The only thing I know that would make them disappear is if
someone has disabled them in the BIOS/Setup menu. How you
get to BIOS depends on the system..it is usually tapping
the DEL or F1 keys during bootup. Look for the COM port
settings inside the Peripheral Devices menu.
 
 
 

1. com ports gone ?

2. COM port goes to sleep and doesn't wake up

I've got an app that reads data from the COM port on a PocketPC 2003 device.
When the device goes to sleep (either by inactivity timeout or by pressing
the on/off button) and is then woken up by pressing the on/off button, the
COM port stays asleep and doesn't receive any more data.

The file handle remains open but all calls to Win32's ReadFile return zero
bytes.

If I close the file handle and open another one to the COM port, everything
works again.

Is there some way to "kick" the COM port back into life after the device
goes into sleep mode?

Cheers,

MikeS.
