My phone is experiencing a delay in displaying the lock screen when i press the lock button.

Question: My phone is experiencing a delay in displaying the lock screen when i press the lock button.

When i try to wake my phone up, it shows "resuming" for two or three seconds and then displays the lock screen. Is anyone else facing this issue ? Is there any solution to this problem ?

Preferred Solution: My phone is experiencing a delay in displaying the lock screen when i press the lock button.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I've been having this problem for a long time and I have had to take the caps lock button off the keyboard in case I press it! so I use the shift button instead.

Each time I press the caps lock button on my PC, the computer just locks up and continuosly beeps annoyingly. With no other choice I then have to reboot the computer. The strange thing is that if I press the reset button, then the monitor doesn't turn on and stays turned off with the orange light. If I shut it down and then switch it back on, then it starts up ok.

Once it starts up it also beeps 6 times at the memory check section etc. the black screen part, once the PC is turned on.

Anyway, this problem was happening before I formatted my computer and it was ok for a few days after I formatted, but has now started up again!!! I thought I got rid of the problem. I've tried different keyboards and the same thing happens. I tried re-installing the drivers for the keyboard as well.

I really don't know what to do. I've tried different keyboards, tried formatting and installing new drivers.... Could it be something with the BIOS?

Thanks a lot

It happens in all the programs that I use, even when I'm renaming a file. For example, when I'm typing this post, or on Microsoft Word, or Notepad, and when I press on the Caps Lock button sometimes to change between capital letters and lower case, the "focus" (or whatever the technical term is), switches away from that particular window and I have to click on the particular window again to continue typing. There is no other window that appears when the "focus" switches. Any help is appreciated! Thank You!

Answer:Windows snaps away sometimes when I press on the Caps Lock button

This sometimes happens to me when I accidentally hit the (A) and (Shift) key at the same time. Of course I was intending to hit the Cap key.

My recent purchase of the above All-in-One PC (running on Windows 10) included the Lenovo SK-8861 keyboard which has no lights for the CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK keys. How do I get them to be displayed on the screen when pressed? When I went into Display Settings in Control Panel, I could not find the option to set them on or off.  so, based on the instructions on https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht002122, I installed the Hotkey driver from http://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/downloads/ds031814.  When I now go into Advanced Settings under Display Settings and click on Screen Configurations, I can see the Enable on-screen display checkbox and the Appearance settiings but the expected Indicator Settings for NUM LOCK and CAPS LOCK aren't being displayed as expected. Can anybody advise what I need to do to enable these settings? Lenovo On-Screen-Display is listed under the Installed Programs in Control Panel. Many thanks.      

Answer:Displaying the CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK indicators on the Lenovo AIO 510 Ideacentre

I do not have an answer for how to enable them via the control plane, but I can point you to a free tool called Keyboard LEDs that I have used in the past that when installed will put an indicator in the system tray, and will sound a tone  and display on screen if so configured in its settings.. Cheers,

Hi,

I've just a simple questions (maybe): I recognized, that pressing the NUM LOCK key causes the LED of that key to flash on, ok thats`s normal, but also the CAPS Lock key LED turns on weak.

Now, when I'm pressing the CAPS Lock the LED gets brighter.
Switching off NUM Lock turns off the LED, thats ok, the CAPS LOCK is still burning bright (because it was pressed as well).
Pressing CAPS LOCK again turns the LED off.

Funny thing is: Pressing the CAPS Lock forces the LED of it and the LED of the NUM LOCK to turn on.....

Any ideas or hints?

Hi,

how to disable Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock screen messages?



