I use MortSaver 2.0 on my iPaq 6315. I have used it for about a year and it works very well. The program is freeware. You may download it from Pocketgear.com at:http://www.pocketgear.com/software_detail.asp?id=14321
Copy the cab file to your iPaq using activie sync. Just click on the explorer button in active sync. Click on the PPC icon and place the file in any directory you choose. Then go to your Pocket PC (PPC) and open your file explorer. Navigate to the directory where you placed the cab file and tap on it with your stylus. It will automatically install. Then go to the program menu on your PPC and launch Mort Saver.
Note: The download contains two files. MortSaverPE-2.0.exe is for Phone Edition devices, MortSaver-2.0.exe for all other devices. Both are setups for your desktop PC.
MortSaver is a combination of screensaver, keylock, and a "stay off!" function.
: The display's turned off, but the PPC keeps running (e.g. for audio players). In spite to other tools, MortSaver turns off the dispay again if it's been switched on by e.g. an alert or the on/off button.
Keylock: All buttons (except the one necessary for deactivation, of course) are locked, as far as it's possible to me. A few programs sadly use some undocumented tricks, which allows them to get the button presses even if they're assigned to MortSaver in the system, or set themselfes as topmost window, by which the direction pad keys will be sent to this window. Disabling MortSaver can be done either with one button or a sequence of two buttons.
"Stay off!": PocketPCs are often switched on by themselves or accidentally - by alerts (appointments, SMS, ...) or accidental button presses in your pocket. In those cases, MortSaver can turn off the device again after a selectable timespan (so you recognize MortSaver's active and the device alive).
After power on or system-caused disabling of the screensaver, MortSaver shows a countdown until the screen or device (depending on settings, also see instructions), the button(s) to deactivate it, the time, battery level, a user definable text (e.g. owner infos), and on Phone Edition devices also signal strength and hints about missed calls and SMS.
MortSaver is Freeware, i.e., you can use it without paying.
Modifications are not allowed.
If you think it's useful, a small (or big ) donation would be gracefully accepted, of course...
