Re: Sluggish Shortcut keystrokes with JFW6.0 and Windows XP SP2

Adrian, Jeff,

I've noticed the same thing, and I thought it was something wrong with my system; glad to know it's not. But, I've found that *sometimes* the problem can be eliminated by rebooting. If, after a reboot, the problem continues, reboot again, until it resolves. If you don't find your shortcut keystrokes responding sluggishly immediately after any given reboot, the problem won't recur until, at least, the next reboot. -- an argument for leaving the computer running continuously, but it also makes installing new software a nuisance.

Blessed Be,

Dana

This is something that I've also found with Windows XP SP2, but I get
the feeling its something that we just have to grin and bear, as I've
noticed even when using screen magnification packages like Zoomtext,
this is also happening.

Just seems to be something that's happened with Windows SP2 and there's
not a lot we can do about it.

All, I recently installed Windows XP with SP1 and defined several
shortcut keystrokes.  I then installed XP SP2 and my keystrokes are now
taking about 4 seconds before they start to execute.  The computer is
idol, there is no disk activity.  Until I installed SP2, the response
was nearly instantaneous.



As I use keystrokes to launch almost everything, this is a major impact
to my use of the system.  I would very much appreciate any suggestions.



Much thanks, Jeff
