Igor,<br>Thanks for your reply. It's very refreshing to have a Nokia employee chime-in only minutes after my post. <br><br>By the way, Nokia phone support also suggested I try another battery. Although I'd love to try it, unfortunately I don't have an extra battery and I bought the 770 via mail order. I'm not aware of any dealers in my area (21401 zip). <br><br>What do you mean by:<br>"the charger itself is a wakeup source, no need to press buttons. The presence of power from the charger is enough."<br><br>In my case, the charger does seem to wake the device, but I still can't get it to boot to the desktop or use the 770, even when plugged-in to the charger.<br><br>-doug <br><br><b><i>Igor Stoppa <firstname.lastname@example.org></i></b> wrote:<blockquote class="replbq" style="border-left: 2px solid rgb(16, 16, 255); margin-left: 5px; padding-left: 5px;"> On Mon, 2006-10-23 at 15:32 -0400, ext Michael Wiktowy wrote:<br>> On 10/23/06, Doug
