It wouldn't just turn the CPU off, since the CPU is only the processor. It would turn the whole computer off.

    (By "processor," I hope you know that just means the one big main chip inside the computer--CPU = central processing unit, a.k.a. processor chip.)

Hi,

How to turn off Sticky Keys: disable the Ease of Access feature
Tip: use the Windows Ease of Access Center






How to turn off Sticky Keys: what are Sticky Keys and why turn them off?
Sticky Keys is a Windows Ease of Access feature that makes it possible to use keyboard shortcuts or type capital letters without needing to press more than one key at once. Normally, you'd hold down the Shift key while pressing a letter to type a capital, or hold down the Ctrl key while pressing 'S' to save a document. It's even trickier if you want to use a shortcut such as Ctrl-Alt-Del or Ctrl-Shift-Esc.

With Sticky Keys, you can press Ctrl, Shift or Alt, let go and then press another key - Windows will interpret this as pressing two keys together. You should also hear a beep if you have speakers connected.

That's great if you're disabled and can't press two keys at once, but what if you want to disable Sticky Keys?

How to turn off Sticky Keys in Windows 8
You can't press Shift another five times. Instead, you need to bring up the Start menu (or Start screen in Windows 8) by pressing the Windows key. Now type "ease of access" and click on Ease of Access in the list of results.

If you're using Windows 8, you need to click on the Ease of Access Keyboard settings result, and then it's a simple case of sliding the Sticky Keys toggle to 'off'.

If this does not help you. Let us know the below details to understand the issue bettery.

Instead of getting the @ symbol when I press shift +2 i get "


you need to hold down ctrl and function on the left side of your keyboard, and then hit the shift key on the right side of your keyboard. Then let go of right shift while still holding down the control and function keys, and then hit right shift again.

these blue keys are french keys. if you change your keyboard settings to english US or UK, it will get rid of the blue functions, but for some reason, they tend to turn themslves back on again after time. Most likely due to automatic updates followed by an auto restart. Also, I find that the issue only arises if I am in my hotmail account.....no issue in Word docs.

My shift key wont work at all


Holding down both shift keys at the same time wont work. Chances are you have a dead key. use the other shift key instead. if a program is mapped to use specifically that shift key, remap it to the opposite one.

If you are using a desktop, replace the keyboard; if it is a laptop replace it if you can yourself, otherwise, call a computer technician.

Shift key shuts down my computer


Someone is probably playing a prank on you. Disable the services one by one until you find the program that is assigning those programs hotkeys so programs can't run with hotkeys.

I can't get a pound sign when I shift 3 what do I need to do


Hello,

I would initially shut down the machine completely and wait about 10 seconds and restart.

What symbol do you get when you press Shift 3?

Do all the keys on the keyboard depress when you press them? You may have a random key that's sticking thus causing you to get different key combinations.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks
