HP48 turned on automatically after the OFF instruction? - tal - 03-14-2000

Hello everybody, I wrote the following setup program to install the library ABC in HP48SX calculator:

%%HP: T(1)A(D)F(.); « CLLCD "INSTALLING ..." 1 DISP ABC 0 STO 'ABC' PURGE 'setup' PURGE OFF »

I wonder if there is a possibility that the calculator will be turned on automatically after the OFF instruction to complete the installation.

Thank you very much. Best regards, Tal td@chem.ch.huji.ac.il

Hi,

I'm not sure if this will work in your application, however you might try inserting the following just before the 'OFF' instruction. When this alarm executes it will turn the calculator on. If you then press a key it will stop the alarm and delete it from the alarm catalog. Otherwise you need to manually delete it, which will also clear the alarm annunciator.

DATE TIME .01 HMS+ 2 \->LIST STOALARM DROP

Hope this does the job for you.
