PPC 2005 - Power suspend and serial port issues

Nov 29, 2007 at 7:04 PM
While working with a PPC2005 TDS Recon, if you turn the power off or it automatically goes into suspend mode: the SharpGps library will crash with a Serial Port IO Error. As far as I've been able research, this probably has to do with Serial Port objects being invalidated. Has anyone else been dealing with this issue? Is there a planned fix for SharpGps or a workaround that anyone knows about? I've tried catching the suspend power notification and then stopping the Gps Handler, but this throws an exception as I think the ports have already been invalidated or something of that nature.
