    Perhaps it could be configured to turn on ONLY when onenote is running and turned off when close? A custom program which sends the on/off commands depending on what programs are running.

    I don't know the answer for certain, but I'm doubtful since the Synaptics system doesn't use a separate digitizer for it's pen, it is simply an extension of the capacitive sensor to pen input unlike Wacom where the two digitizers are two separate pieces of technology. Probably not conclusive enough to be helpful to you though =)

    Had thought the same thing--why not simply an on/off button on the stylus? Seems logical for any device (silly me).

    yea they really do need to add an on off button to the pen.

    mostly because theyre liars about the year long usage from one battery
