For what it's worth, I own a Palm m505, and love it..It's always with 
me. I has the USB cradle. I know that Palm or someone issued an advisory 
about the the cradle being faulty. I ended up sending my old one in and 
getting a new cradle that didn't have the static problem. It seems like 
the cradles in question had an E in the coding on the bottom. I can't 
recall the details, but perhaps you are dealing with a faulty cradle.
