here is an interesting data point regarding the use of VNC and the 
non-response to taps on the left side of the screen image.  If I use the 
N800, under the control of a VNC (Tightvnc) client to connect to a 
Windows System using the N800 Rdesktop (RDP) client, then I my taps on 
the left side of the screen (e.g. the Windows Start button) will work.

In  other words what ever "dead space" there is when the N800 desktop is 
showing in the VNC client image becomes "live" when Rdesktop is up and 

Also, I should mention that I don't experience any loss of connectivity 
due to screen inactivity, although the real N800 screen itself does go 
dark. In other words if I click on the screen image, the clicks are 
received and processed by the VNC Client=>N800+RDesktop=>Windows Server
