I'm very new to the Palm OS and certainly no expert, but if my Treo
crashed and was locked up, I'd be grateful that inserting the SD card
(with my backup program) turned the device on.

I very much agree with the OP. I used to experience the exact same problem
when I was using my M130. This happened when:
-My PDA was slow (particularly in reading the card contents).
-The card was filled with many files, e.g. a collection of photos.
As a result, card insertion slowed down any access to the launcher (even
though it shouldn't have). By default, it was left loose in the side
I have never found a real solution, but it seems as if OS 5.0, which I now
use on a Tungsten, does not suffer from this flaw. I also keep a small
number of applications on my SD card so much of the /quantity/ is in the
internal memory. It is not a solution, but a suggestion.
