Nope, not me. I did post about the need to clean the contacts of new rechargeable batteries. They can power the Newton but may not accept a charge because of poor contact. In such cases, you may use your Newton to a point where the discharge is so deep your Newton goes into a "Coma". But it still contain enough charge to keep the Newton in sleep mode but not enough to wake it. Removing ALL batteries and letting it sit will remove this state held by the Newton.
