On the desktop, either you have PPP listening on the USBTTY, *OR*
jpilot. So I expect if you want to sometimes not use PPP, you DO have
to have some way to turn it off and on, on the host side.

I just have PPP always listening for the Palm.

It does that already, no? If you've setup modem hotsync like this:

 In HotSync, click Modem.
 Click the box below the hotsync graphic.
 Select the Service that connects via PPP to your PC.
 Make sure it's "Connection" is set to one which is:
   Connect To: Local Network
   Via:        Cradle/Cradle

I suspect your Connect To: in your Connection is set to Modem, not
Local Network.

When I tap "HotSync" button on my cradle, the palm brings up the
network, and starts a hotsync. Then it puts the network back down
(unless it was up to start with, then it just leaves it alone.)