I have desktop pc with two keyboards usb and bluetooth. Also TOSHIBA Bluetooth Stack software, but in device manager: keyboard > hid keyboard device both using microsoft drivers. And I dont have any software installed for keyboards. Also bluetooth has separate system tray indications (it is also disabled) so its not that. I made some googling and found other fix it with Hkey_Local_Machine\Software\Widcomm\BTConfig\General KeyIndication set to 0, but I dont have it in registry. Acualy I dont have anywhere in registry KeyIndication. So any ideas how to disable it? Thanks

Answer:Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock screen messages

Hi,

You'll find that the messages are controlled by a piece of software that came pre-installed on your machine when you bought it. Try looking for a Hotkey managing app to see if the notifications can be disabled.

While following instructions in manual, it tells me I need a lock code. Where can I find it?
"Lock Mode
When the phone is in Lock Mode, restrictions are placed on phone use. You can
receive calls and messages, but cannot place outgoing calls (except for emergency
numbers) until you unlock the phone. Lock Mode also restricts access to menus and
the volume key. Your phone’s Lock Code is required. To access Lock settings:
From standby mode, press Menu ? Settings ? Phone Settings ? Security ? Lock

Replaced Ubuntu with Windows 8 fine however now on some of my keys the fn key is reversed (Ive included a picture to show which keys). The keys affected imply that number lock is on, however it is not and i have ensured so using registry editor, stick keys is not on either.

Answer:CAPS LOCK button and NUM LOCK button LED's not working

I'm not sure if you've resolved this issue but I solved the problem by removing the charger plug, then the battery.  While the battery is out, push the power button.  Reinstall the battery and reconnect power.  When the notebook rebooted, the caps lock light and num lock lights were once again working.

Hi everyone, im having some issues with WhatsApp. When I go onto my lock screen settings to chose individual apps or one detailed app, I can never get WhatsApp to display any notifications. The name is in the list for both options, but it comes up as a red cross in whichever slot I assign it too? Normal notifications work fine, just not regarding the lock screen. I'm running the latest build, but after searching around, I can't find any advice anywhere either! Any help is appreciated!

Kind of screen glitch that appears before windows 8 lock screen appears at start /restart and a notable delay in starting/restarting time than with my 1st win8 install.

I think this appeared after I installed my windows 7 back ( dont ask me why..)( a clean install) and installed my win8 back again.I dont think Ive done them corectly:

I couldnt install win 7 it in C ,neither to format that partition because of this message [Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks] and an error code 0x0000 smth... while attempting to format the C. I could only manage to instal windows 7 back after deleting all of the partiton and now I have a single C one.

When Ive tried to reinstall windows 8 these days I expected to see only a partiton where to put my windows but instead there were other minor ones too ( they dint shown during my win7 install) like they appear now if I open disk management .

So now I have that glitch when starting windows 8. I dont know how to describe it: its a black screen -with that windows 8 doted loading wheel -partially covering my Motherboard logo screen ( that screen at startup with bios setup, boot menu options etc).I say partially becuase I can see parts of my motherboard screen on left and right but they are kinda shredded and disolved into scraps.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Not able to press keyboard to get from lock screen to password screen

Okay, I think I've figured out a solution.

What I did was right click the desktop and choose "Personalize", then choose "Lock Screen" and switch "Show Windows background picture on the sign-in screen" to "Off".

This button when in tablet mode locks and unlocks the auto-rotate.in 'laptop', 'tent', and 'kiosk' mode it is supposed to flip the screen around. This does not work on mine, anyone know what driver needs to be updated?

Answer:Thinkpad Twist screen lock button

I had to experiment with this a little myself, and I completely understand the frustration you have? however there are no driver updates for the auto-rotate at this time.
 
Currently, the twist is designed to auto-rotate by placing the Twist into full tablet mode first, then set the auto-rotate to off, once in the desired orientation move to ?tent? mode.
For ?laptop? or ?Kiosk? mode, start back in full tablet mode and enable auto-rotate to the desired orientation.
 
This solution has worked for me and I hope it helps you as well.

