The keystroke is windows key + INSERT + F4 but I think we are talking about two 
different issues.

My issue is just simply that it takes a long time for my PC to begin to log off 
or begin to shut down. I can exit JAWS fine and it runs great while it's 
running. It just takes a long time for my PC to log me off.

Yes I am also on my xp pro service pack 3.

I notice that if I start with jaws 9  it is ok then go to 10 it is sluggish and 
gets worse the longer the pc is running, and also after 10 has been running and 
do a insert f4 it takes a while for jaws to stop speaking, and then if you do 
the insert f4 to turn off jaws 10 and say ok, then start jaws 9 it has some of 
the jaws 10 trats.


I found the only way to solve this is to completely shut down and restart the 


I know ther is a keystroke to unload the jaws memory, but I can not remember it 
and can not find it.


Does anyone know the keystroke?

I've noticed since installing the first JAWS 10 beta that my Vista machine 
takes a good 10 to 30 seconds before I hear the log off sound.


If I unload JAWS it goes back to normal and I hear the log off sounds almost 
instantly after choosing to log off.


Is anybody else having this issue. Sometimes it can take quite a while to log
