Wakeup with USB keyboard
Anyone know if there's a way to enable my USB keyboard to wake up my laptop display after it blanks? I have APM settings setup in my bios so that the screen blanks after about 15 or something of non-activity. The thing is, the computer's only responsive to either my touchpad (this is a Toshiba Satellite Laptop) or embedded keyboard. So if I'm typing with my USB keyboard at my desk or whatnot, the display will blank even if I'm in mid-keystroke. It's kindof annoying to have to reach over and hit my embedded keyboard when this happens. So I guess I asking: Why isn't imput from USB devices, specifically keyboards, recognized as activity that would keep my display from blanking? Is there a way to fix it?
On a side note, my touchpad has ceased to work after I reinstalled Mandrake 9.1 a coupla months ago. It used to function alongside my USB keyboard. Is there something in Harddrake I'm overlooking? Or do I need to manually edit some config files or what? Lemme know.
Thanks in advance,
