  1. Key repeating on login...


    Not sure if this is a keyboard firmware issue or not, in which case I'll post on the forums there but I don't remember it ever happening prior to Win10..
    So the circumstances are completely repeatable and happen every time I do the following...
    I wrote a .vbs script to do the equivalent of essentially pressing Win+L to lock the desktop and go to the switch user screen.
    Whenever I log in apparently when I get to somewhere I can type, the number 0 repeats infinitely until I unplug my keyboard and plug it back in... (last number in my pin) Note: keys do not repeat until after I log back in, because I can type my pin just fine...
    I used to have one of my macro keys set to Win+L, but the L key would repeat after the switch user screen was reached, and would prevent idle 2 sleep function.
    I have a Razer Black Window keyboard.
    Strange part, is the vbs script is launched via a shortcut I double-click on my desktop....
    Let me know what you think.
    Thanks!

  2. Windows 10 Lock Screen and Repeating Character

    Thank you for your response.

    I am unable to get past the login (enter password) screen to access any additional functions such as a clean boot.

    As the character repeats, when I press the ctl key, it stops repeating. Release the key, the repeating continues.

    There is no firmware that is installed on keyboards. Sounds like your VBS program is the culprit. You do not need a program to lock the OS. Just set the timer at a shorter time or use your phone as a way to trigger automatic login and logoff when you walk away with the phone.

    Trying to make Windows to do something that a two finger salute can do, is personally a waste of effort.

  6. Thanks lottie I'll go ahead and try that in a few minutes and let you know what happens.
    @bro67 " Trying to make Windows to do something that a two finger salute can do, is personally a waste of effort. "
    Not when you have a loud mechanical keyboard, and you want to quietly lock your computer. It's right next to my shortcuts for changing the power-mode (time to sleep). Personally I think it's convenient.

  7. So as far as I can tell, this fixed the issue. Although it hasn't been very long since I updated the script with your suggestion.
    Just wanted to say thanks for helping me with this issue, it was really annoying having to disconnect & reconnect my keyboard every time I logged back in.
    *Party

    I'm going to give it a few more days before I mark this as solved, just in case.