Hello! Since the most recent build of W-10 (9879), my caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock lights do not function on either computer on which I have W-10 installed (a desktop with a USB keyboard and a laptop with an integrated keyboard). The keys still work to correctly toggle the functionality, but the keyboard lights don't work. In case it matters, my keyboard's actual backlights and my mouse's internal light (not the laser, the internal LED) are working correctly, it's just the CL, NL, and SL indicators that don't function.

Anyone have any ideas for fixing this?

Left it on and charging over night... go to grab my phone this morning and I wake it up, enter my pin, and....... nothing. it stays on the screen with the PIN with the 6 digits entered. if I let it sit long enough it just goes back to sleep - waking it up asks for the PIN again. I can't even connect it to WP for Mac. Help?

I had the same problem. I overtried to enter the PIN and I finally ended flashing my phone back to 8.1 but of course you can hard reset it. I heard the best way to fix this is to let the phone sit for a few hours then try again, that way it might work again

Lenovo Y720 So, when I hit caps ock or num lock an on screen display tells me whether capslock or num ock has been pushed. While I appreciate it is helpful for some, in my case it become a hinderance. You need to remove "num lock" for single key print screen request, and if I have a short time frame, I am stuck without being able to screenshot until the num lock indicator goes away.  How do I turn off the on screen display.  Now, before you send me to the previously asked questions of similar nature, I have tried. There is no "display settings" in Control Panel. There is no "advanced display settings" on the settings panel. And there is no way to control it through NVIDIA or Intel graphics settings (that I can see).  Thanks kindly.

Good afternoon,

I just did a clean install of 7 to fix errors with my laptop, and it fixed one, but not the other main issues,
My caps lock, and number lock button on the keyboard don't have a light on it and the pop up that is supposed to pop up doesn't show up on screen.
I figured by doing a clean install it would all magically appear again... I was wrong, I have tweaked everything I could think of looking/trying to change setting from the keyboard in control panel, (including messing around with ease of use) and Gateways so called "support" area was of no help, as well as googling the issue has led me down a path of useless tips, I have also looked on this forum for help.

Any help in this area would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Sometimes electrical components needs to have all power sources removed and reintroduced to work properly.  Try performing a hard reset first, if it doesn't work then try updating your BIOS.  If neither works...It's pretty much dead and not worth fixing.  To Perform A Hard Reset Shut down the computer by going to the Start menu and selecting shut down. (If you have no display, hold the power button down for  5 seconds)Disconnect the AC Adapter from the notebook.Remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook.  There will be a switch/button to eject the battery.Wait at least 1 minute with all power sources disconnected.Re-insert the battery and reconnect the AC Adapter and then attempt to power on the notebook.

What kind of data needs to be extracted from the phone.
Anything in One Note, Word, Excel and pictures can be recovered via a backed up Microsoft account.
Most apps such as Dropbox/Box or other cloud stuff can be logged into via desktop.
If it's messages or contacts those items will also be saved to cloud services and they should reappear by signing in with the current MS account on any other Windows based phone.

(Windows 8.1) Lock screen and power button on start menu won't appear, please help! 

Machine: HP Pavillion 15 (laptop) with Windows 8.1
Some context: Recently I was suddenly left unable to use my task manager, unable to lock my computer, and there was no power button on the start menu. Using CTRL + ALT + Delete only gave one option, to change users.

where i created a new key, "Personalization", in which i created a new DWORD (32-bit), "NoLockScreen", and set its value to 0.

Ok I've been suffering this issue with Windows 10 for as long as I can remember, and it's stopping me using it as the primary OS.

In short I have two, intermittent issues which nothing I do seems to resolve.

1: After waking up from sleep and typing my username password and hitting return, the screen goes black. Cursor moves, Windows + P operates (Screen options do appear from the right) but doesn't actually make any difference, and I'm stuck having to hard reset because ctrl alt del doesn't work either. This isn't an every time issue, hence googling seems to fail miserably because all the examples are people getting it every time. This, for me, is a 3 in 10 regularity.

