    I have just purchased a brand new Wireless Optical
    Desktop Elite.

    I have installed the supplies Intellitype 5.0 Software
    and selected the correct keyboard, however the sleep
    button on the keyboard does not work and is not
    customisable within the software.

    All of the other special keys are working fine - ideas

    Return the KB and get a replacement or new one, if you
    just bought take it back

    I don't think it's a problem with the keyboard itself,
    just the software. It doesn't even list the existence of
    a sleep button under the key settings tab in the
    Intellitype software.

    I hardly ever put my PC to sleep anyway, I was hoping to
    be able to customise it with the software so that it
    would shut down instead.

    Even if it is a problem with the keyboard itself, I'm not
    bothered about sending it back as I can still use the
    mouse to sleep/switch off the PC if I want.

  4. Yeah, it isn't a problem with the keyboard. Go Start-Control Panel-Power
    Options-Advanced. See where it says "When I press the sleep button on my
    computer:" set it to whatever you want.

  6. Awesome. I use my keyboard to put the computer into Hibernation all the
    time. Very nice for an MCE Computer with a BT Keyboard :)
