Wireless Entertainment Keyboard 8000


  • I seem to have a rather odd issue with using this keyboard and sleep. Whenever the keyboard is connected to the charging station, computer seems to automatically resume from sleep within a few seconds of going into sleep. Whether or not the charge station's USB cord is connected doesn't seem to be relevant.

    Any suggestions/tips would be greatly appreciate.