2: Logging a user off occasionally sees the lock screen ... locking up. Ironically. Mouse moves, and power button DOES work but that's all that works.

These issues are plaguing me and I just cannot fix them - endless googling has left me empty handed, and I've tried disabling SLI. No help. I've tried disabling apps. No help. Nothing I do makes any difference and event viewer doesn't seem to reveal anything useful either.

Anyone got any idea how I can resolve this?

Hello, Can somebody advise - how to disable turn off of display after automatic phone locked. Otherwise i dont understand the idea of lockind screen(with multiply features) if is is not visible after few seconds because of black display.

Answer:How do I disable my Nokia Lumia 730 screen after an automatic phone lock?

The lockscreen's purpose is to protect your device from accidentally responding to unwanted touch events (e.g. while carrying the device in one of your pockets). Or - if using a PIN protected lockscreen - to restrict access to the device itself. The reason why the screen goes black/off after a while should be very obvious. It does it to reduce battery consumption.
I'm sure there's no way to disable that.

Hey guys,

after my Radeon Center repeatedly asked me to upgrade to the current driver version 16.12.2, which I already had installed as seen in the Radeon Center upgrade section (?), I decided to uninstall all AMD entries featured at the Windows 10 program summary and uninstall screen and further deleted all AMD labeled folders on drive "C". After rebooting I continued to redownload the current version of AMDs Radeon Center, installed it and then proceeded to download the latest driver via Radeon Center, that was recommended (being version 16.12.2). After rebooting the PC things were fine and I could either run my browser, graphic processing programs as well as multimedia tasks like games.

Problems kicked in the next day when - after rebooting and passing the lock-in screen - the desktop locked up completely, and my mouse froze. This occurred after launching Firefox and opening a new page while moving around my mouse. After the resulting forced restart I noticed that this happens whenever I decide to launch a program and start to move the mouse for a few seconds, or even more of an issue, directly after trying to uninstall a program via Windows 10 program summary and uninstall screen, or when trying to install an application such as AMDs driver clean uninstall suite or a new Radeon Center install package. Desktop and all running applications instantly freeze and there's no way out except of a forced restart which will lead to the same problem over and over ag... Read more

Answer:Experiencing permanent freezes/lock-ups after 16.12.2 update | Win10

Welcome to the TenForums @JRTen

Could I suggest that you first boot to safe mode. Create a restore point. Run Display Driver Uninstaller, available at bleepingcomputer.com or majorgeeks.com. If possible scan file with AV. (You can hopefully do download and scan on alternate system.)

Once drivers successfully removed, install older 16.x series.

Tell windows to stop updating your drivers

To disable driver updates, Control Panel, System and Security, System, on left Advance System Settings, Hardware Tab, Device Installation settings, click No. This may cause a menu to open. Pick I’ll decide

reboot out of safe mode

and don't allow AMD to update. I see on their system they have V17 out as of yesterday.

One man's opinion, update drivers when something won't run or BSOD's appear. I would also recommend you look at Macrium Reflect for OS imaging. You can keep versions. Then when S#!t happens you can restore reliably and quick.

Good luck. Post back on your results, it will help others.

Hi guys.
My Lumia 930 (OS Version 8.10.104266.359) has just this morning started demanding that I set a complex password consisting of 4 characters, a number, a capital letter, a lower case letter, and the blood of a chinchilla. This is just to get passed my lock screen.
I've gone into all the settings options, there is no option to turn password off any more, it's locked as "ON".
I've never had a password on my phone as I find them frustrating, especially with such ridiculous requirements.
In my opinion the best way to protect your information is to not give your phone to the sort of nob who would snoop through your information. Whether I'm right or wrong, I'd at least like the option to make that decision myself.
Anyone else seeing this? Is there a way I can disable it?

