It is now. I think turning off 'Hibernate' did the trick.

This keyboard has software programmable keys:

Back - Forward - Stop - Mail - Search - Favorites - Web/Home - My Computer - Calculator - Sleep

Anyway, as I stated previously, turning off 'Hibrnate' seems to have done the trick.

Thanks for the hep.
