Is anyone else with an HP49G+ having the same problem? Or is there something wrong with my machine? It looks like I'll have to buy myself another HP50g if I am to use newRPL on a regular basis.

We need to come up with a plan, as I don't have a 49G+ to test on. First of all, I need you to download and flash the latest firmware, which includes 2 new commands PEEK and POKE that we can use for debugging. I'll start thinking about the current drain and will give you a series of POKE's to try out while you measure the current. Stay tuned.
