Hi!

Recently I bought the MS Internet keyboard, because it was cheap and
nice. I installed the keyboard software and it allows me to redefine or
disable the extra keys (like "E-Mail "etc.), but the software does not
allow me to disable the "Standby" key, the software has simply no entry
for that key at all.

That is annoying, as I don't want that "Standby" feature and I want to
make sure that I don't get a problem if I should accidently press that
key.

Andy idea what to do?

Thanks,
Joe Randstein

Somewhere in Control Panel > Power Options you are able to specify what
action the computer is to take in response to certain events, such as
"closing the cover" or "pressing the sleep button". Assuming your
Standby key corresponds to the "sleep button", you can disable it there.

I think you would have to do some thing like this:

have to find the scan coad for the standby key, I have had a google
and it seems rather elusive.
