    ARGGHHH! PDAs!

    How do you keep them charged or force them to turn off?

    I'm looking for a solution to either stop teachers leaving the PDAs with everything running (wifi etc) so the battery dies quickly or something to shut them down so they are actually off. We are forever reconnecting PDAs to the wireless network!

    Battery runs out and they forget who they are! Don't everyone's?

    Older PDAs only had RAM-based storage, which as you say means that everything is lost on a flat battery. Newer ones have a firm storage area as well to avoid this problem.

    Nope.

    I use the Odessey client which came with mine to connect to our wireless network as me, it's set to remember everything but could be set to prompt for domain password.