Hi! So, I've upgraded to Windows 8 RTM this weekend and I'm having this problem: Every time I boot the PC (shutdown or restart), the Num Lock key is off. Since my password uses numbers, and I'm pretty used to type it with Num Lock, I'd like to keep it always on. It was fine on Windows 7. Now, I've searched for it, and there is the "InitialKeyboardIndicators" key on regedit. I have changed values for all of them to "2", and it didn't work. My BIOS say to keep it always on. Is there anything else that I'm missing?

Can anyone tell me how to eliminate the lock screen preview and bypass the 'Sign In' button on the lock screen?

I often put my computer to sleep then to bring it back (in Windows 7) I would simply hit the space bar and turn on my mouse and it would go straight to my desktop. Now, I hit the space bar turn on my mouse, and it takes me to the lock screen preview then I hit the space bar and it takes me to a lock screen where I have to click 'Sign In' even though I have no password set.

I'm guessing I'll no longer be able to hit the spacebar, turn on my mouse and go directly to the desktop but if I can hit the spacebar, turn on the mouse, then hit the space bar one last time, that would be satisfactory.

When I hit Caps Lock in Windows 7 an alert (picture of a padlock in grey) icon appears indicating I have turned it on or off. While the alert is showing no input from the keyboard is accepted. This is frustrating because I usually hit Caps Lock and type immediately, and then find about 6 letters have not been accepted. The speed of the system (laptop) is otherwise OK. Is there a way to reduce the time the alert shows, or turn it off altogether?

I don't think that's a Windows 7 thing.Have you installed any keyboard software to make it do all kinds of fancy things such as function keys to quick launch certain things? If you have used an installation disc that came with the keyboard then you could always uninstall it. --

I like having my monitor power off soon after activity stops. Currently, I have it powering off after 2 minutes of inactivity. I am also very big on locking my PC when I step away. So, I also have the screen saver kick in after 2 minutes. (Of course, I never even see a screen saver because the monitor is off. And, in fact, my screen saver is set to "None". So this setting essentially means the PC is set to lock after 2 minutes.)

However, what often happens is that I'm sitting at the PC, and the monitor turns off, but I don't want it to lock. I move the mouse, and it's locked--even if I intervened within a second or two.

With Windows XP, I used to be able to use the ScreenSaverGracePeriod registry value to work around this. I've tried this with my Windows 8 system, but it doesn't work. I have tried using ScreenSaverGracePeriod as both REG_SZ and as DWORD.

Is there any way to delay the PC from locking after the monitor powers off by just a few seconds? I know I can have the monitor power off after 2 minutes but set the screen saver to 3 minutes, but I'd like to reduce the delay to a matter of seconds, if that is possible.

Answer:Delay the time between monitor off and workstation lock?

Hello Crosspatch,

I suppose one way would be to disable screen saver password protection to prevent it from basically locking the PC and asking for a password when you resume from screen saver.

The only drawback is that you would then need to lock the PC when you do want it to be password protected when unlocking. If you like, the desktop context menu added by either tutorial below can help make it easier to lock the PC.

In Windows 7 there was a Keyboard tab that let you use the Shift key to turn off Caps Lock, it seems to be missing in Windows 10.

Anyone know how to set this?

Hello,
Newbie here. I am currently running a Dell Inspiron One all in one touch screen computer with the wireless keyboard. Every time I press the caps lock button it crashes my computer and gives me the blue screen of death. I did notice that I can turn the caps lock on and off with the touch screen keyboard with no issues. Also I can turn the caps lock on with the touch screen key board and then turn the caps lock off with the wireless keyboard with no issues. So it seems to cause this only when the caps lock key is turned on from the wireless keyboard. Tried searching for other problems like this but no luck.

Model: Inspiron 2305
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 610e Processor 2.40GHz
RAM: 4.00GB (3.75GB usable)
System type: 64 bit operating system

Thanks for your help.

Answer:Computer crashes when I press the caps lock key

Try another keyboard and see if the BOSD happens again. Or there is a driver conflict somewhere.
