CAPS lock turning on automatically
« on: June 07, 2018, 06:50:03 am »
Has anyone started to have an issue recently with CAPS lock turning on automatically,sometimes after a screen closure? It started happenign occassionally on my device.

I'l check my keys to make sure it's not somehow pressing Fn and Tab and activating it, but wonderedif anyone had seen this post firmware update?

thanks
Michael

I had it happen for the first time yesterday. I rebooted the Gemini to fix it, hasn't happened again since then.

Alt+tab also triggers capslock for some reason.  could be related to those keys being pressed when the screen is closed.  hopefully that gets addressed, whatever the cause.

I'll strip the keyboard back and re-seat them just in case it's the screen closing is causing it.

It may be related to key ghosting as has been mentioned elsewhere on the forum, however for me it happens after I've used certain apps e.g. dosbox. A reboot makes the behaviour go away for a while.

I think this is a new bug in the latest firmware - seems to happen more when Google assistant comes up.

Had caps lock stuck again this morning. Seems to happen when opening the Gemini from a closed/sleep state. Haven't figured out what causes it yet.

Reboot is the only thing that fixes it.

Yeah seems to be when it's been inactive for a while. Sometimes I notice google assistant is on when I open the screen with the letter 'z' in the search box. It's bizarre.
