Although I've never seen this happen, I am assuming the error means that something is wrong with the keyboard, preventing it from going into standby or hibernate. Check device manager and see if there are any puncutuation marks or question marks. If there are, you will have to reinstall the drivers. The driver could have become corrupt somehow, so try to reinstalling it.
