Preventing laptop from going into standby, on a Dell Latitute CPXh

Preventing laptop from going into standby, on a Dell Latitute CPXh

Preventing laptop from going into standby, on a Dell Latitute CPXh

(OP)
Any Clue?

The device driver for the "SMS Virtual Keyboard" device is preventing the machine from entering standby,please close all application and try again. If the problem persists, you may need to update this driver.


  

RE: Preventing laptop from going into standby, on a Dell Latitute CPXh

Based by my own working experience:
    the problem is caused by some software, especially some
related to digital camera or scanner. it won't permit standby because it think it's still working.
     you can remove them or download the latest version to see if works.
     BTW: may be you use the software which is designed for windows 98 on w2k
hope it can help you
