Thanks for posting back, not many people do that.
There's more to this story. I have a Dell Inspiron 543 which is totally compatible to the new keyboard I bought. So, because I had the problem with the new keyboard I am afraid that if I hook it up again, I'll have the same problem. I called Dell yesterday (4/9) to get a "sendback" lable since my pkg slip did not include one. I got talked in to talking to the Tech people again and ended up talking to an "expert" on keyboards, at least the one that I bought, and he told me that all I had to, if I hit the half moon key again that would put my computer to "sleep", was to push the power button and hold it in for 30 secs and the turn my computer back on and it should be awake. Well we are going to see how that works. I'm about to try it agian and I'll let you people know if it works or not. I had this thought last night after all of this and wondered why anyone would want to put their computer in the sleep mode anyhow? Zuko53
