9.9. HotSync Manager

Palm Desktop is a surprisingly flexible home base for your data on the Mac. Believe it or not, however, Palm Desktop has nothing to do with the actual HotSync process. All communication with your PalmPilot is performed by another important program: HotSync Manager.

To open this program, choose its name from the Instant Palm Desktop menu (see Figure 9.1). (If you have MacPac 2.5, choose Setup from the HotSync Manager submenu.) You see HotSync Manager's Setup screen, a glorified on/off button for your ability to HotSync. Select Disabled, which tells your Mac to ignore the HotSync cradle, when you want to use the HotSync cradle's jack for another purpose—MIDI, modem, or digitizing tablet, for example. None of them work when plugged into that port while HotSync Manager is enabled.
