At a cursory glance, it seems that the run method of the tAlarm thread does busy waiting without ever stopping or sleeping.

So how do I solve it Tim
Is there an easier way to perform the same function.
I myself know that the thread keeps the phone pretty busy

One approach would be to let the thread sleep for 60 seconds after each invocation, since it doesn't do anything on a finer granularity than that.

Oh yeah,
Thanks Tim.
Just one question. Are you an SCJD or something???
Because you are too experienced. You have 2000+ posts and I have seen other threads, your posts are mostly useful and more 'to the point'
Thanks a lot Tim
See you soon

Thanks for the kind words; I never knew one could be "too experienced" :-) I don't have any certifications, as I never worked in a job market where any of those would have counted for much. I do have a degree in computer science, though, and that more than makes up for it :-)
