I'm not holding down anything on the keyboard but the period button constantly presses itself at random times. It doesn't always press itself, only when I highlight a text box or something. It's really very annoying because half the time while I'm typing something it just starts putting tons of dots and I have to delete them.

The Sleep Timer
The product enters sleep mode if it is not used for a period of time. You can adjust the time period before sleep mode, but increasing the time reduces the product's energy efficiency.

Changing the Sleep Timer Setting From the Control Panel
You can use the product's control panel to change the time period before the product enters sleep mode.
Press the [img src="file:///page23image5084" alt="page23image5084" width="15.095703" height="9.057693">button.
Press the up or down arrow buttons to select Printer Setup and press the OK button. You see this screen:
The pages should change singly provided you only press the page advance button (the larger button on either side of the display) lightly and just the one press of minimum duration. If you hold the page advance button for a longer period then you will get some pages being skipped over. Also, check that you are not pressing the 4-way control right or left buttons as these will cause you to jump a chapter at a time or more. The only other suggestion is to check that you have the latest software update (version 3.3) for the Kindle Keyboard 3G model - this should download and update itself on this model but can be done manually if needed.
If your unit is a wireless keyboard only, then there is a button on the bottom of the keyboard and another on the receiver that is plugged into the usb port of the computer. In order to calibrate the system when it looses its signal, you have to press and hold both buttons down at the same time for 30 to 45 seconds. That means press the button the receiver and the button on the bottom of the keyboard at the same time and hold them down for 30 to 45 seconds. This will revive the signal and bring it back to working condition.
If your unit is a wireless mouse and wireless keyboard then there are probably 3 buttons involved that need to be pressed and held for 30 to 45 seconds at the same time. One button on the mouse, one on the keyboard and the last on the receiver.
If you press and hold the buttons down as explained above, it will correct the problem.
When you press the Power/Sleep button the radio turns on and displays a
number 90, or some other numbers. This is the play time that the radio
will stay on then turns itself off. It could be that yours is configured
with a sleep timer set to 01 minute, 10 or 15. You need to set the
timer for a longer period. Thus we turn it on by pressing the
Power/Sleep button, read the timer length then press again. Keep making
short presses: The timer will cycle through all preset sleep timer
durations. Select the length you want.
it should be listed after the 1 on your number pad. for example you press the number 5 twice to get k. just keep pressing 1 until you get a period
(unless you have one of those slide out keyboards, in which case I am unsure)
hope this helps!
Look to the right of the N and M and COMMA and PERIOD keys, for the SLASH key.
Below the COMMA and PERIOD keys, is there a key labelled ALT(ernate) GR(aphic)? If so, hold that key down, press the key to the right of the PERIOD key, and press the ALT GR key, and see if a SLASH is displayed.
1. Press and hold soft1 and soft2 keys. 2. Press and hold power
button for around 1 to 1.5 seconds. Release power button. Keep hold
soft1 and soft2 keys. 3. Later, screen shoould show instructions to
ask user to press '0' key to reset to factory default. 4. Press
'0' within the timeout period, which is only several seconds only.
5. If no instruction is shown on the screen, repeat steps 1 to 4.
The timing is sensitive.
Wireless keyboards shut down after not detecting changes in input over a time period. This is usually Hardware related in the keyboard to base station so there is no way to fix it using the particular keyboard.
My recommendation would be to go to a USB corded keyboard which would not have to have the power restrictions that a wireless one does.
Alternately if using a first person shooter, tap the strafe keys while you are running long distances, or in racing tap a unused key to keep the keyboard in alive transmit mode.
To set the timehold down the TIM button until Day flashes, Use +/- to adjust then hold down time until hour flashes..Repeat until set.
To program, 1. hold down prog until the cursor starts to flash at 12:00 2. Press PROG to advance to the day or day group you want to program. 3. press + to advance the cursor to the desired ON time 4. press mode until display reads "on" 5. use the + to move the cursor to the desired ON duration? Clock shows this also. 6. press mode until "off" is displayed. then advance the cursor thru the period the outlet should be off. (stupid to have to do this!) 7. press MODE to select as the ON or OFF period(!) 8. press TIME to exit programming. 9. Press PROG again to program another set of days.
