"lock computer" keyboard shortcut broken after installing fingerprint software

2008-02-22, 20:16 PM
I just installed the fingerprint software for my T61 so that I can log-on with a fingerprint. That works great. It's cool. BUT, now I can't use CTRL+ALT+DELETE [ENTER] to lock my computer. "Lock Computer" isn't the default button on the dialog box anymore, and in fact, I can't even tab to any of the buttons. The keyboard accessibility is completely shot.
 
Will someone at Lenovo see this and patch this for the next release of the fingerprint software?

I haven't ever tried that method, and confess I haven't yet configured finger print, however if I need to lock my T61 I use Fn+F2 works a treat.

Hello,
 
Can you lock your computer by pressing the Windows key and L together at the same time?

Yes, that works. I wasn't aware of that shortcut.
