x61 tablet on screen CAPS lock is on but the keyboard CAPS lock indicator is off

2008-12-17, 19:40 PM

I have an x61t that when it locks for screen saver password and you have to CTRL ALT Delete the relog back on. the CAPS lock on the onscreen keyboard indicates on but it's not.


1. Log into the tablet.

2. The screensaver would lock the tablet.

3. Press Ctrl Alt Delete to get to the logon screen.

4. The on screen keyboard would show the Caps Lock key as on but it wasn't. If they pressed the Caps Lock key it would then be on.

5. The users don't press the Caps Lock key now, even though it is being displayed as on, and they can logon OK.


I cannot recreate this problem on another X61tablet and this behaviour happens even when the notebook is in a docking station with an external keyboard.


anybody seen this error before?
