Start menu pops up

Windows 7 forum,

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit

In my power options the display is set to turn off after 10 minutes
when plugged in. When I tap the space bar to bring the display back
up the start menu always opens. How do I stop the start menu from
coming up?

I found out a fix this behavior.

It requires a change to the registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
In this folder the key named StartMenuInit is defaulted to 4 so set it to 2.

The first time I rebooted there were some new icons on the taskbar and
all I had to do was unpin them.

Start menu popup not solved

Windows 7 forum,

In my post "Start menu pops up" I thought I had solved it but changing the registry key
StartMenuInit to 2 but it only fixed the it temporarily. After a couple of re-boots it
gets set back to 4. Still looking for a solution.

It just started doing that. How do I make it stop? Maybe it has something to do with when I right clicked on the doodad on the lower right corner and checked "peek at desktop" to see what that does, but I've unchecked it and the desktop window still pops up at startup, checked or unchecked.
