Ahh, it all makes sense now.
I still doubt the ability of pen strokes to bring the battery to complete
drainage. The Palm is forcing a shutdown when the battery is low. Even if
the pen was aimed at the position of the prompt's OK button, the Palm unit
would insist on 'going to sleep' with enough energy to hold the data for a
few days longer. The unit is programmed to avoid data damage even if it is
_exactly_ what you wish to do.
