The best is to create a separate user account for your wife, so when she wants to use the computer, just log out and let her log in with her user name. That's the best way of ensuring jaws won't disturb her. Sorry I don't' know how to create a user account but I know it can be done. Otherwise hit insert+f4 and enter. If she finished, hit your shortcut key which you have set such as control+alt+j. To put jaws in sleep mode, you go into configuration manager with insert+f6. but this is only if you want jaws not to speak in a certain program. So in that program load the configuration manager, hit alt+s and go to advanced options. Select the checkbox: sleep mode. hth ________________________________ From: jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Mark Mansworth Sent: 16 May 2007 02:01 PM To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Sorry but lost it! Hi Simple query I hope but have totally forgotten how to put "Jaws", into sleep or mute mode, or however it is put, as if the option is there it is hiding from me in the various "Jaws", menus and as no "mute" button anywhere I can find! My wife hates using the PC with my Jaws working and other then unloading how can I put the bugger off whilst she uses the computer? Oh using the latest Beta version as new PC which has "Vista", on it, which at mo is driving me nuts! Thanks Mark.
