I do not believe there is. It is dependent on a proximity switch in the display. You should contact lenovo for a factory authorized repair before your warranty expires.

    I meant to type sensor not switch. The sensor disables the keyboard. This what needs to be changed by an on site technician or at an authorized repair shop

Keyboard will not work


Dawn,

IF your tablet and keyboard work with "Bluetooth" then check under you tablets settings page (look for Bluetooth) it may have been turned off.

IF your tablet/keyboard does not used Bluetooth, check the battery in the keyboard, It may have been depleted...

Does the keyboard have an OFF/ON switch, that my also be your issue.

Hope this helps.

Wireless keyboards connect to tablets using Bluetooth, a wireless technology with a short range of only about 30 feet.
In most cases, you can prepare a keyboard to connect with a tablet simply by turning the keyboard off, then turning it on again while it is close to the tablet.
Read the instructions that came with the keyboard to see if it requires a passkey to connect with a device.
The passkey ensures that your keyboard is not accidentally connected to another nearby device. The steps required to connect a tablet to a wireless keyboard can vary slightly depending on the tablet's operating system.
Unlike docked keyboards, a wireless keyboard does not have to be designed for your specific tablet for it to be usable.
Turn on the keyboard and put it in discovery mode.
Place it near the iPad.

Tap the "Settings" icon, then tap "General."
Tap "Bluetooth" if it is in the Off position.
Tap the "On/Off" switch to turn it on.

Choose the wireless keyboard when it appears on the screen. Enter a passkey for the keyboard if prompted.
The keyboard name and a Bluetooth icon appear on the screen.
BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet
Turn on the Bluetooth keyboard and put it in discovery mode before placing it near the tablet.

Tap the "Settings" icon on the tablet status bar, then tap "Bluetooth."
Tap the "Bluetooth" switch to choose the "On" position.
Tap "Add New Device," then select "Search."

Wait a few seconds for the keyboard to appear.
Enter the keyboard passkey if prompted.
Samsung Galaxy Tab (Android)
Turn on the wireless keyboard and put it in discovery mode.
Place it near the tablet.


Navigate to the Home screen. Press the "Menu Key," then select "Settings."
Tap "Wireless and Network," then "Bluetooth Settings."


Tap "Bluetooth" to turn it on, then tap "Scan Devices."
Select the keyboard by tapping it.
Enter the passkey if prompted.
HP Slate (Windows)
Turn on the wireless keyboard while it is near the tablet, then put it in discovery mode.

Tap the Start button, then "All Programs."
Tap "HP," then "HP Connection Manager."
The device searches for nearby devices and lists them.

Locate the keyboard in the list, then tap the "Power Button" beside the keyboard entry.
Enter a passkey if prompted.

How to activate/use external keyboard with tablet


Try this Coby-related post, which I found... Directly quoted:

"The tablet is setup so that whenever you will be using the keyboard you will have to set it up! So with the machine on and the keyboard plugged into the tablet you select "settings" on the main screen. On the next screen you will need to scroll down to "Advanced Settings". On the next screen you will scroll down to "USB BUS MODE" and deselect the button removing the green check mark. You then select the Curved arrow on the side above the silver button wich backs you back out to the main screen. Now whenerver you open a screen requiring key imput you will be able to use the keyboard."

Ever since I downloaded Apple's latest iPad update my orientation lock has become a mute lock and I can't stop my orientation from moving. Any ideas?


In order to use orientation lock with the new update:
  1. Double-click the iPad's home button, bringing up the multitasking menu with all programs you are currently running.
  2. Swipe your finger to the left while in the multitasking area.
  3. The orientation lock is now controlled through a software feature rather than the physical mute button.
  4. Tap the orientation lock icon (circular arrow furthest to the left) to engage it.
  5. In this menu you can also quickly change brightness settings and music controls.
A new feature rumored in iOS 4.3 (the next iOS iteration) will allow for the iPad's user to set whether the physical button controls orientation, or act as a mute switch.

IOGEAR KVM gcs632U. Set up notes that to "toggle" between PCs you press SCROLL LOCK twice. My keyboard has no SCROLL LOCK so to change you are supposed to press NUM LOCK + "-"...release "-" after 1...


OK well usually in the "Setup" you can "Assign" whatever keys you need, so can't you change the keys used to what you have? ALL Keyboards have scroll lock, it is probably just "Hidden" for instance I found one accessed via pressing a Blue Fn Key and then F12. Look carefully for "Other: small writing on keys.
