Wake from Screen Saver skips first key entered RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have a barcode scanner to check people into a fitness center. I want a screen saver to show up until they scan their keytag and then the screen saver to go away and the scanner to pickup the barecode for the running software.

    Almost works fine, except that waking the windows 7 PC from the screen saver uses the first digit of the barcode, so the resulting login page gives an error. 

    For example. The barcode would be 12345... windows 7 uses the first "1" to wake from the screen saver and only enters "2345" into the app.

    Anyone know of a workaround or hack to make this work. Somehow repeat the 1st digit of the barcode, only when it is waking from sleep.
