Palm Sync-n-Quit 2.0 reviewDownload
This script runs the Palm Serial Port Monitor (SPM), then quits it after a the Conduit Manager quits so you don't have to remember to quit it and get the nasty crash on wake problem.
This script runs the Palm Serial Port Monitor (SPM), then quits it after a the Conduit Manager quits so you don't have to remember to quit it and get the nasty crash on wake problem. If you follow the instructions, you can then just hit an F-key, hit synch on your Palm, and not worry about remembering to quit or having to go to a menu to select a script that quits it. This script is set for a 15 second delay, meaning you have 15 seconds once you have the SPM running to get the Palm in position and tell it to synch.
If you want to change this code, or any of the delays, select "Save As Run-Only..." from the file menu. Then name it and, from the pop-up menu below the entered file name, select "classic applet". These are necessary only if you want run it using an F-key. You may not need precisely these options otherwise. Put it (the script) some place where you won't accidentally delete it. Use the keyboard control panel to assign a function key to it.
No warantee is expressed or implied. This code may cause all sorts of nasty things to happen, but I'm running it myself, so... probably not. If I'm wrong, please fix it and send me a copy. You are free to distribute this code, with documentation, as long as it's in its original form. If you change it, document your changes so I don't take the blame.
It no longer requires the Serial Port Monitor to be located in a pre-defined location and uses Eric Grant's sleep commands osax to avoid hogging the CPU. You need to install a copy of install Eric Grant's sleep commands osax . Beta 6 has been included for completeness. To install Sleep Commands, drag the file named "Sleep Commands" onto your system folder.
