On both Windows XP and Vista, pressing Windows+S key stores the session into memory (not sure if it is standby/sleep or hibernate) and resumes when the system is restarted. How do I prevent this? I don't want Win+S key to do anything to do w/ power management.
Thanks in advance.
That doesn't seem to be one of the standard listed Windows key shortcuts, (Shortcuts
- not saying it's a complete list).
On mine it opens up Stickies and I don't think the author would have grabbed an existing standard Windows shortcut.
Are you sure it's not your keyboard driver, (if using 3rd party kb - I've got a Logitech G15), or some software you're running that is mapping the key combination?
Does it do it in Safe Mode? If not, then it's definitely a driver or software.
Also, normally power management by way of keyboard is usually handled by dedicated keys: power, sleep and wakeup, (at least on all the keyboards I've seen).
EDIT: Just had a look at Microsoft's site, they use 'Windows + S' for toggling CAPS Lock on their Natural keyboard.
