5MX won't turn off automatically anymore
My Psion 5MX threw a bit of a wobbly recently and stopped responding. I
thought it was a gonna, but after taking all the batteries out one last
time and putting in a new backup battery it seemed to have come back from
During the 5MX's fit it seemed to have trouble recognising the presence
of power/batteries. It now seems to be working again, but it will not
turn off automatically after X minutes, however I set the "switch on/off"
preferences. It also seems to be slower, as if it's trying to sort
something out in the background. Any thoughts?

This one has me stumped. I had battery problems when my screen cable
was failing. I've also had similar slow-down problems, but not in
conjunction with the battery problems. A hard reset cured those.
In your case it sounds like some runaway process is both slowing the
machine down and preventing it from switching off. It will probably
eat up a bit of battery power too. It might be worth trying another
