There then is Send on the left and End/Power on the right; nothing between.

Then there is the 12-key standard phone keypad. I may have some growing pains with the thing, but definitely worth $30.00.

Re: The end of my shiny Android saga.

Carolyn Arnold
 

The Voice Command is in Tools. I can try to go there and get
it, but it appears from what it did this afternoon, that it
pretty much rreads contacts to make calls. I thought it
might send a message like Siri, but I'm pretty sure it only
does the contacts, and it is having to adjust to my voice,
but finally got one right and called. I just wanted to see
if I could make it do it.

I am trying to figure how to make it save a new contact. My
husband says I want to do it all in a day. I say why not? He
is a one who can take things slow, says we do a better job
one thing at a time.

Re: The end of my shiny Android saga.

Sorry, Ann Parson for getting your last name wrong.

I am having some trouble figuring out exactly how to do
texts and put in new contacts. My husband says I want to do
it all in a day, well, why not? I have deleted some contacts
and put in a few speed dials. I like them better than
favorites, but memory is something that has come easily for
me, so whatever works for someone.

Re: Lenovo laptops

 

I have the L 540. It has the full keyboard, I mean the numpad. It's
arrow keys are close together, but the down arrow has a raised
lip/line. That makes it easier for me to feel it, but I'm guessing
someone with better sensitivity (or normal touch) will feel it better.
I've not found an applications key, but where one would be on my
keyboard there is a print screen button.... I plan on using sharpkeys
to re map that to appliccations when I get a chance.

Re: Sleeping Laptop Won't Wake Up

Gene
 

When any computer is sleeping or hibernating, the power button never shuts it off.  It always resumes operations.  You can set the power button to do different things if you press it when the computer is running.  when it is in any form of suspended or more or less suspended operation, the power button resumes operation.  To do otherwise would make no sense.

If you purchase the cast iron weight, they are going to have different
sizes for each different weight. That's how I separate the 5,10 and

Subject: [TechTalk] Sleeping Laptop Won't Wake Up
 
Hi All,
 
On my wife's Lenovo Windows 7 Pro laptop we made sleep & wake tasks for it, but when it's sleeping it doesn't wake up when you press any of the keys.  Is there a setting that I need to change for it to wake up when pressing the spacebar for example?  Or, did this press any key to wake up need to be written into the task?  All help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

A funny thing happened with my quest for info on the Logitech K120 keyboard

"Marvin Atkins"
 

Hello all,
 
A few days ago I sent this group the below email:
 
“Hello all,
 
Does anyone have, or know of, the Logitech K120 keyboard? I can’t seem to find out if this keyboard has the original six-pack and inverted t arrow keys.
 
Thanks,
Marvin”
I did not receive a reply: I had looked on the Walmart site, Amazon site and inquired on Google but I could not get an impression if this keyboard was what I am looking for; meaning, a standard keyboard with the six-pack and inverted T arrow keys. Well, tonight I was testing out the IPhone app ‘Seeing AI’ (app that reads text via the IPhone camera among other things the app can do) and I thought I will run this across the keyboard I am currently using to see if it picks up a name. Guess what, I am using the Logitech K120 and didn’t even know it.  How stupid was that? Anyway, I will now order two or three of these keyboards just to have around in case my wife or I need one.
 
Thanks for listening,
Marvin
