Using a Toshiba Satellite laptop, error is coming up -

"The device driver for the Standard 10/102-key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 keyboard device is preventing the machine from entering standby. Please close all applications & Try again. If problem persists, you may need to update this driver."

This happens after the laptop is on for a short period of time, and not being used.

I'd appreciate your help!

Thanks.

Hello suegy!

Have you tried updating the driver from the manufacturers website?
Are you using the laptop keyboard or have you plugged a normal keyboard in?

IT IS THE LAPTOP KEYBOARD. NO, ACTUALLY I HAVEN'T TRIED UPDATING THE DRIVER. WOULD THAT BE ON THE TOSHIBA WEBSITE OR SOMEWHERE ELSE?

THANKS FOR THE REPLY.

There might be a driver update or a firmware update on there.

yes that driver would probably be on the toshiba website....it's probably either under keyboard, or chipset..

you can also change your power settings for your machine to where it doesn't go into standby....this wouldn't fix the problem...it would just stop the error untill you find the driver.
