Dell by Logitech keyboard problem

by Walter E / July 19, 2004 1:48 AM PDT

When I select the sleep button on the keyboard the message says "System Standby Failed"
The device driver for the 'Terminal Server Keyboard Driver' device is preventing the machine from entering standby.
Please close all aplications and try again. If the problem persists, you may have to update this driver.

I don't know where the driver is located and this problem just started a while ago. The key was working fine prior and I must have done something to cause this.
Dell is no help nor could I find info on the Logitech site. I have the standby feature working in the power options and it stands by at theprogrammed time but I want to also be able to standby when the keyboard key is selected.
Any help would be appreciated.

Did you get a fix for this problem? I'm having the same problem and would like to know how to fix it if you can assist.

Thanks in advance.

This is a not unusual issue with the usual fix to never use the Logitech keyboard software. My Windows 2000 install strangely just works fine when I tap the sleep key. Most of the time, the software on the CD is best not installed. If you must install such, get the latest from the logitech web site.

I had the same exact problem with my Logitech wireless keyboard. I solved it by going to Control Panel, selecting Add/Remove Programs, and selecting Adobe Type Manager 4.0 to completely remove it. I rebooted and now it works fine.
