Ofcourse I can lock the screen by pressing the power button (and having de XDA go standby), but I wish to lock the screen while listening to mp3's.... How can I lock the screen ? If I need a separate application, please let me know your suggestions ....

If you meant that you wanted to switch off the screen without putting the XDA on standby, here's how. Just assign one of the buttons to "Screen Toggle" when Windows Media Player is running. On the Windows Media Player menu, select Tools->Settings->Buttons. Then map one of the buttons, such as Button 2 (Contacts), to "Screen Toggle". After that, pressing the mapped button will switch the screen on and off.

I tried this 3 times and each time when I press the button (I assigned button 3- the camera button) I got a strange black and white flashing strobe on the screen which I couldnt get out of without a soft reset. Anyone else had this or knows how to deal with it?

Dunno how to deal with it but I can confirm that I have exactly the same issue. Screen Toggling does not work and ends up in a flash show that doesn't look very healthy for the display.

Screenoff works perfect, but how do you manage to let the calendar button have a double function?
Found a prog cald jogbutton here http://www.yorch.net/downloads/JogButtonSetup.zip, but this doesn't seem to work on Pocket PC PE 2003.

job button works fine on ppc2003 i have it on my xda :\ just assign calendar or contacts to job button then load up jog button click on setup then apply it to the progs you want it to open.

prob i found with pc2002 with screen off is it doesnt come back on with the power button lol so here is screen on for peeps with pc2003 no need to install this if on pc2003 as it works fine on it

use button plus v2.0 from yorches site i find it better then jog button as it allows double tap buttons and doesnt go crazy when turniong screen off on tomtom 2 lol
