    Hi robbie, There are several things that could be going on with it. Are you connecting this to a computer, a tablet, like iPad, etc.?

    the keyboard has batteries, and must be fresh. or it will mess up or be dead or lie to you.
    Targus AKB33US Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard???????????? this KBD"
    does you android tablet have working blue-tooth, is the tablet under 33 feet away.

    the manual is lame as is the screen errors. but is bluetooth failing.

    batteries are always first, never to be ignored, fresh is best.

    or may be its why of telling you it went sleep mode. so click ok, and hit keys. now.
    the word "only" implies to me the KBD went to sleep mode, and only IT can exit that, (do as it told you)
    hit keys, end sleep.

When the computer starts up and sees the keyboard and loads a driver(s) for it, it might fix it. Good luck.

How to reconnect a keyboard for a laptop

Just out of curiosity, what do you mean by "reconnect"?
Did you physically disconnect it? To correct this, put it back in the slot for the keyboard data strip by pulling up the plastic pieces on the sides of the input and placing the data strip inside and pushing the plastic back down.
But I am assuming you mean reconnect via your actual operating system.
The easiest way is to enter the device manager, either through Control Panel on Windows Vista & 7 or through Control Panel, System, Hardware, and then Device Manager.
A tab should be available for Keyboard. You may see a Yellow Triangle with an exclamation point, meaning that the driver is messed up. Double click on the Keyboard device button and go to the Driver Tab and Choose to Update the driver, and then choose automatically to search for updates. If your driver is already up to date, and you recently did a windows update, choose to rollback the driver instead.
I hope this helps you, if it does not, I apologize and hope that you may solve your problem.

Wireless belkin keyboard

Hi. I have just worked out how to solve this as I had a similar problem. When you change the batteries of a Belkin Wireless Keyboard model F8E332ukBNDL you need to reconnect the keyboard to the wireless receiver that plugs into the USB port. To do this you press the 'Connect' button on the receiver and also press the green LED connect light at the top right of the keyboard - the one that flashes each time you press a key. I'm not sure in what combination you press these but I pressed them both and it worked.
