Windows 7: Microsoft Sculpt Keyboard issue

Microsoft Sculpt Keyboard issue

Just a heads up on a problem with this keyboard, at least with a Lenovo w530 with Win 7 Pro.

When the OS goes into power-save mode, and I used my fingerprint reader to start the system back up and open Windows, the keyboard behaves as if someone were holding down a shift or ctrl key. In any case, if I click on the firefox icon I get a problem dialog box asking if I want to reinstall Mozilla or some such.

The workaround is to close the dialog box, press and release the shift and ctrl keys, and then start Firefox.

The sculpt is an ok keyboard, but is not as good as the old MS Ergonomic keyboards, IMHO. Elegant, but not as reliable on the keystrokes.

This is the error I get whenever Win 7 "wakes up" after I used the fingerprint reader to log on. Workaround is to kill the box below, tap the shift and ctrl keys and release, and then start Firefox.
