Save Screenshot continually pops up


I just installed Fedora Core 3 on my laptop. Its a Compaq Presario 2500 series, 2585US to be exact. The install went fine, I'm running it now, but a weird thing keeps happening. The Save Screenshot window keeps coming up. No keys are stuck, it happens at random. It happens when I am using the computer and happens when I'm no where near the keyboard. Sometimes one window, sometimes 3, and when I went to the gym I came home to about 40 windows open.

Any ideas?

Still having the problem. I'm assuming its something screwy with my laptop and Fedora. Something didn't install right and I'm too green to figure it out. So I'll do a reinstall and give Mandrake a try, see if I get better results.

Is the machine using ACPI, can you see anything irregular
in
~/.xsession-errors
or
/var/log/messages
/var/log/debug



Cheers,
Tink

Fixed

No idea what the problem was. I ended up reinstalling Fedora Core 3 and I immediately updated the kernel. Hasn't been a problem since then. Thanks for the help!
