    Left Shift Standby

    Got a Window 98SE user who has a problem that when they hit the left shift key the PC goes to standby. I've checked the accessibility options and power profiles but everything seems to be either disabled or set to always on. The right shift is fine but it's difficult to get used to using that one as I've found out as I'm posting this from the users PC and have hit the left shift key 3 times whilst typing this! <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>

    Changed the keyboard to one which had special buttons for Wake, Sleep and Standby and it works fine now. Weird one.

    I would suspect the (original) keyboard had gone iffy - you could always try swapping it with another the same or onto another pc to check.

    I don't believe this .. just got a call from the user: "Thanks for sorting my keyboard. Somebody just reminded me I spilt water over it yesterday. Would that have affected it?" <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15> LOL
