointment.

    I get a steady orange light when the unit is charging.

    I get a flashing orange light when the screen is turned off, but the unit is still working...

    Well, I am partially color blind, maybe that's the whole problem here. :-)

    Actually, I did find the issue:

    I loaded PCTweak last night and it had separate settings for saving power. I had inadvertantly set it to turn off the screen in 30secs, not the device. I want the device off in 30 seconds.

    So, I disabled that portion of Tweak and all is well now. The device shuts off at 30 seconds.
