Re: Laptops & External Numpad

Hi Darrell,
No, can't report any.  I am sometimes docked and other times roaming and
have my laptop in hibernate or completely shut down, so I am connecting and
disconnecting keyboards and keypads on the fly.

Hi Greg,

I've heard that some external numeric keypads have trouble when used in
conjunction with modifiers such as the insert key.  Have you experienced any
such problems initiating any JAWS commands with the Targus?

Thanks.
