Scorpius K3NT USB Keyboard prevents resume after standby in Win2K

Unless I unplug the K3NT keyboard before entering standby in Windows 2000, the computer will not resume normal operation. If I unplug the USB connector before entering standby, I can resume operation normally irrespective on when I reconnect the keyboard.

Standby operation has been normal with the PS2 keyboard and USB mouse I have been using before I bought the K3NT keyboard/trackball unit.

When entering standby, the usb ports go to sleep. Most motherboards allow you to tell the bios that you are using a usb keyboard. That should solve the problem. I keep an old ps2 keyboard plugged in and on the floor as a 'just in case'.

How do you "print screen"?


I don't think that this keyboard has that key built in.
Have a look at Gadwin PrintScreen for capturing screens or active windows (and other features). The default hot key for this program is "print screen" but can be redefined.
You could also use the on screen keyboard.
Windows XP comes with a built in on screen keyboard. Basically a graphic of a keyboard comes up and acts like your keyboard, you can use your mouse to hunt and peck around. What uses does this have and what did I use it for? Well, it's good for people with disabilities, where it would be easier to use a mouse than trying to type or it's great to use when your keyboard goes loco on you. Yes, we've all had our keyboard go nuts. Here is how you launch it:
- Click "Start" button - Click on "RUN" - Enter\type "OSK" (without quotes)
The keyboard comes on
You can also create a shortcut to the "On-Screen Keyboard", because if your keyboard should go out on you, it would be handy to have it. All you do to create the shortcut is to:
- Right click on the desktop - Click the new shortcut button - Enter\type OSK, click next twice, and there you have it.

I have a keyboard model Ione Scorpius-35 with built-in trackball...how do I remove the trackball to clean the contacts? Other trackballs had a ring that you could twist with a pen-point and then remove the...


Afternoon. I read that this keyboard does not have any access to the trackball directly. I guess when cleaning time comes, the whole thing will have to be taken apart.

I am considering the purchase of this keyboard; would you recommend it? I am looking for a keyboard with mechanical keys and a built in trackball.

Put new keyboard on and when i go into standby mode now the computer will not power down, it will say its going into standby and go off, but the power supply stays on, it used to power down,and everything...


IME, standby leaves the power button flashing because the board is still powered to keep memory alive, so it shouldn't have appeared off before. It would however be quiet because the voltage required is normally not enough to warrant use of cooling fans... or that area of the board is not powered.

Try starting in safe mode as Administrator, uninstalling all keyboard drivers, rebooting to CMOS/BIOS/Startup and looking through the areas, changing nothing but:
  1. On-board Devices - Enable onboard USB keyboard (if it is a USB keyboard)
  2. Power Settings - Wake on Keyboard (shut off wake on mouse if present and you have an optical [laser] mouse, as it is too sensitive and might not allow you to completely go into standby)
And taking notes on what you changed JIC.

Remember, don't change anything in this area unless you know it is correct. If you accidentally change something, it is best to exit out without saving and start again with a reboot. Then when you're sure, F10 to save and exit, select Yes [Y and then Enter] and boot to normal windows.

Then when you reboot, drivers should install or you should be prompted for the driver disc

Very possible standby is not enabling completely or "Windows is hanging" on standby. Check Windows Updates for that or reenact the problem, note the time and check event viewer for errors. Event viewer is accessed by Administrative Tools or by typing eventvwr in the Run dialog box. Red Xs will be errors. Click on System or Application in the left column and search the right column for a red X (You'll see a lot of them most likely). Match the time the error occurred and then find the Event column on the toolbar, which will show the Product ID. Product ID is the ID of the component/program. Search google for the description you see when you double click (or right click > select properties) the Event in the right hand column.

How can you switch over to different computers with the Scorpius -p7 trackball keyboard?


If your keyboard and this KVM Switch are both PS2 (from the picture I see the KVM Switch is PS2 and from the Internet searching for Scorpius -p7 trackball keyboard I see it can be either USB or PS2) the connections are straight forward.

Usually a 2 port KVM switch uses keystrokes to make the switch, they are usually "Scroll Lock" or rarely "Num Lock" -- press the key 2 times with about a second or less between presses. You may hear a BEEP from the switch indicating "it's hearing your request."

Good Luck

Windows XP Pro hangs on resume from standby or hibernate


There are many reasons this can happen, and unfortunately very difficult to pinpoint the issue in a particular case.

1. In your system BIOS there is usually two sleep mode (power states) you can select. It is Usually set to S3, change it to S1 (or vice versa), and disable wake on LAN (if available) unless you need it

2. Attempt a clean boot and see if some background startup item or service is causing the issue. see this article for troubleshooting startup items

3. Make sure you drivers (especially chipset, network, video and sound) and BIOS are up to date.

4. Disconnect as many things as you can (boot with just your keyboard, mouse and monitor) try a different mouse and keyboard.

I hope you find the cause, also check in Event Viewer to see if there are corresponding errors

Window resume loader


There is a known corruption problem with Windows Vista's resume operation, but I've not yet confronted it on a laptop. On a desktop the problem occurs when a USB keyboard is in use, and the resolution is to unplug it and make sure that you're using a standard PS/2 keyboard instead, but I am not sure if this will work on a notepad. It depends if the notepad scans for an external keypad at boot time. Try plugging in an external keyboard before you turn the power on and see if that works.

If it doesn't work, I'm not sure what to suggest. People who have had this problem appear to have tried everything from resetting the BIOS to reformatting the hard drive. If you try it and report failure I'll investigate the matter further.
