USB remote issue with PowerShot A480, please help.

Hi, I'm trying to set up the simple OnePush usb remote for my PowerShot A480, but somehow the camera doesn't respond to both events of connecting/disconnecting the USB power in <ALT> mode using a USB charger, I expect that the camera should focus (press half) when I connect the USB power, a picture should be taken when I disconnect the USB charger (press full).

I am sure if I missed anything, do you have any ideas or know the cause of this? I'm attaching 2 pictures here (it seems I can only attach 2),

pic_1.jpg: here in the regular non-ALT mode, I can see the debug message "USB" prints the correct value either 0 or 1 when I disconnect or connect the USB power.

pic_2.jpg: in the ALT mode, nothing happens when USB power is connected, or disconnect.

Note that I've already set CHDK Settings -> Remote Parameters

1. Enable Remote [Enabled]
2. Switch Type [OnePush]
3. Control Mode [None]

My CHDK version is a480-100b-1.3.0-4161-full

try : Control Mode [Normal]

and you need to exit <ALT> and be in normal Canon shooting mode when you want to use the remote to actually take a picture.
