Posted by Swooper on July 26 2006,1:04 pmSomething I have noticed about my MeriGold (firmware version 5.4) is that every time I remove it from external power (cradle connected to the cigarette lighter in my car) the backlight turns on. I am then forced to turn it off by holding the down power key. This seems counter to "saving the battery" and I would prefer it not do this. Is there a way to keep this from happening?
Thanks in advance for your help.
