Check to see if the IR is set to be active constantly. Àlso there os an app
that keeeps it awake so the screen comes ōn at a touch. Finally, every
Newton comes on at 3:00 am to do clean up. Make sure you have the sleep set
to just a few minutes.

fantastic product and everything works perfectly, except the battery. Using
the AA battery tray, the Messagepad drains my 4 AA alkaline batteries within
2 days. The same applies for the new NiMH rechargeables I bought. All this
power drain is happening while under light use.

Many sources tout the long battery life of the MP2*00s, but this doesn't
seem to be the case for mine. Can anyone here shed some light on this? Any
help would be greatly appreciated. :)
