Default Turning of my keyboard.

My 10 month old daugher keeps attacking my keyboard while I'm typing!! Is there any SIMPLE way I can turn off and on my keyboard quickly while I'm using the internet?

Cheers.

if you unplug it while the computer is on, you will have to restart when you plug it back in. I don't think there is any way to turn off the kb

I wonder if there's a utility that disables keyboard function? If you want to activate it again, there is a series of keys you enter in order to get it going again. That would be a good idea.

sounds cute having the kid mess around with the keyboard. But dont know if their is a real solution unless you unplug that, but that will get annoying.

Get XP Pro (Legally of course ) or if you have it now thats better.

Use the Windows Button and L to Lock the PC. You have to have a password on your user account, but as long as she doesn't have an Administrator's Password (better if you're the Administrator) then she won't be able to get on if you press the Lock.

She could still turn it off though.
