    The only (and very useful) third-party title for the mobility center i can find is "display off", which allow one quickly turn off the monitor. Very handy for power saving.

    I didn't know about that 'display off' feature, but I did find something more convenient:
    I found this program called "monitoroff.exe" that just turns the display off until you move the mouse/press a key/etc., then mapped it to a shortcut in the quick launch tray.
    This way if I can just click on the icon in the bottom left and voila!

    Hey miner,
    What files are in the HP Tablet folder? I doubt an installer is in there.

    Does the monitor off tile have an executable that inserts it into mobility center?

    thanks,
    tj

    Thanks for the help miner! I'm not sure I would know how to inject something into the mobility center without the install. I created a new thread with some other info I've come across. You can view it here -http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/showthread.php?t=18460

    Have you tried getting a hold of that folder and running the Action.Repair vbs script?

    Good call billycat! That didn't even occur to me!

    Miner, I noticed a file in your screen cap that says VBS_x64 which makes me think you're running Vista64. Is that right?

    I'll need to get a 32 bit version of that folder if anyone has it! Maybe that will work!

    Thanks!

    Just had a quick look at that vbs script and it looks like it indeed does add the additional panels to the mobility center. (Assuming that TPTile.exe adds the panel.)

    Let me see if I can find a host and I'll try to zip and upload my folder.

    EDIT:
    Here it is.(Megaupload.)

    Curiosity killed the (billy)cat.

    Did this work?
