I am using keytest to debug a problem and found keytest reports the "wake" key is being pressed once a second. Has anyone heard of this before or have a clue about it? It's approximately once a second, varies by a few ms. It is bios code 0D, win code FF, and it's an extended code (so actually 10D). It is not like a stuck key. My repeat rate is much higher than 1 sec, and this shows a down and up time. It happens even when in safe mode, even when I disconnect the built-in keyboard (laptop) even when I connect a usb keyboard. There is no "wake" key on this. It is not the scan code for the sleep or standby key, but for the "wake" key. It affects little things like when I do alt-tab to switch programs the box of program icons stays open for at most 1 sec and then disappears. Anybody seen this before?
