The hack immediately shuts the Palm Computing Device off after it is awakened by the contrast or hardware application buttons. This prevents various cases that press on the application buttons from killing the batteries. StayOffHack can also prevent the Power Button from getting pressed in your pocket and waking your Palm Computing Device. When you enable this feature it will require you to first press and hold the page-down key before pressing the Power Button to wake your Palm Device. It's a nice way of keeping people from turning on your Palm Device as well.
