Keyboard freeze on wake up

  bennatrins 09:28 19 Sep 09

Have an Acer Aspire 5738Z notebook. When lid closes,computer is set to sleep. When I open the lid, keyboard & touchpad are frozen so I am unable to input password & have to reset computer. Doesn't happen every time though. OS is Vista Home Premium SP2 - any ideas?

Why not reset to Close-down in normal way, then close lid after PC has switched off.

Could do but not very convenient to shut down every time before I close the lid, if that's what you're suggesting?

Yes that is what I am suggesting - but then, random freezing can't be very convenient either!

Fair point! Just wondered if I had messed up some random security setting? No matter, will just leave lid open!

You could check your Power Settings in Control Panel, perhaps an adjustment needed.

Is your keyboard power management enabled to bring the computer out of standby?
