Pc FIX: Asus EEE: How the CapsLock Gets Stuck

Gizmos Grabowski: Asus EEE: How the CapsLock Gets Stuck: "Asus EEE: How the CapsLock Gets Stuck

How: CapsLock gets stuck when the lid of the netbook is closed while the computer is still running. This puts the netbook into sleep mode, but also forces on CapsLock.

Solution: As I noted in an earlier posting, the solution is to press Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, which reboots the X Windows managers, and resets the CapsLock to normal. So, don't close the lid; or else shut down the computer before closing the lid.

Why: I don't know why the problem occurs happens. Now that we know the how, maybe Asus can find the why.
